My name is Maryam Shaikh and I am currently a second-year midwifery student at McMaster University. Pregnancy and birth have been a deep passion of mine since I was 14 years old, and I believe that my memories of when my youngest two brothers were born, and my mother’s postpartum period, are what paved the road to this enthusiasm. I am very excited to be working alongside my preceptors here and I truly hope that I can embody this passion in the care I give to our clients and in my future practice.

In my downtime, I love to relax by spending time with family and friends, reading, writing, cooking/baking, and spending time in the nature. I’ve also recently re-found my absolute love for floral and elegant stickers and have started making my own collection of them.

I am honoured to be working with St. Jacobs Midwives and I want to thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journeys.

I look forward to meeting you.

Maryam
