The AOM’s Indigenous Midwifery team recently visited our Midwifery Team here at Kenhte:ke Midwives Clinic, as one of the first groups to receive funding under the new Indigenous Midwifery Program at the Ministry of Health last year.

Tamara Cascagnette, Ellen Blais, and Lesley Kimewon joined the Staff at Kenhte:ke Midwives for lunch and were able to tour our beautiful clinic space and discuss community Midwifery needs.

During the visit, our team presented AOM staff with a photo plaque of beautiful, hand carved, Mohawk cradle boards.
