ELAINE KOPINGA, FOUNDER & CEO, MSN, CNM, WHNP
Elaine Kopinga has a truly novel approach to care, melding practices that have worked for women for centuries with modern, evidenced-based research.
Specializing in urogynecology, menopause, and postpartum care, Elaine has extensive experience working with women in all stages of life. As a nurse practitioner and certified nurse midwife, she has worked in large teaching hospitals and boutique practices serving both high and low-risk populations. During this time she completed hundreds of deliveries, giving her a deep understanding of the challenges facing women after childbirth. This drives Elaine’s ongoing focus on combining women’s health with aesthetic medicine. Caring for this diverse patient population has also made Elaine highly attuned to addressing the changing needs of women throughout their lives, particularly with regard to changes in pelvic floor conditions and overall vaginal health. Underlying Elaine’s diverse skill set is an unbridled passion for connecting with women through listening, teaching, and caring. She believes that true healing begins from the inside out and is honored to help women of all ages as they navigate their journey toward spiritual and physical wellness.
Elaine is the mother of five-year-old twins and a toddler who always finds extra time in her day to ensure her patients and their loved ones receive extraordinary care.
