reconnecting with those areas. She treats an array of issues including

pelvic pain and dysfunction, breast issues, digestive problems,

headaches, TMJ, concussions and pain.

Laura Mercer, RM

Laura Mercer  Registered Midwife

Laura grew up in rural BC, and has called Victoria home for nearly five years. She left a busy career as a Labour and Delivery Nurse in Calgary to begin midwifery studies at UBC in 2010. Helping families during childbirth as a Registered Nurse had made her curious about the transitions of pregnancy and what happens at home with a new baby. Laura felt humbled and awed by her own experience of becoming a mother with the birth of her daughter in 2013.


She enjoys hiking, photography, gardening, and cycling. She has lived in Belgium and Guatemala, so she speaks some French and Spanish.


Laura finds it to be a privilege to support parents over many months and to offer personalized attention to their new baby.
