Christina is a Certified Midwife (German Diploma), and mother of wonderful children who were born at home, here in the Yukon. She immigrated to Canada from Germany in 2000 and has lived, loved, and worked here as a mother, wife and midwife ever since, providing home births and care for women and families throughout the childbearing years in the absence of regulations. It has always been Christina’s goal that all families have access to midwifery care while keeping choices open.
Kristin is originally from northern BC. She has lived in the Yukon since 2003. After working for the Department of Justice for 13 years, she has now refocused her life around staying at home with her kids, running her ``micro-farm`` and managing her business. She co-owns and operates The Gravy Train, a food truck specializing in poutine, with her partner Ron. Kristin was under a midwife's care for both of her pregnancies, planning for a homebirth each time. In the Spring of 2013 she had her first baby in the hospital, with her midwife and family present. In the summer of 2015 she had a water birth in her home at Marsh Lake. Kristin has been the secretary for CMAY since its conception and strongly believes every family should have the option to choose their place of birth and have access to Midwifery care.
