Meet Our Team

Karin Sundararajan

Midwife

I graduated from the McMaster Midwifery Education Programme in 2006 and have been a registered midwife in the Mississauga-Halton area for the past 16 years. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies from the University of Waterloo and have worked on numerous Health Reports for the Canadian Institute for Health Information and Statistics Canada.

Midwifery allows me to fulfill my passion for improving access to care and embracing cultural diversity. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, renovating my house, and amateur knitting. I look forward to sharing your incredible journey with you!

Faiza Abdullah

Midwife

Hi, I am Faiza Abdullah

I am grateful for this opportunity to join Hawthorne Midwives as a newly registered midwife to provide support and care to pregnant women as well as their families.

Midwifery is a passion I hold due to the profound impact it leaves in my feeling and thinking. It has shaped me as a person and enhanced my life individually as well as professionally. Having the opportunity to be a part of families through such an important season of their lives is a privilege.

Recently I finished the International Midwifery Pre-Registration Program (IMPP) at Ryerson University as well as my Clerkship in East Mississauga Midwives clinic.

I was born and raised in Syria. I graduated from Damascus University in 2006 with a Medical Degree and in the same year, I started my residency in OB/GYN department for five years. I worked in the Syrian health ministry as an OB/GYN until I left my country as a refugee to Jordan in 2013. In Jordan, I worked in Al Farouk medical center to provide care to pregnant women. As well, I volunteered in Jordan Relief Organization to support refugee women till I moved to Canada in 2016.

When I’m not attending clients, I love spending time with my family, cooking, playing and reading.

Akasha Naraine

Midwife

Akasha Naraine is a registered midwife and a graduate of the Midwifery Education Program from Toronto Metropolitan University. She has lived in the Mississauga/Milton region her entire life and is thrilled to be providing meaningful care to this community. Prior to midwifery, she received a B.A. from McMaster University that focused on Indigenous Studies and Women’s Studies, and it was during her time there that she learned how empowering and healing midwifery can be, not only for the birthing person, but for their families as well. She is a co-founder of the Canadian Black Midwifery Student Fund and raised over $50,000 in 2020. She is passionate about supporting and advocating for marginalized communities and helping them navigate the healthcare system in a safe and respectful way.

In her free time, you will find her playing with her nieces and nephew, playing the piano, or reading. She is so grateful for this humbling opportunity to learn and grow alongside her clients and their families.
