PaigeMy journey to midwifery began long before I knew what a midwife was. As a child I was fascinated by birth and by the physical transformation the body undergoes during pregnancy. I completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Dalhousie University in 2010 and graduated with both a valuable understanding of how the body works as well as a profound respect for all of the miraculous things our bodies are capable of.

During my first pregnancy I found midwifery and immediately felt a sense of purpose and direction. I graduated from Mount Royal University with a Bachelor of Midwifery in 2018 and am thrilled to be practicing and serving families in my home town of Calgary. My family has grown since the beginning of this journey and I’m now blessed to be Mama to three gorgeous littles and share life with my wonderful husband.

I believe in our bodies innate wisdom during this process and trust families to make well informed choices about their care. Pregnancy, birth and post partum are all incredibly transformative experiences and I aim to provide safe, caring and empowering experiences to women and their families throughout each of these important stages.

I am grateful to each and every family that has invited me to be a part of their prenatal care and into their birth spaces. There is nothing more humbling then watching you bring your babies into the world.
