My name is Kayla Gagnon (she/her). I’m a third-generation settler with English, French, Dutch, and Scottish heritage. I grew up in Calgary, Alberta on the rolling prairies of the Siksika-Blackfoot territories and have been fortunate to live in many different areas of B.C. over the last decade.
I found my way to midwifery after completing a degree in psychology at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna. I spent a year working in under-resourced communities and schools with immigrant and refugee families before returning to UBC to complete my degree in Midwifery. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of supporting families in Vancouver, Victoria, and Vernon.
I choose to do this work for the privilege of establishing connections with people going through a transformative time in their lives and am dedicated to providing safe, well-informed, and individualized care. My favourite part of midwifery is being able to witness the joy in those first quiet moments after a baby is born when a new family member is being welcomed.
Having moved through so many different areas of B.C. over the last few years, I am thrilled for the opportunity to settle into Prince George and start building a community. When I’m not living the midwife life, you will most likely me find me on the x-country ski trails with my partner and my dogs (Remy & Bruce) or cooking up something tasty in the kitchen.
I look forward to meeting you all!
