My name is Jess Beauvais and I am from Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. I am in my second year of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University. I am thrilled to be joining the Kitchener-Waterloo Midwifery Associates for my first clinical placement this summer.
I was drawn to midwifery through my interest in maternal and family health. I hope to one day be involved in making midwifery services more accessible to indigenous communities in Canada.
My partner and I just relocated to Kitchener, Ontario and are looking forward to getting to know the area. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, kayaking, and spending time with my pets. I also have a passion for reading and making dreamcatchers for my family and friends.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of your pregnancy and birth experiences.
