Our Team Enviroment

About

Cheam Midwifery is structured as a Team Enviroment. Your team of midwives will consist of either two or three midwives, never more than that. Throughout your pregnancy you will get a chance to meet each midwife on your team.  

 

Your Midwives

Joy Allan RM

Non-Practicing

My journey into midwifery began with my pregnancy and birth of my first daughter, Desiree, in October 1995.  I was a young teenage mother and I didn't know anything about pregnancy or childbirth.  However, everything I experience during my pregnancy left me feeling amazed and inspired

I gave birth to my second daughter, Kyla, in December 1999 and my third daughter, Brianna, in July 2002.  Shortly after Brianna's birth I became involved with the breastfeeding support group La Leche League (LLL) and became a certified LLL leader in 2003. 

In 2004, I became a certified DONA Doula and began volunteering with a Doula Group supporting teen mothers who would have otherwise been alone for their births.

In 2005, I started training at McMaster University in the Midwifery Education Program.  I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery and started working as a Registered Midwife in Ontario.

In 2010, my family and I moved across the country to Abbotsford, BC.  In 2011, I opened Chilliwack's first Midwifery practice, Cheam Midwifery.

I continue to be passionate and in awe of everything related to the childbearing years of a woman's life. I am so fortunate to work in a profession that inspires me everyday.  It is a great honour to walk along side women at such a pivotal point in their lives.

When I am not catching babies you can find me hanging out with my hubby, James, and our three daughters.  We love to spend time together snowboarding, wake boarding, water skiing and hiking. I also practice yoga daily.
