Hi! I’m Laura Fortner, MD


I’m a board certified OBGYN and Certified Life Coach. I am married to my high school sweetheart Craig and have 4 wonderful children. We live on a farm in rural Ohio. I have been practicing for 21 years and went from private practice to now an OB Hospitalist position working part time.

Several years ago, I was hit with a malpractice lawsuit and what a roller coaster ride, it has been. It is still not over for me. I have felt shame, loneliness, anger, doubt, fear, and helplessness. I tried many things to heal and as they say, “just get over it”. But nothing seemed to work until I decided to get help and invested with a life coach. Which of course I thought wouldn’t work and was not really my thing. BUT it was the one thing that showed me how to become aware of my thoughts and take back my power. It helped me learn the tools to overcome the anger, fear, isolation, shame, and self-doubt that crept back into my brain. And it helped me be at peace with whatever happens with my lawsuit.


After getting RESULTS I woke up one day knowing I had to help other physicians going through the same thing. We are a profession that mixes up who we are with what we do and the personal and moral injury that occurs after a lawsuit can be devastating. I am so passionate about this that I know I can help you if you are reading this today. I work one on one with physicians and help them to find their purpose and joy again and to be at peace with whatever happens. I also help them equip themselves to the legal system and prepare them for the rollercoaster ride.


Soon I will be launching my 8-week program that will help transform your life when it feels like you are dying on the inside. NO matter if you have had an adverse outcome that you can’t stop worrying about or going through a lawsuit at the moment or even if it happened in the past, I can help. This program will walk you through how to become aware of the stories holding you back, how to separate the facts vs opinions, how to process your emotion and much more. You will be able to wake up with your joy back. You will be able to feel at peace and be able to love life again going back to your self assured and confident self.
