Shawna Robertson, RMRegistered 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!

Kazuko Hiroe, RMRegistered Midwife
The pursuit of supporting a gentler birth culture began in 2008 as a young mother and active doula while advocating for access to midwifery services in the Sea to Sky Corridor..
Kazuko’s (also known by her clients as ‘Kaz’) practice is rooted in client-centered and collaborative care. It is continually evolving based on the best available evidence, client circumstances, and her own personal growth as a midwife. Kaz supports autonomy and strives to build mutually respectful and trusting partnerships.
After graduating from the UBC Midwifery program, she practiced at Strathcona Midwifery Collective in East Vancouver. The team focused on equitable care for underserved populations including Indigenous, 2SLGBTQ+ and sanctuary clients. She also attended a high volume of home births. Kaz is committed to the continuation of that work and outreach. Kaz is thrilled to now offer supported solo midwifery care at Roots Community Midwives in Squamish, where she has raised her family and called home over the past 18 years.
