Susan HowlettLocation : Bridgenorth, Ontario
Nominated By : Kerry Bebee
Susan Howlett is a registered midwife who has served the Peterborough area for over 20 years! She inspires me by her long history of serving pregnant and birthing people by supporting their choices throughout pregnancy, labour and birth and afterwards whether this be at home, birth clinic, or in hospital. She does this in a strongly committed, caring, and safe, evidence-based way. Even through Covid 19,she has persisted, adopting PPE and safe contact practices so that clients can be supported to have the best birth possible in their own community. This picture is a picture of Susan in PPE about to support a client who is undergoing a c-section for her birth at PRHC. Midwives support women at home or hospital, in low risk or in higher risk situations (as part of a medical team), for all kinds of births and I admire Susan‘s commitment to exactly this goal over many, many fulfilling years!
