Renee Hughes

Hi, my name is Renee Hughes and I am currently in the International
Midwifery Pre-registration Program (IMPP) at Ryerson University.

I am really excited about doing my clinical placement with the
Kitchener-Waterloo Midwifery Associates from the middle of October
for 14 weeks. I cannot tell you how incredibly grateful I feel to be
working alongside these fabulous midwives with such wonderful
women.

I was born and raised in Newfoundland. I studied marine biology
originally and worked as a scientific diver for many years. We do not
have midwives in Newfoundland so I was unfamiliar with the
profession. However, once I realised my true calling, I had to uproot
and follow my heart. I moved to New Zealand where I studied,
graduated and worked as an independent midwife for over a decade.
It seems since my son was born almost 4 years ago, home has been
calling. Our little family has made the move back to Canada to begin
a whole new journey.

I am so looking forward to meeting and getting to know everyone at
the Kitchener-Waterloo Midwifery Associates as we work together for
the next few months.
