Great news to start the week! We are welcoming one vaccinated support person to come with clients to their clinic appointments. St. Joe's has also updated their visitor policy: one support person at OB visits and ultrasounds at Fontbonne; 2 support people in labour and 2 support people at the bedside on Mother Baby Unit (can rotate up to 5 people). As always, we continue to encourage as much participation of partners in virtual care as possible.

As we acknowledge all the good things about Canada, let's make today a day to listen to Aboriginal voices. Join us in reflecting on the troubling foundation that our country was built on and taking action for reconciliation. Systemic racism and the abuse of our Indigenous communities is not just a problem of the past. Let's commit to our role in healing the past and protecting the future.

We are deeply saddened by the recent news about the discovery of 215 children buried at the Kamloops residential school on the territory of the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc First Nation. 215 children. 215 devastated families. Countless heartbroken family, tribe and community members.

This is not distant history....this is an example of the ongoing intergenerational trauma experienced by Indigenous communities at the hands of white colonizers.

The lives of Indigenous people in Canada continue to be systematically oppressed, discriminated against, abused and ignored. We commit ourselves as individuals and as an organization to continue to learn, make reparation to and advocate for our Indigenous communities.

A Residential School Crisis Line is available to connect for support 24 hours a day. 1-866-925-4419.

Immediate mental health counselling and crisis intervention for all Indigenous people and available in some Indigenous languages is available at 1-855-242-3310.

Indigenous women can access support and resources 24 hours a day with services in 14 languages with Talk 4 Healing. Call or text 1-855-554-4325.

But when you are new to an area, living away from friends and family or the first of your friends to have a baby, it can be really, really lonely to be a new parent. ⁠

THM is also please to welcome Claudia as a senior student starting in May.

Claudia Di Clemente is a senior student in the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University, who also holds an Hon. B.Sc. in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Toronto. Claudia is drawn to midwifery practice as it intersects with both reproductive healthcare and client advocacy. In her time off, Claudia enjoys hanging out with her cat Maisie, taking care of her many houseplants, and spending as much time as possible outdoors.

THM is pleased to welcome 2 new senior Midwifery students to work with us for their final year of the McMaster program.

Touka will be joining us in April.

Touka is in her final year of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster and is excited to complete the program in her hometown! Prior to midwifery Touka spent a brief time in Nursing at McMaster which grew her perspective on holistic approaches to healthcare. Combined with a passion for reproductive and maternal health, and shared values of autonomy, choice, and accessibility, Touka was naturally drawn to midwifery care.

Touka is grateful to be a part of such a significant moment in people’s lives and looks forward to being a part of The Hamilton Midwives team.
