Dr. Stephanie Roman
I am fortunate to have joined the wonderful team at Partners in Pregnancy Clinic. The unique interdisciplinary care model and wonderful group of women working at PIPC are what drew me to Peterborough.
I grew up mainly in Kingston, Ontario as the eldest of four
children. I completed medical school at the University of Ottawa in 2012 where I developed a passion for caring for families, leading me to choose a residency in Family Medicine at Queen's University in Kingston. I pursued an additional year of training at Queen's in the Women's Health program. I focused especially on obstetrics and newborn care, including breastfeeding support in Kingston and Toronto's Newman Breastfeeding clinic. I was also able to develop skills in sexual health, contraception and working with marginalized inner city and LGTBQ populations.
Since coming to Peterborough, I've enjoyed working with the Partners in Pregnancy Clinic, the Sexual Health Clinic and providing general family practice and transgender care with Trent Student Health Services. I'm passionate about delivering babies and caring for families, and also improving access to heath care for LGTBQ populations. In my spare time, I sit on committees working to create a culture of equity and inclusivity for individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy hiking, yoga, music, and spending time with my partner and family. I have been a choral singer since age ten and was happy to find a place in the Peterborough Singers. With great bike trails, access to waterways, and summer music festivals, we are enjoying exploring our new home! I look forward to meeting you.
