Sabryna Harvey

I am a 3rd year Midwifery student at Mount Royal University. I have grown up alongside of, and have worked in the social work field mostly with at risk youth, or those with special needs, and their families for about 11 years in the Calgary area, as well as in the United States. I studied General Science at the University of Guelph in Ontario prior to embarking on my midwifery journey.

My love for midwifery came quite unexpectedly as I was originally applying for the Athletic Therapy program at Mount Royal. I was given an opportunity to shadow a Registered Midwife here at Aurora (some of you may know Kimberly!), and was able to get some hands-on experience finding fetal heartbeats, practice identifying fetal positions, and a chance to talk with some clients about why they chose to have a midwife. On the drive home I was so overjoyed that I cried because I truly felt that becoming a midwife was my calling. The foundational beliefs around midwifery care for women and their families is something I strongly connect with and believe in. I am eager to help support each individual and their families through their own powerful journey.

In my spare time I try to get out to the mountains as much as possible with my partner (Robert) and my dog (Stanley) either fly fishing, hiking, camping, skiing, or snowshoeing. I really love to get in touch with nature as I find that it truly grounds me. I have a bit of a green thumb and enjoy tending to my plants or garden and when I get the chance – my collection of house plants has more than tripled since the pandemic began. When/ if the time permits, I love to curl up with a good mystery novel – arguably I will read an entire book or two in one sitting if left unattended. I am very excited to be working alongside the midwives at Aurora and under the guidance of Kimberly this semester!
