My name is Brandy Dieker. I am in my final year of my midwifery degree at McMaster University. I grew up on a small hobby farm in a rural community outside of London, Ontario, where the incredible process of birth was not new to me. I have thus been fascinated with the processes of pregnancy and birth since I was a young girl, and it is a passion that has never waned.
Before I found midwifery, I completed a degree in Bio-Medical Sciences from the University of Guelph which I believe gives me a strong foundation upon which to build midwifery skills. I took elective courses like embryology and reproductive sciences to align with my calling to provide excellent maternal and neonatal health care. During my midwifery studies, I have had the privilege to train with midwives from London, Hamilton and St. Catharines and other health professionals from St. Catharines, Hamilton, Waterdown and Fergus.
I look forward to meeting you, supporting you and providing safe and respectful health care to you during your pregnancy journey. I would also like to thank you for being part of my journey in becoming a midwife!
