Bounmy Inthavong is a graduate from the McMaster Midwifery Program. Her individualized approach to care ensures a safe and supportive environment for women and their families. Prior to joining the Kawartha Community Midwives, Bounmy practiced in Waterloo Region and Windsor-Essex County. She is excited to be a part of the Kawartha Community Midwives' team until the end of July.
Bounmy and her family immigrated to Canada as refugees from Laos. Her passion for women’s health began at an early age and was solidified after going on a youth exchange to South Africa. She was introduced to midwifery during a university exchange in England which has led her into a profession that she feels fortunate to call her career. These various life events and experiences abroad have cultivated a vested interest in working with marginalized and diverse populations.
Prior to midwifery Bounmy completed her joint Bachelor of Science in Biology and Geography from the University of Waterloo. Bounmy has a passion for traveling and enjoys testing her culinary pallet along the way. Outside of midwifery, you will find Bounmy hanging off of rock faces, trekking the back country or baking a cake.
