I discovered my passion for midwifery in The Gambia, where I worked as a Peace Corps health volunteer for 2.5 years, living in a remote village. The struggle and determination of my friends during their pregnancies and births were a true inspiration. I decided to study midwifery at the University College Cork, in Ireland. Training and working at the largest maternity hospital outside of Dublin, well prepared me to provide top quality midwifery care through all stages of pregnancy, birth, postpartum and newborn care. While Ireland is an amazing country, my partner and I decided Canada would be the best place to grow our future.
After moving back to Canada in March 2020, I have since completed the International Midwifery Preregistration Program (IMPP), which prepares internationally trained midwives to work in the Ontario setting. I am deeply grateful to now be offered this opportunity to join the Kitchener Waterloo Midwifery Associates. I am very much looking forward to getting to know everyone and am honored to be a participant in your care.
