Celebrating our Third-year Midwifery Preceptors on International Day of the Midwife
Ryerson’s Midwifery Education Program wants to send out a heartfelt thank you to all of our 3rd-year midwife preceptors -- local, provincial, national and international -- for the incredible learning opportunities you have provided to our students in the 2019-2020 academic year.
- Lisa Bishop, Dilico Anishinabek Family Care
- Jerren Helwig & Megan Lehman, Family Midwifery Care
- Lorelei Hammond & Heather Heinrichs, Hay River Midwives, Hay River, NWT
Heather is a fantastic midwife who is dedicated to her clients, extremely skilled & knowledgeable & was super generous & caring to me as a student.
- Houley Bah, Kate Mansbridge & Jenny Sinton, Kensington Midwives
- Celina Laursen, Haida Gwaii, BC
- Angel Brazeau-Taylor, Carol Cameron, Janis Dalacker, Sushma Lachmansingh, Anne Malott & Meagan McCarrell, Ambulatory Midwifery Unit, Markham-Stouffville Hospital
- Janice Parsons & Jinous Shahzamani, Midwife Alliance
Janice is an incredibly generous preceptor who was able to give me feedback while giving me confidence as well!
- Jenna Bly, Tiffany Fung, Andrea Luciuk & Shezeen Suleman, Midwifery and Toronto Community Health (MATCH), South Riverdale Community Health Centre
Together the [MATCH midwives] did a great job of welcoming, preparing and integrating me into the space where I had the opportunity to help care for the diverse populations in a dignified and self-reflexive manner. I was reminded of how important community health centres are to our neighbourhoods and especially pregnant people with complex health care needs. I appreciated the learning opportunity and highly recommend this placement for those interested in the Community Health Centre model of care.
- Kambili Husbands, Sophia Kehler & Kirsten Taylor, The Midwives’ Clinic East-York Don Mills
- Leah Klein & Ruby Van Vliet, Midwives Collective of Toronto
- Kylie Fawcett, Claire Rogers & Judy Rogers, Midwives of Georgian Bay
- Jasmine Chatelaine, National Aboriginal Council of Midwives
[This] was my first time in an academic research position and Jasmine was a phenomenal preceptor who took the time to explain the process and allowed me to be a part of all the facets. I had the opportunity to research and discuss the nuances of Midwifery care for rural, remote and urban populations. I appreciated the opportunity to do research that centered a decolonial lens to research including historical and hypothetical outcomes of research on Indigenous Midwives and Indigenous families. I gained experiences that I believe have improved my own academic research capabilities and expanded my social justice lens of how we care for families.
- Teresa Bandrowska, Ottawa Birth & Wellness Centre
Teresa was an outstanding preceptor, who always found opportunities for me to learn during my time at the OBWC.
