We are Leslie and Emily, a mother-daughter duo who are passionate about prenatal nutrition. We are both mothers and professionals who believe that proper nutrition and supplementation during the first years of life have the ability to change the health of your family for generations. We discovered in our education and clinical experience together that there was a lack of easy and accessible nutritional support and education for expectant mothers and families. From this void bloomed GrowBaby®.
GrowBaby® offers empowering education and compelling knowledge. GrowBaby® provides an opportunity to change the expression of genetics in utero. It is our hope that through GrowBaby® we can help create change. We want to decrease the risk of worldwide chronic disease one baby at a time. The proper energy and nutrition that passes through us and into our children as they grow will create an environment with the potential to decrease the risk of asthma, allergies, cardiometabolic disease, autism spectrum disorders, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. We look forward to the day when all families worldwide can have equal access to clean water, fresh food, and proper nutrition to create healthy lives.

La Clinica provides quality, affordable, wellness-focused health care at 17 locations across Southern Oregon and specializes in care for women at its Family and Women’s Health Center at 910 S. Central Ave., Medford.
Our primary mission is to provide care to Jackson County residents with lower income levels, but our patients reflect every age group, race, ethnicity, and income level found in the community.
For pregnant women, we offer the services of a team of certified nurse midwives, with the option of delivery at any Jackson County hospital. We also have family physicians and an obstetrician on staff.
In addition to traditional prenatal care, we operate Jackson County’s first CenteringPregnancy program. This innovative, research-based group approach to prenatal care offers women the opportunity to move through pregnancy with the services of a midwife while also learning about prenatal and parenting topics and enjoying a community of women at the same stage of pregnancy. A staff lactation consultant helps with breastfeeding issues.
La Clinica accepts the Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) and more than 200 other types of insurance and offers an income-based sliding scale for uninsured women. Everyone is welcome—we don’t turn away anyone who needs our care.
