All about Meg, The Moder Midwife
My name is Meghanne Reburn, my friends call me Meg, or Meg the Midwife, likely cause it sounds kinda of catchy. I’m a Registered Midwife who bases herself out of Western Canada. I have an amazing job caring for women and their growing families. I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life.
I've got my BSc in Health and Midwifery (Hons) and have been in full time clinical practice since 2009. In recent years have taken a break from full time midwifery and am doing more remote and international work as well as a few humanitarian missions which fill my heart right up. I'm the co-creator of Baby Making and Beyond AND also worked as a part time midwifery and family medicine clinical instructor at two of the Universities in Calgary and have additional training in holistic nutrition and wellness. Needless to say, I keep pretty busy.
I love my job and the places it's brought me. I've worked in a variety of really cool settings and got myself into all sorts of funky situations. I used to run a small solo practice in Canmore Alberta, where, in the summer, I'd ride my bike from appointment to appointment. I’ve also ridden horses, travelled on snowmobiles, rappelled down rock faces, sprinted down trails and booted across lakes in speedboats all to catch babies and care for mama’s in need.
I'm a mountain girl at heart and I love to get sweaty playing outside. I deeply crave travel and adventure and feel my best when I have lots of time playing in the forests, lakes, mountains and oceans with the people I love. Although my life is taking me all over the world in recent years, I , dream of having small homestead in the mountains with chickens, goats, cats (always cats), ducks with lots of space to roam one day, when the time is right.
I think women are utterly amazing! My clients and their families continually inspire me to keep learning and help others to make positive changes in their lives. Learning to listen to the inner wisdom and guidance of our bodies is something I love to share.
“ All joy in this world comes from wishing others to be happy, and all suffering in this world comes from wanting only oneself to be happy.” Shantideva
This blog and website are all a part of a journey of discovery I’ve been embarking on since 2012. It’s my hope it will give you some insights and reflections into what a balanced life means to you and your growing family. I hope to share information to help you reach your goals and maybe even inspire you to make some new ones!
The fertile years in a woman’s life are amongst the most sacred and I believe that creating new life is a blessing. I'm honoured to help women and their families navigate their road into motherhood, no matter how they get there. I believe that the cornerstone of a healthy parent is a healthy diet and balanced life. If we really are what we eat then don’t we want to give our babies the very best start at being AWESOME healthy little beings?
