About us

“When a woman births, not only is a baby being born but so is a mother.
How we treat her will affect how she feels about herself as a mother
and as a parent.
Be gentle. Be kind. Listen.”
Ruth Ehrhardt, The Basic Needs of a Woman in Labour

Midwife

After completing 3 years as a student nurse, my passion was focused on women and birth. I enrolled in the Midwifery Education Programme at Laurentian University and I quickly fell in love with the midwifery profession. I graduated in April 2009, with a degree in Nursing and one in Midwifery. Prior to moving to Timmins, I worked as a Registered Midwife with the Sudbury Community Midwifery Practice. I also worked at the Sudbury Regional Hospital as a labour and delivery Registered Nurse. I am now well-established working as a Registered Midwife in Timmins, since June 1st, 2011. I am enjoying being back home and meeting all of my clients and their families. Aside from being a midwife, I worked as a part-time teacher with the Midwifery Education Program at Laurentian University. I also spent some time employed with the Timmins and District Hospital as a casual labour & delivery Registered Nurse. I look forward to meeting you in the near future!

Midwife

I am a graduate of Laurentian University’s Midwifery Education Programme, class of 2002. Upon graduation, I worked as a registered midwife in the London Ontario area prior to returning to Timmins, my hometown, to establish Boreal Midwifery Practice (BMP). Boreal Midwifery Practice was officially established in September 2007 and opened its doors to clients in January 2008. Since starting BMP I have had the pleasure of providing care to women and families in my hometown and have re-gained the great sense of community I could not find anywhere but in the “City with the Heart of Gold”. I also worked as an instructor for Laurentian University’s Midwifery Education programme from 2005 until 2011. My professional passion is in the promotion and support of breastfeeding. This interest has grown increasingly over the course of my professional career and was re-inforced by my own personal experiences in childrearing. I was a member of the London-Middlesex Breastfeeding Committee and am a member of the Timmins Breastfeeding Community Coalition. I worked as a solo-practising midwife from 2008 until May 2011. At that time, I happily welcomed Meghann Leonard, RM to BMP. I am thrilled to have such a knowledgable and dedicated partner working with me!
