Lincoln Community Midwives is a teaching practice for the Bachelor of Health Sciences Midwifery Education Program (McMaster and Toronto Metropolitan Universities). The Midwifery Education Program has developed a model of education that emphasizes the importance of the student developing continuous relationship with the client and their family. You can anticipate meeting a student several times prenatally, at your birth and through the postpartum period. This allows clients to build relationship with the student midwife.
Student midwives are involved equivalent to their level of education, i.e., senior midwifery students will take on a more primary role in your care. In order to grow the profession, we ask our clients to involve students in all aspects of their care that is of course appropriate to the knowledge and skills of the student. If you have any concerns we ask you bring this to the attention of your midwife. We appreciate your participation in student learning.
I am currently in my final year of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University. Prior to this program, I completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto. Being born at home, by midwives, I am excited and proud to be joining this group to welcome future babies into the world, the way I was welcomed. I have always been passionate about primary care and empowering expectant clients which comprises the Midwifery model of care.
My partner and I moved to Beamsville recently and are very excited to join this welcoming community. When I am not working or studying, you can find me knitting, biking, and experimenting with new recipes.
Kai will be working primarily on Team Blue, starting in May 2023.
