Mojgan Nadafi’s Biography
Growing up in Iran as the second eldest of six children, I was immersed in the world of pregnancy and babies at a young age through the births of my siblings. My great interest in midwifery was sparked when I was only 9 years old and my mom had her fourth baby at an exciting home birth and I got to be a part of it. The whole experience made me so curious and passionate about women’s health, pregnancy, birth and babies.
As soon as I finished high school, I passed the National midwifery exam in Iran and was accepted to midwifery program in Shiraz University. I received my Bachelor’s of midwifery in 1996 and Master’s of midwifery in 2003.
As a Midwife in South of Iran From 1996-2006, I supported thousands of women throughout their labours, births, and immediate postpartum periods at high volume birth centers and hospitals. I feel deeply humbled by how pregnancy and births can be unique to every woman and family. I also enjoyed teaching midwifery and nursing students as well as engaging in research in women’s health while in Iran.
In 2006, I moved to Toronto to join my husband and in 2007, I was accepted to the International Midwifery Pre-registration Program (IMPP) at Ryerson University. Since 2008 after completing IMPP, I have had fantastic opportunities to work as Registered Midwife in Toronto as well as London, Ontario and now in Surrey, BC.
Working as a midwife for 20 years in several midwifery practice models, both collaborative and solo, urban and rural, birth centers, hospital and home births, I feel incredibly privileged to be doing midwifery care. I cannot think of any other job that would be as satisfying and fulfilling to my spirit.
I feel blessed to support, educate, and empower families through the journey of pregnancy and birth. I have always had a great passion for teaching, and I feel honoured to work as a clinical instructor to UBC Midwifery students.
I live in Surrey with my husband and our 2 children. When I am not busy with midwifery care, I love spending time with my family and friends, playing with my kids, listening to music, dancing and walking.
