Jessica Astle is an internationally educated midwife who has recently relocated to sunny and beautiful Kamloops! Jessica grew up in the small town of Nelson, BC before moving to Melbourne, Australia with her husband in 2008. It was in Australia that Jessica pursued her passion for midwifery and obtained her Bachelor of Midwifery degree. After completing her studies, Jessica worked in a tertiary Women & Children’s hospital as a registered midwife; caring for both high and low risk women and their babies. This proved to be a fantastic experience and helped to consolidate her midwifery skills and develop her own midwifery philosophy. She has since successfully completed the internationally educated midwifery bridging program offered through UBC and is now a registered midwife in BC.
Jessica is passionate about women’s health and considers midwifery to be a fundamental component of building strong, healthy, thriving families and communities. She maintains a calm and gentle approach throughout her care and considers it a privilege to work with women and their families during the momentous and significant journey to motherhood. Jessica has recently become a proud mama to her own little one and she looks forward to raising and growing her family here in Kamloops. She is thrilled to be practising in this wonderful community and working with the women and families in her care.
