Savannah Chapman, RM

Midwifery is often referred to as a calling and I have personally felt this to be true! My mother chose midwifery care prior to regulation in Ontario and my aunt is a doula. I grew up with a worldview of birth as a natural and empowering part of life. My interest in reproductive health grew as I connected with various healthcare professionals through my father’s involvement with Doctors Without Borders. After reading Spiritual Midwifery I knew I wanted to be a part of changing our birth culture. I spent my childhood in West Africa and Europe before returning to Canada and attending an arts high school in Toronto majoring in theatre.

I was accepted into the midwifery education program at McMaster University in 2009 and studied with midwives, nurses and obstetricians throughout Ontario. A highlight of my degree was an international placement in a low resourced maternity centre in Toamasina, Madagascar. This experience sparked an interest in learning about the diverse array of birth cultures and practices around the world.

Since graduating in 2013 I have worked in the semi-rural Durham region and downtown Toronto including the Toronto Birth Centre. I have most recently fallen in love with Vancouver and have worked in the downtown East side and at the Urban Native Youth Association.

I love working with Dawn and Amy with whom I share a similar philosophy of holistic midwifery care.  Informed choice is one of the key aspects of midwifery care, which means that I will share my knowledge and support your choices. I strive to help clients to have positive and empowering experiences and am privileged to be a small part of this incredible journey.

I love to travel, play ultimate frisbee, and spend time outdoors with my partner hiking and skiing. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you and your families over the coming year!

 

Testimonials

My second pregnancy was very stressful and needed a fair bit of medical intervention and support. My midwives at Pomegranate were incredibly supportive, patient and helpful. They encouraged and supported my desire to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) by providing with helpful information to help me make informed decisions about my pregnancy. When I needed a consultation with an OB, they worked well with him and were very professional. I had planned a home birth, but needed to transfer to the hospital and the midwife ensured that I was cared for and had the best experience possible, in spite of the change of plans. I was able to have a medication-free VBAC and it was amazing. They provided great post-partum support and breastfeeding assistance. I highly recommend them.
