The baby will be a citizen as long as you became a citizen before the baby was born.

There is no gender discrimination in Canadian citizenship law. It doesn't matter which parent is a citizen, as long as one is, the baby born outside of Canada will be a Canadian citizen (assuming parent got citizenship through birth in Canada or naturalization).
