Madelyn is a senior year midwifery student at McMaster University and is completing her final midwifery placements at St. Jacobs Midwives. Previously she completed placements in Hamilton, but is looking forward to exploring the Waterloo area as she begins her senior year.

She is initially from Nova Scotia and came to Ontario to start the midwifery program. Madelyn grew up on a farm in a small town and fell in love with the idea of pursuing midwifery after seeing a home birth for the first time. It was through this experience that she discovered her passion for client-led care and helping to empower people throughout their pregnancies.  She is excited to be a part of the St. Jacobs Midwives team and a part of your family’s journey.
