Mercer joins us from the west coast having graduated from The University of British Columbia while living on the beautiful island of Salt Spring. Originally from London and having lived everywhere, she has returned home to join Thames Valley Midwives.
Mercer’s Interest in midwifery stemmed from both a personal health crisis and a master’s degree in International Development, focusing on maternal and child health. Mercer is fascinated with midwifery in a global context and is also an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant).
In her past life she has travelled the world as a professional scuba diving instructor but now her spare time is spent refinishing vintage furniture, renovating her century home, and chasing her five wild island kids, all born at home with the loving support of midwives.
