Laura Koch, CNM-FPA, WHNP-BC is a dedicated pelvic pain specialist serving patients in our Chicago, Illinois office.
Laura is passionate about helping our community of patients because she has seen firsthand many women who have had invisible chronic pain that they have ultimately just accepted as their normal level of functioning. She wants them to know that there are effective treatments available.
In her time taking care of women in her midwifery role, she has frequently encountered women that have been bounced around from one provider to another without any appropriate diagnosis or treatment for their pelvic pain.
For Laura, her mission is listening and believing patients when hearing their experiences in their own bodies, validating that what they feel is accurate, while it may be common to have pelvic pain, it does not need to be their normal.

WHY DID YOU BECOME A NURSE PRACTITIONER?
I became a nurse practitioner because I loved being a person that can be confided in and helping patients learn more about their physical and sexual health and partner with them towards wellness
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB?
The honor of being witness to patients who are empowered, educated and making progress towards their health goals. Helping to dispel shame and helping build confidence in patients to be more present and confident in their own bodies.
