My name is Tshengi Ndlovu, and I am a mother of three. Prior to moving to Canada, I lived in London, England where I trained and worked briefly as a Registered General Nurse. I gained a Midwifery Degree in 1997 (BSc Honours) from Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, England.
As a midwife in London, I had various roles and gained experience in all areas of midwifery care. I practised as a midwife for 12 years before moving to Canada in 2010. I completed the Multi-Jurisdictional Midwifery Bridging Programme (MMBP) in March 2013. I have been working in the Tri-Cities since November 2013.
I am a mother of 3 who first became interested in midwifery care through my experiences having children. I decided to become a midwife when my youngest entered school and I have been a Registered Midwife since 2016. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery from UBC. Prior to becoming a midwife, I worked as a doula and childbirth educator, and I loved my role as a teacher. I always felt inspired and motivated by the energy in the classes I taught, but what pleased me most was the relationship I was able to build with clients. This is without a doubt my favourite part of midwifery – getting to know you and your families. The babies are a sweet added bonus!
