I am Dr. Lauren Swann and have been working with the Abbotsford Maternity Group since 2012, initially as a locum, and now formally joining the team as of August 2020.
I was raised on Vancouver Island and completed my undergraduate and medical school training at the University of British Columbia.
I am passionate about providing thoughtful, patient-centred care wherever I find myself in the world – from rural Uganda, where I lived with my family and worked as a family physician for 6 ½ years, to the bustling metropolis of Abbotsford. I am thankful for the privilege to walk alongside new and expectant moms, providing advice and encouragement along the way.
When not at work, my time is spent wrangling my rather wild toddler (motherhood is humbling!), connecting with my school-aged daughter and enjoying coffee, good food, camping and travel together as a family.
