Loraina Birch, B.HSc. R.M.

Loraina is a graduate of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University, and was delighted to be joining Thames Valley Midwives in September of 2017.

Loraina grew up in nearby Perth County and is very happy to now be making a home in London. Before becoming a midwife, she completed a degree in music in Toronto. Her path to midwifery began while supporting a close friend through a difficult pregnancy. Realizing she wanted to serve families during the transformations of pregnancy and birth, she worked first as a doula, volunteering with local women in need of labour support, then completed her degree in midwifery. She is excited for the opportunity to provide care to people in the London area and looks forward to meeting you!
