Laura Parizeau – Associate

Hello!

My name is Laura Parizeau, and am I excited to be one of the newest members of the Talbot Creek Midwives! Prior to beginning my midwifery studies, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies through the University of Waterloo co-op program. As a result, I have a range of work experience in the health care field, from Recreational Coordinator at a small rural hospital (I shared an office with the Chaplain and took care of the fish tank) to Region Facilitator at the London Hospitals (I was involved in many interesting projects, including Digital Imaging and the SWO Perinatal Partnership). Midwifery is the profession which allows me to bring all of my experiences and interests together (well, maybe not all – no office fish yet!) and being a midwife is fantastic.

I spent the first 19 years of my life in the city of Sarnia, and the next ten years in nine different cities (including at least 18 moves at last count). My family is very important to me (not just because they are great at hauling my stuff all over Ontario) and I am thrilled to have moved so much closer to them. My partner Ryan is a nurse at Parkwood, and along with our grumpy cat Gracie, we have started to make St. Thomas feel like home. I look forward to meeting you!
