Hi, I’m Lisa Chappell RN RM . I have been working as a Registered Midwife here at KCM since October 2004. I began my path to Midwifery as a registered nurse, graduating from Fleming College in Peterborough in 1988. Starting as an Obstetrical nurse in labour and delivery in Toronto, I moved to Vancouver in 1992 where I worked at BC Womens’ Hospital in low and high risk obstetrics and fetal medicine. I also worked through the Vancouver General Hospital emergency department as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner for 8 years.
After moving back to the Peterborough area in 2000, I was employed at PRHC birthing suite before finally heading off to England to do my midwifery training, receiving my BSC Honors in Midwifery at Canterbury UK in 2003.
Throughout my career in Women’s Health, my focus and satisfaction comes from guiding people and their families through the profound experiences that test, empower and strengthen us to believe in ourselves and our abilities. I feel that birthing is one of the most powerful of these experiences, and I am honored to be both a witness and a participant.
I am also currently the Lead Midwife at PRHC, representing and promoting our profession at our local hospital in order to give the Peterborough and surrounding community choices in their birthing experiences.
Otherwise I’m gardening, quilting, about to exercise and madly in love with my grandbaby Iris Marie <3
