Our Team

Our team of practitioners operates as a collective, with each practitioner functioning as an independent business, while simultaneously collaborating with one another to provide the best in integrative holistic care to our clients and patients. This model allows for referrals and integration of care when appropriate, while allowing each individual to maintain autonomy in their business and speciality. Each team member is carefully selected and approved by founder, Laura Erlich.


Laura Erlich, LAc, FABORM; founder and clinic director

From gynecology and women's health to the childbearing cycle, motherhood and into peri/menopause, Laura consults and successfully treats patients in her West Los Angeles center and oversees treatment and programming at Mother Nurture Wellness.

Beginning her studies in traditional Chinese medicine, Laura’s focus has held steady on the specialty of women’s health, with an emphasis in fertility and obstetric care. This interest formed from her longstanding career, when she supported women as a birth doula and a pre and postnatal massage therapist.

After graduating summa cum laude from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine, Laura founded a progressive holistic medicine practice in Southern California, specializing in gynecology, infertility, IVF support, conscious conception and prenatal care. Now, with over two decades experience as a leading practitioner in the Los Angeles birthing community, she continues to guide women to optimal wellness in her roles as an acupuncturist, herbalist, birth doula, writer, instructor, mentor and group leader.

Erin Giugno, green beauty skin stylist

Suffering from acne in her early twenties, Erin was desperate to find a cure.  When traditional methods of prescription medications and harsh treatments didn’t bring the desired results, she decided to embark on a fresh start. Connecting to her intuition and commitment for a clean beauty cure, she found gentler replacements to enhance her sensitive skin. This began an obsession with finding products for every part of her routine: skin care, body care, makeup, and hair products. Since then, she’s become the go-to resource for green beauty styling, offering advice for makeup shopping and assorted skin woes.

 Understanding firsthand how our skin can affect our self-esteem, and how overwhelming it can be to navigate product reviews, new brand launches, and multiple-step regimes, Erin guides you to products that work for you, and sheds light on those that don’t.
