r. Laurie Baynard is a chiropractor and owner of Lake Charles Chiropractic and Functional Medicine. She also recently opened L Bridal Couture. Though vastly different, both businesses are long-time passions for Laurie. In her chiropractic office, Laurie is passionate about women’s health, especially pregnant women. “Prior to me focusing my practice on pregnancy chiropractic in Lake Charles, there weren’t many resources for pregnant women in our area with back pain. It was just labeled as “part of pregnancy” and it’s not. I hate to see women suffer and not enjoy their pregnancy or motherhood.” Laurie enjoys helping people feel their best, whether in her chiropractic office or in her bridal salon. “That started from a love of people that came from my

parents and God’s love for us. Church, faith, and my family have always been a huge part of my life. I feel like the luckiest girl alive when I go to work. I help people feel better so they can make a difference in their families and in the community. When you feel like you have a calling and impact like that, it compels you to be your best every day.” Laurie has made it her mission to offer her support, time, and funding to programs such as Family and Youth Counseling, ABC Pregnancy Resource Center, and Hand-to-Hold. By shining a light on the needs in our community she has inspired many of her patients, friends, and colleagues to go out into our community, find what is lacking, and offer their own help. She lives her faith daily and is passionately dedicated to this community.
