Natalie Avery completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery at McMaster University in Ontario. During her training, Natalie had the opportunity of a clinical placement with midwives here in BC and she fell in love with mountains. In 2013 Natalie made the decision to relocate to British Columbia to continue this love affair!
Natalie also completed a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biology at Queen’s University prior to beginning her training as a midwife. During her time at Queen’s she became interested in social justice and feminism and there she was introduced to the midwifery profession. Natalie was attracted to the midwifery model of care and feels lucky to have found such a wonderful blend of art and science. She is happy to have the opportunity to connect with and support women and their families throughout their journeys.
Natalie is known for her gentle and caring presence and she is a passionate advocate for the women under her care. She believes that crossing the threshold to motherhood is a profound experience that deserves space and respect. When Natalie is not busy with midwifery she enjoys outdoor music festivals, cycling and cross-country skiing.
