 Midwifery

Laura Wood, Registered Midwife, BSN

I believe midwifery is about creating trusting relationships, providing evidence based care, facilitating informed choice, and supporting the normalcy of birth. I love being a midwife, and working with families on their journeys to becoming parents is a privilege I feel honoured to hold.

 

Along my path to midwifery, I completed a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Alberta, studying Psychology and Indigenous Studies, trained as a doula, worked as a sexual health educator, and completed a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2009. I worked for several years at BC Women’s Hospital as a perinatal registered nurse, before continuing my dream of becoming a midwife and enrolling at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario.

 

I completed my Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery with honours in 2014. Upon graduation, I practiced midwifery in Mississauga for several years, where I had the privilege of working with many families new to Canada, and developed a deep appreciation of the rewards of working with people from different social, economic and cultural backgrounds. In 2018, I moved back to Vancouver, filling in at several different practices, and am thrilled to be joining Bloom.

 

I truly value the joys, challenges and diverse experiences of midwifery. I look forward to meeting you and being part of your care!
