Appreciation

As a woman with PCOS, getting pregnant can be very difficult. The first time I conceived I required Clomid and it resulted in a full term pregnancy. Unfortunately, I was unable to conceive and carry to term again despite several rounds of Clomid. Lauren provided compassionate support when I required a D&C abortion, and when my body spontaneously aborted at 9 weeks. After years of heartbreak, loss, and a kidney transplant, I wanted to avoid traditional fertility medication if possible as we tried to conceive again. Lauren was instrumental in helping me with my diet, vitamins and herbal supplement choices that helped my body regulate its cycles, create a healthy environment for conception, and ultimately resulted in a full term pregnancy.” — Heather, mom of 2

“Getting an STI diagnosis can be really nerve-wracking and scary. I’ve always been the kind of person who thought they were no big deal, but the emotional fallout for me was tougher than I expected. Lauren’s support for me during that time was incredibly helpful, and I’m so grateful she was able to help me understand the effects it would (and would not!) have on my life going forward.”

“Lauren creates a calming presence in any room she is in.  She presents facts without feeding into fear but instead is always full of compassion and a beacon of light in a world full of so many differing and often harsh opinions on birth and parenting choices.” — Christina, mom of 3

“Lauren has supported me both through a traumatic pregnancy loss and a subsequent early pregnancy with knowledge, kindness, and good humor.  She is invaluable to me, and I would recommend her services to anyone.” — Jamie, mom of 4

“Lauren is one of the most personally knowledgeable individuals that I know when it comes to reproductive matters. To be quite frank, when I have something I will likely need to speak with my gynecologist about, I usually speak with Lauren first. This isn’t just because she can help me move more smoothly through steps I’ll likely need to navigate in my quest for a diagnosis. It’s also because she has helped me understand what it means to advocate for myself while navigating an impersonal medical bureaucracy. That advocacy is a self-replicating gift, such that people in my life who are in crisis and going through serious  medical situations have benefited from what she’s taught me.” — Bridget

“One of the things I love most about Lauren is how her face lights up when she talks about anything on the topic of pregnancy, birth, or babies. She says every piece of it, even the less commonly known, like it’s the greatest thing she’s ever shared with you. I deeply appreciate and value her wisdom. The comfort and care she has given and continues to provide is the gift of strength to move forward with the confidence that someone has my back and that I can succeed.”–Mera
