Eloise Douglas R.M.
I am awed and inspired every day by the power of the human body to grow and nourish a new life. I have always been intrigued by the process of pregnancy and birth.
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 honoured to be a participant in your care.
