Sophie Ahmad will be with St. Jacobs Midwives for her first midwifery placement. She will be learning under the guidance of Team 1 from January 4, 2022 until April 28, 2022. Her background is in biology. She graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2020 with an Honours Bachelor of Science with Specialization in Biology and a focus on animal physiology before starting the midwifery program at McMaster University. Sophie is dedicated to learning everything she can about midwifery care and is very excited to begin her journey in a health profession that strives to ensure client-centered care and values listening, respect, and empathy for all. Sophie is grateful to be invited to be a part of your care, and hopes that she gets the chance to meet many of you throughout her placement.
