Our Students

One of the values of Hawthorne Midwives is to be a place of learning and growth. For this reason we strive to include student midwives in your care as much as possible. We work with the Midwifery Education Program, where students come to do their placements in our clinic. Students work at different levels depending on where they are at in their degree. While it is not compulsory to have students involved in your care, we would encourage you to speak to your midwife about students, as they can add a lot of value to your experience.

Check back to this page for upcoming student’s placed with us.

Dario Alvarez


Hi, my name is Dario Alvarez. I am currently in the International Midwifery Pre-registration Program (IMPP) at Ryerson University. I am happily looking forward to my clerkship placement with all of you at Hawthorne Midwives.

I am excited and blessed to join the wonderful team at Hawthorne Midwives and give the best of me to guide with love and respect for all through pregnancy. Thank you for giving me this amazing opportunity.

I was born and raised in Peru. I graduated in 2008 with a Bachelors in Midwifery in Peru. I practiced as a professional midwife in different settings from hospitals to private clinics and walk-in clinics “postas” in rural and isolated sites from 2008 to 2017. I also worked in dynamic, grassroots health promotion and prevention teams, in the streets and markets gathering lab samples of vulnerable populations. I am grateful to join the team at Hawthorne and work together, side by side. Thank you.

Sanna Padela


Originally from Rochester, NY, Sanna Padela is a second-year student at McMaster University’s Midwifery Education Programme. She holds a Bachelors degree from the University at Buffalo and a Master’s degree in Physiology from the University of Toronto. Always interested in female healthcare, she began to pursue a career as a Lactation Consultant and was led to midwifery.

As a homeschooling mother of four, she enjoys cooking (and eating!) spicy food, volunteering in the community with her kids, and hiking in the Escarpment.

Please note that there is currently a large demand for midwifery services in Milton and North West Mississauga, and as a result, we cannot accept every person who makes a request for care. Spots at our clinic fill up very quickly, so we recommend that you fill out the intake form as early as possible in your pregnancy. However, we do accept applications for care at any stage of pregnancy.
