Alina Balzerson graduated with honours from the McMaster Midwifery Education Program in 2016. Since graduating, Alina has worked with midwifery practices in Orangeville and Cambridge and is excited to come back to St. Jacobs where she had been a student. Though raised on the prairies, she has called KW home for ten years since attending the University of Waterloo for her undergrad. Alina pursued midwifery after a Women’s Studies class where she was informed of the focus on woman-centred care and informed choice.

After work, Alina will be enjoying time with her own baby born in the summer of 2019, sewing quilts and baking. She is honoured to be apart of the care of pregnant people and families and looks forward to this time at St. Jacobs Midwives.
