Laurie Zoyiopoulos, CPM started her midwifery journey by offering postpartum care for some of her own midwife’s clients. A few years later, in 1990, Laurie began an apprenticeship with that midwife. She became a Certified Midwife through the Michigan Midwives Association in 1996 (a credential that is no longer offered) and went on to earn her CPM credential in 1998. Laurie owns Faithful Guardians Midwifery Service in Marion, MI and is a board member of the Michigan Midwives Association. She is active in supporting upcoming legislation to license and protect Michigan CPMs. Laurie also does her part to protect the future of midwifery by taking on apprentices in several different geographic areas.
