Dr. Auger is hands down the best OB and best doctor I've ever had! She supported me so thoroughly throughout my first pregnancy with her proactive education and thoughtful care. Post partum when I faced some very serious complications Dr. Auger remained a consistent advocate and greatly helped my husband and I as we navigated my health issues, and once home ensured we fully had the opportunity to process and understand my (thankfully positive!!) prognosis. Because of the care from Dr. Auger and the Northwestern OB team, I narrowly avoided a hysterectomy and am forever grateful for the chance to one day hopefully have another baby. There's nothing more in the world I could ask for, and I feel incredibly lucky that I'll have Dr. Auger at the helm as we aim to expand our family in the future.
