About Me

Lauren Yu, M.D. is an OB-GYN by training with a specialization in OB Hospitalist Medicine. She began practicing at the Cherese Mari Laulhere BirthCare Center at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach in 2020.

She was raised in Richmond, Virginia, and received a Bachelor of Science from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. Her medical degree was received from Morehouse School of Medicine in 2015. She completed residency at the University of California, Irvine in 2019, followed by a fellowship program in OB Hospitalist Medicine at Magee Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

As someone who is passionate about providing evidenced-based medicine to patients who are underserved in a high-acuity setting, she thrives in the inpatient setting. Her clinical interests include work with the Perinatal Improvement and Patient Safety Committee, as well as the Birth Equity team focused on decreasing disparities of care for patients who are minorities.

Being a mother is one of her greatest joys. She and her husband have 14-month-old twin boys. It is her hope that her personal experience with miscarriage and complications of pregnancy will help her to have more in depth patient interactions.
