“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.”

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!
