Jem Deguire

I am so grateful for the gift of joining you and the birth work communities along Lake Erie this year!

I graduated from McMaster University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree in Midwifery and since then have been gaining wisdom through experiences with babies, birthing people, their supports and my fellow colleagues. I spent the first six years of practice working primarily in Southern Ontario and the last decade doing locum midwifery work in Nunavik. In late 2017 I moved onto Wolastoq land in New Brunswick to pivot my lifestyle toward off grid homesteading and self-sufficiency in a small community. I completed a locum with Midwives of East Erie in 2022 and am excited to continue to spend some time in the Great Lake Area with my partner and two little girls – Maple and Indie.

I have a strong commitment to holding space for folx to navigate and experience their unique journey into parenthood. I equally value supporting my colleagues in their irreplaceable and important work as midwives. I am working toward trauma informed, anti-racist and safer care. I am a Birthing From Within Mentor in training.

I am excited to join you on your personal journey of growth and transformation.
