Esther Lindokken SWM3

    I am so excited to be joining Semiahmoo Midwives for my third year placement! I feel deep gratitude to the families who have allowed me to be a part of their journey in pregnancy, birth, and beyond, as well as to the families I will meet this year. Being with folks through this dynamic and beautiful time truly fills my heart.

    I am from Vancouver Island, and have an undergraduate degree in philosophy. My path to midwifery was paved by my deep passion for creating safe and inclusive spaces for birthing folks, with a focus on informed consent. While my previous degree allowed me to wrap my head around these concepts, my midwifery education has given me the chance to apply them.

    My previous placements have been in North Vancouver and Surrey, where I worked with several families from whom I’ve learned and grown in ways I had not imagined. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow alongside all the families at this practice!
