Our Current Midwifery Students
Ensuring the Growth of Midwifery Care in Ontario.
St. Jacobs Midwives are committed to ensuring the growth of midwifery care in Ontario by providing practical learning opportunities for students of the Ontario Midwifery Education Program.
We encourage our clients to welcome the involvement of midwifery students in their care.
Grace is a second-year midwifery student from McMaster University. She will be with St. Jacobs Midwives from January to late April, 2019, and is excited to get to know both the area and expecting families!
In her spare time, she enjoys creative crafts such as crochet and knitting, animals, nature, and tea. She looks forward to supporting new and experienced families alike as they grow through the childbearing experience. Since starting at McMaster, her passion and respect for this profession has only grown, and she looks forward to participating in and contributing to the St. Jacobs practice.
Isomi is honoured and excited to be doing her senior year placement at St. Jacobs Midwives. Prior to starting her education as a student midwife, she worked in social services for about 15 years. Isomi has a Masters degree in education and has lived in several different communities across Canada and abroad. She is interested and invested in supporting marginalized populations accessing safe, quality prenatal, intrapartum, and postnatal care.
Isomi currently lives in Guelph with her partner and three children. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading fiction, and being active when she gets the chance. She looks forward to getting to know individuals, families, and your community.
