Lauren Gordon was born and raised in sunny South Florida. During her Freshman year of college at Florida State University, she took a passionate interest in becoming a Nurse Practitioner. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing, she accepted a position as a nurse on a Cardiac and Stroke unit at Broward Health Medical Center. She moved to Washington, D.C. in 2009 to attend graduate school at Georgetown University and received her Master’s degree in Midwifery. Lauren is dual certified as a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) and a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) and has never looked back!
Lauren’s love for her profession stems from a desire to care for women throughout all stages of their reproductive life. She feels honored and privileged to see patients year after year. This continuity of care helps her to assess their needs as they transition from first learning about their cycles, to discussing birth control, then considering pregnancy, and the many stages and changes that follow.
With three small children at home, Lauren’s days are busy and passionate and this carries into her practice of medicine. She strives to make her patients feel comfortable with the healthcare setting at Bloom Ob/Gyn and she values their time and honesty. She treats her patients with openness and this helps build strong relationships. She values educating her patients. This is evident through her work with Stork Childbirth Education, Inc., a childbirth education company that she co-founded with her friend and colleague Flynn. When Lauren has spare time (Ha!) she loves to be outside with her family to grill during the warmer months, take a walk, read a good book, or enjoy coffee with a friend at a new coffee shop.
