Hello! My name is Kaitlin and I am thrilled to be joining the team at Blue Heron Midwives! For most of my life I have lived in the Waterloo Region and I am very thankful for the opportunity to return to my home community and support women here throughout pregnancy and birth.
Before studying Midwifery, I spent time travelling in South Africa and living in Winnipeg,Manitoba for two years after high school. Afterwards, I studied Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo where I was fascinated by the human body and drawn to learning about pregnancy and birth.
At that time, I also gained experience working as a receptionist at a midwifery clinic and attended births as a doula, which solidified my desire to become a midwife. I completed various midwifery and obstetrical placements in Palmerston, Sudbury, Cambridge, Fergus, Collingwood, Haliburton and finally with Blue Heron Midwives here in Waterloo.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, cooking, board games and spending time with my family and friends. I look forward to meeting you and being involved in your journey to welcome a new little one into the world!
