Hi I’m Clare. I am an Ontario-local that fell in love with the west coast while living in San Francisco. After graduating from the McMaster Midwifery Program I came west and made my home in East Vancouver. I have an honours degree in Political Science from McMaster University and a postgraduate certificate in Public Relations but knew for a long time that my heart was with the art and science of midwifery practice. I grew up on a horse farm and as long as I can remember I have been around birth. In many ways, I intuitively learned how to be a midwife as a child helping horses birth their foals!
I believe strongly in informed choice and in midwives’ ability to facilitate empowering experiences for families. I genuinely love the process of getting to know my clients and their families and building a trusting and safe relationship throughout their care. People will always remember the way they are treated on the day their child is born and it is a privilege to support clients and their families throughout this time.
When I’m not working as a midwife you are likely to find me scoping out new restaurants and cafes around the city, browsing interior design blogs, hiking with my pup or editing photos and film.
I felt so completely cared for. My birth experience was beautiful. The post-partum care made mourn the switch to a family doctor. Thank you!
