My name is Laura Coombs. My interest in midwifery began as a child when I was present for the birth of my brother. It made a lasting impression on me – now I have the honour of being a midwife myself. I have a degree in biology from Mount Allison University. I completed my midwifery training at Ryerson and graduated with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery in 2011. I was a student at West End Midwives during my training and have been working at the practice as a Registered Midwife ever since I graduated.
