Shawna Robertson, RM

Registered Midwife

Shawna is so thrilled to be coming to Squamish to live and practice midwifery with Roots Community Midwives!

Her midwifery journey began after she experienced the incredible care midwives provided during her third pregnancy. Although she was already two years into a nursing degree in a small town on Vancouver Island, she was determined to apply to UBC Midwifery in hopes of pursuing this calling and was fortunate to have her family’s unwavering support to follow her dreams.

During her 4 years in the midwifery program, she was privileged to meet and care for many diverse families. She feels very fortunate to have learned from some of the most dedicated, passionate and skilled midwives, obstetricians and numerous other practitioners working in the birthing community in the lower mainland during this time.

Shawna is an easy going, loving and hard working midwife. She strives to provide safe, informed, evidence-based care that puts families in the ‘driver’s seat’ as the experts in their own decision-making. She believes the midwife-client relationship is so important to an empowering experience and her goal is to provide safe, inclusive and personalized care that supports the journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond!
