Professional Statement

As a Midwife, it is important to Laura that women feel heard and respected throughout the process of providing care. She understands that pregnancy and health-care can be difficult to navigate at times, and sees herself as an advocate for women and their families. Laura believes that up to date information and effective communication are cornerstones to excellent care. She specializes in prenatal care, birth, postpartum care, contraception, menopausal care, annual exams, and more. Laura has lived on the Eastside most of her life and currently lives in Issaquah with her husband and children. She enjoys being outdoors, hiking, gardening, reading and playing with her kids.
