Hello dear ones!

We hope you are all tucked in, safe and cozy at home.
In case you are not aware, the 401 is closed & many roads outside of Kingston are closed/not being maintained. If you live out of town and think you are in labour or have something come up that is urgent/emergent, please page your midwife and we will help you make a transportation plan. Otherwise, please stay home and we hope you are able to be warm, safe, and do some mega-snowstorm-resting.

Sincerely,
Your midwives.
(who are also staying at home but who are happy to venture outside for urgent/emergent/labour-type situations, including for the intrepid babies who might wish to be born during wild snowstorms.)

Ok Folks, Real Talk.

We have (sadly) decided not to host a CMK reunion picnic this summer. We want to wait until we can hug you and share food with you, without worrying about covid/monkey pox/etc and we just aren't there yet.

(We take care of tiny babies and pregnant people. There are no spare midwives. The reality is... we just can't hug 100's of people. And how could we possibly see you all and not hug you??)

BUT we want you to know that we miss you and we miss watching your wee babes grow into delightful humans - we know it goes by soooo slow sometimes- but to us, it's all going by really fast and it's both shocking and amazing to see your babies turn into toddlers (or even teenagers).

SO we thought we would host a virtual picnic.

(We know it's not the same... We know.)

Buuuuut we want to see the tiny miraculous (and also loud/messy/exhausting/busy/hilarious/sweet/etc) humans you are nurturing and we want to see your faces- the incredible people we have watched Become parents. We miss you.

Post your photos below in the comments!

(at a picnic!!!!)
(or in the grass!)
(eating ice cream!)
(eating sand!)
(in a lake!)
(anywhere you would like!)

All parents/babies/toddlers/schoolkids/teens/midwives/midwife kids/etc welcome.

Hopefully, see you in the park next summer. 🤞

Love,
CMK

We have a NEW midwife starting this month! Welcome, Cassy!!!
Here is a little intro from this lovely KINGSTONIAN:

I am thrilled to be starting my midwifery career at Community Midwives of Kingston. I was born and raised in Kingston, and it is a dream come true to be able to serve this incredible community as a Midwife.
I began my studies in Life Sciences at McMaster University, where I gained insights and experiences that led me to discover the wonderful work of midwives. I continued my studies at McMaster in the Midwifery Education program and completed clinical placements in Kitchener-Waterloo and Hamilton. I am beyond grateful to the midwives and families I have worked with and learned alongside.
I strive to provide quality evidence-based care that promotes health teaching, prioritizes client wellbeing, and honours individual choice. It is a privilege to care for clients during the physical changes and emotional experiences that occur throughout pregnancy and the transition to parenthood. I was drawn to this fulfilling profession because of the opportunity to support individuals and families during both the joyful and the challenging aspects of pregnancy, and all the moments in between.
In my spare time, you may find me outside getting fresh air and exercise on a long walk or while cycling, flipping through a cookbook to find a new recipe to try, or with a great book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.
I look forward to supporting you on your journey through pregnancy!

Current clients, check your email!
Support people are welcome back for clinic visits.

Hey Dear Ones,

Please help us welcome our new senior student, starting in May with Susan.

Hi everyone,
My name is Mags, my pronouns are they/them/iel.

I’m ecstatic to be completing my final year of the Midwifery Education Program while working with the Community Midwives
of Kingston.

I’m a mixed Métis-Settler from traditional Atikameksheng Anishnawbek territory, also known as Sudbury, Ontario. Growing up in various parts of Northern Ontario directly fueled my passion in advocacy work in accessibility for rural, remote, and northern health care. With a previous background in massage therapy, as well as gender and sexual studies, I knew that I wanted to
work with various family models and relational dynamics in health care. This has led me to my current work in decolonizing birth work, with a focus on harm reduction while providing trauma-informed care.

Throughout the course of my studies, I have worked in a variety of communities, such as Thunder Bay, Guelph, Ottawa and Hay River, in the Northwest Territories. This has given me a
unique understanding of the various experiences that surface throughout the perinatal period.

In my free time, you can find me outside, hiking, backcountry camping, running, writing music, cooking up a storm, or taking film photos of it all.

I’m really looking forward to working and learning with you!

My name is Claire. I love my human kid, my dog kids, gardens and travelling (but not during covid) the best. I do not love winter.

It’s been a year of firsts for me as a midwife and I am so excited to see where this midwife path is leading. But wherever it goes, I am continually grateful to work collaboratively with clients, babies, allies and colleagues.

I think midwifery is more important than ever, as a model and protector of accessible and respectful person-centered care, informed choice and reproductive freedom & I am very excited for midwifery to expand into more areas of reproductive and parent-child health. The world needs more midwives, in more healthcare spaces.

Happy International Day of the Midwife!

Hmmm, it is hard to answer the question, “why do you love being a midwife?” - there are so many reasons…my colleagues, my clients, the babies!! But the theme for this year’s International Day of the Midwife is “100 years of progress”. Since starting my career as a midwife I have witnessed midwifery practices become mainstream. Skin to skin immediately after birth has been a fixture in basic midwifery care and now we even facilitate it in the OR. Delayed cord clamping was a “fringe” midwifery quirk that when studied and researched proved to be phenomenally beneficial and is now standard care. Water immersion and birth went from something you could only do at home to seeing the installation of permanent tubs in our hospital increasing pain relief options for all birthing people. So why do I love being a midwife? Because midwifery matters. The midwifery perspective on pregnancy care, birth care, postpartum care, bereavement care is valuable. It matters to the people we care for. It matters to our healthcare system. It matters for each generation born into the hands of hardworking, caring, compassionate and competent midwives all around the globe. I love being a midwife and I am proud to be part of such an honourable and valuable profession.

Happy International Day of the Midwife to Alison!

I’m Alison(Al) pictured with my hubby Matt. We are from Wales in the UK and have been here in Kingston since 2016. Currently I am at home isolating due to Covid and my awesome colleagues are doing all the work.

It’s International Day of the Midwife and its a profession that should be celebrated and recognized. Sometimes I forget why I chose to be a midwife (or did it chose me) but it’s my clients who remind me why I am one every day. I love the fact that I have great relationships with clients and their families and be a part of an experience that is so empowering to people. I can still remember the fascination of the first birth I witnessed many years ago and that fascination and the wonder of how awesome our bodies are is still with me today. I get to see how truly powerful and strong my clients are everyday. Every birth means something to me as does every family and I am so grateful to be a part of it.
