Founder and Executive Director and Founder of Canadian Premature Babies Foundation-Fondation pour Bébés Prématurés Canadiens
Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada
As founder of the CPBF-FBPC in 2012 and mother of preterm twins, Katharina Staub’s goal is to increase public awareness about prematurity and ensure that parents of preterm infants get the education, care, and support they need. She has numerous connections with parent organizations across Canada and internationally, and has been instrumental in building a cohesive national platform for parent advocacy around Preterm Birth in Canada.
Becoming the parent of now 6 year old twins, born at 27 weeks gestation in Edmonton, Alberta, left Katharina convinced that there needed to be an increase in public awareness about prematurity and better information and education of families during pregnancy and long term consequences of prematurity.
Katharina’s professional training is in language education. She holds a B. Ed. from the University of Alberta in Edmonton and a B.A. in Primary Education from the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Katharina has worked in an international setting for many years and has expertise in the areas of international recruitment and communications. She speaks German, French and English.
