Jill Parsons, Midwife
My name is Jill Parsons.
I am a settler of European descent. I have lived in British Columbia and Ontario with my family, which includes members of the Lac Seul, Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Cheslatta T'En Nations. I am a biology nerd who also loves crafting.
I graduated from the Ryerson Midwifery Education Program in 2013 and have worked as a midwife in Toronto ever since. I am very excited to be joining Seventh Generation Midwives of Toronto and continuing to learn to provide culturally safe care to Toronto families. Prior to becoming a midwife I worked in the fields of HIV research and research ethics.
I have three children and have myself been a grateful recipient of midwifery care. I know what a transformative experience childbirth can be for a family. I am pleased to be able to offer this experience to other families.
