About Laura Gilroy, MD

I am a chief resident in Ob-Gyn at a busy community hospital in Connecticut. My interests include Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Ob Critical Care, and Ultrasound. I have done research around quality improvement in maternal care, and gestational diabetes. I’m hoping to go into fellowship in MFM to further hone my skills and expertise in caring for moms and their babies. In my spare time I love to play tennis, do yoga, run, cook, and enjoy the outdoors. I also find writing to be an essential outlet for both my ideas and creativity!
