Cat De Cent, RM

Registered Midwife

Cat was born into the hands of midwives in Penzance, England and has been interested in midwifery ever since. After apprenticing at a birthing center in El Paso, Texas, she worked as a second birth attendant in Kingston, Ontario before deciding to pursue her Bachelor in Health Sciences in Midwifery at Ryerson University.

After graduation, she moved to Abbotsford, BC and practiced with the Valley Midwifery Group before relocating to Vancouver Island to spend more time with her daughter and explore the area. After catching many Island babies and working in the reforestation industry as a tree planting cook, life is taking her off the Island again.

Cat began working with the diverse and wonderful population of Vancouver and then love brought her to Squamish where she calls Brackendale home. Cat is a lover of life,  birth and babies and  is very excited to meet you.

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!
