I completed my Bachelor of Midwifery Degree at Mount Royal University in Calgary. I was accepted into the midwifery program immediately after completing my high school education. I am originally from Surrey, BC where I grew up prior to moving to Alberta for post secondary school. I am of Indo-Canadian descent and am fluent in Punjabi and English.

 

As a child, I always knew that I wanted to work in the field of medicine and had a specific interest in women’s health. When I was in grade 11, I was given the opportunity to go to Ottawa for a week and participate in a program called “Encounters with Canada” filled with workshops focussed on medicine and health. It was there that the seed of midwifery was planted in my mind. I was drawn to a workshop titled “baby catching” run by the local midwives, and from that moment moving forward I knew that midwifery was the path for me.

 

I am grateful to all of the families who have welcomed me into being a part of their beautiful and unique birthing experiences. Every birth has taught me invaluable life lessons of strength, empowerment, resilience, love, and unity. I am someone who is passionate about advocating for my clients to have their voices heard. I want to ensure that every individual’s birth experience is centered around their own values and decisions.

 

I hope to someday provide midwifery services to marginalized populations of women in underprivileged communities across the globe. I love to travel and have had Midwifery placements in Calgary, Saskatoon, Fort Qu’Appelle, Medicine Hat, and Edmonton. 

I look forward to working with you through this time of transition and new beginnings!

I knew that I wanted to be a birth worker after the first birth that I attended as a doula back in 2008. I graduated from the Midwifery Education Program at Laurentian University in 2015, and have been working as a full-time midwife ever since.

I was initially drawn to midwifery because of the sheer magic and power of witnessing birth, but what has kept me in the profession has been my growing outrage for how birthing people are grossly treated in the mainstream medical system. Through education, informed choice decision making, advocacy, (and love!) I hope that through doing this work, I can help mitigate the harm and inequities that birthing people often have to navigate within the current system of obstetrics.

Since graduating, I’ve practiced in BC, Nova Scotia, Nunavut and finally am now happy to call Edmonton home where I’ve been working since 2018. When not catching babies you will find me in my garden, cooking up something scrumptious in my kitchen or plunking around on my antique upright piano!

I am humbled to be able to do this work and to be invited to serve as a friend and guide through such an immensely intimate and transformative journey as pregnancy and birth. I look forward to meeting you and your family!
