Try to make the world a better place
HI! I'm Laurie. I work as a doula and childbirth educator and am also a midwife assistant in a birthing center in Quebec, Canada. I've already travelled to many places and am always curious to learn more about other cultures and ways to live. I also love sewing, knitting, singing, dancing and having a good time with friends.
I am open-minded and mature and love to try and discover new things!
You never know when you're going to die, so live your life as much as you can!! If there's something you're good at or you're interested in, how odd can it be, don't hesitate and do it! There is nothing better than travelling to learn new things, to have new experiences, and to meet new people!
I also strive to make the world a better place to be born in, and hope that every child will be able to come into the world in a loving and respectful manner, and will be recognised for who they really are.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I discovered CS a few years ago when travelling to the UK and Ireland.
I travel and love to meet new people through CS.
I am also open to hosting, but know that I live far in the country, about a 2 hour bus ride from Montreal. But if you're willing to come all the way over here, I will be happy to host you and show you around!
All great experiences in UK and Ireland!
Life, Having fun, Movies, Sewing, Music (jazz, Swing, Blues, Broadway, Classical, World...), reading, singing, dancing, Anything related to birth and my field of work, eating and cooking, discovering new cultures and new people and travelling (and much more)!
Music, Movies, and Books
Golden age musicals (Wizard of OZ, Singing In The Rain, My Fair Lady, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Presenting Lily Mars, Babes in Arms, Swing Time, etc, etc, etc) I also love period films, like Pride and Prejudice, Young Victoria and Titanic. I also find Bengali films very entertaining. Apart from that, I also love any good movie like Slumdog Millionnaire or American Beauty, and have a soft spot fot good documentaries. As for music, I love pretty much any kind, (except rap, R'nB, pop and death metal). And books? Anything that's entertaining, from Jane Austen to J.K. Rowling, and anything that can make me laugh, as well as informative books on subjects I'm interested in.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have the chance to witness babies being born and help the mothers in the process. Among all the travels and exciting things I have done, it is the most magical thing in my eyes.
Teach, Learn, Share
Well, for starters, I am a really good seamstress, she could always share a few tricks, I also might go off about childbirth as I am very passionnate about my work, don't hesitate to ask me questions on the subject!
If you want to learn french too, I could teach you some words!
I am always open to learn new things, and exchange knowledge.
