hello, I'm

Tina Henry RM

Midwifery has been a passion and goal of mine since I had the benefit of receiving midwifery care with my second and third babies. I knew that midwifery was an all or nothing commitment, so my journey to where I am today was a long and scenic road of learning as I raised my babies.

I am married and have three children that keep me entertained most days and definitely on my toes! I have lived in the Red Deer area for most of my life, and currently live on a hobby farm with my family 20 minutes east of Red Deer. 

The first baby step in my journey towards midwifery began after completing my doula training in 2000. I had already given birth to my first son, and knew that there had to be a better way than the medical procedure that had I had just experienced. My journey was slow and tentative, but the birth of my second son at home in the water healed me and completed me in ways I could never have thought possible. My life was forever changed with the knowledge that I could question, and ultimately make choices that were best for my family and I. My passion for caring for women, and ultimately midwifery took over and I spent the next 11 years planning for the day that I could pursue midwifery education.

I have attended dozens of women as a doula, supported nearly as many women through their breastfeeding journeys, and began the Bachelor of Science Nursing program before getting the great news that I had been accepted in Mount Royal University’s Bachelor of Midwifery program! Without a backwards glance, I left the nursing program and transferred to the midwifery program at Mount Royal.

My hobbies are reading, camping, playing the piano, and enjoying life’s teaching moments with my children. Aside from being a midwife, I am also part owner of an environmentally friendly cleaning company that services both the commercial and residential sector. My life is full, but oh so enjoyable! 

I feel blessed to be living my dream and supporting women in achieving the birth they desire. I am so thankful to be a part of the team of midwives at Prairie Midwives. As a group, we are committed to empowering women and their families as they grow. I look forward to being a part of your pregnancy, birth and early parenting experience!
