CAT DECENT, RM
Hi there! My name is Cat and it is my great pleasure to once again be catching babies in the Comox Valley with Cedar House Midwives.
Midwifery has truly been a mainstay of my life since the very start. I was born in a midwifery led birthing centered in Penzance England, had midwives for the birth of my daughter Merrick and trained first in a birthing centre in Texas then graduated with a Bachelor of Health Sciences, Midwifery degree from Ryerson University.
I am a passionate advocate for women’s health care and have worked both in large urban centres on the lower mainland and rural practices here and in Squamish.
I have also had the honour to work in Puvunituk and Salluit, Quebec as support for Inuit Midwives and Students who maintain traditional and cultural birthing practices in the north, and more recently in Yemen.
I currently call Cumberland home and look forward to meeting you all.
