Plum is Pleased to Welcome Laya Bourguignon, RM to Our Team

Plum is pleased to welcome Laya Bourguignon, RM to our team. She will be covering for Cat de Cent, RM while she is on leave.

My path toward midwifery began with my being present for the birth of my little sister when I was six years old. From that day on, I knew that I would someday be involved with maternity care.

In my early twenties, I owned and operated a massage clinic in Powell River where I began working increasingly with pregnant women and at times being asked to attend their births as a support person. In 2007 I enrolled in the Women’s Studies program at North Island College and moved to Comox where I opened a birthing home for women and their families who had to leave their communities to access midwifery care. During this time I trained as a doula and breastfeeding counsellor, and had the opportunity to work alongside midwives for the first time which only affirmed that midwifery was the path I wanted to be on.

During my training in the UBC Midwifery Program, I studied under midwives in: Vancouver, Nelson, Uganda and Nanaimo, where I continued on working as a registered midwife after graduation.
It is such a great pleasure to be back in the Comox Valley and to be joining the team at Plum. I look forward to meeting all of the families who come into our care and to being a part of this wonderful community!
