My name is Stephanie Munroe-Schijns, I am a senior midwifery student at McMaster and have the pleasure of doing a placement with the Kitchener-Waterloo Midwifery Associates from May 2020 to April 2021. I completed my Normal Childbearing placement with the St Jacobs Midwives and was very happy to hear that I was returning to KW for my final placement!
I am originally from Halifax, but resided in Cold Lake, Alberta with my partner and two wonderful dogs prior to entering the midwifery program. Upon completion of my degree I hope to return to NS and help midwifery grow in my home province. I discovered midwifery upon completing a BSc in physiology from McGill and I am so excited to be in my last year! While not in school I work at a daycare in Cold Lake, I love being around all the busyness and curiosity. In my spare time I love hanging out with my two dogs, playing video games or knitting, so far I can only knit hats and dish cloths but I am hoping to expand my skills!
Thank you for allowing me to be involved in your care!
