Hi all! My name is Sarah Brubacher and I am in my second year of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University, completing my Normal Childbearing placement at the Kitchener-Waterloo Midwifery Associates. I grew up in St. Jacobs, so I know Waterloo region quite well, and I am excited to be doing my placement in my home community. Before going into the Midwifery program, I completed my Bachelor’s of Science in Health Studies from the University of Waterloo.
I myself was delivered by a midwife in a somewhat dramatic turn of events. Through my mother, I heard many stories about her amazing experiences with her midwife. So when considering where to enter the health field midwifery seemed like a good path for me. I am passionate about women’s reproductive health and support for women through pregnancy and early postpartum. This passion has only continued to grow with my completion of the first several semesters of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster. I am excited to meet each one of you and share in your journey!
