As Clinical Faculty at the University of Washington and Director of the Center of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss at Pacific NW Fertility, she is committed to providing excellence in patient care, teaching the next generation of women’s healthcare providers, and continuing research in the fields of fertility and recurrent miscarriage.

Lora has published over 50 peer-reviewed research projects and is an active member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, Pacific Coast Reproductive Society, and Seattle Gynecology Society.

Dr. Shahine is an accomplished author of many blogs and articles as well as two books. Her first book, “Planting the Seeds of Pregnancy: An Integrative Approach to Fertility Care” she co-authored a guide to both Eastern and Western approaches to fertility care. Her second book, “Not Broken: An Approachable Guide to Miscarriage and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss” is an evidence based review of the current evaluation and treatment for miscarriage.

She is dedicated to changing the conversation surrounding infertility and miscarriage from one of shame and guilt to one of support and empowerment.
