Our Clinic

Labour & Delivery


We are the North Shore’s premier maternity and newborn clinic, staffed by a team of family physicians with specializations and extensive training in obstetrics. We focus solely on prenatal, postnatal and newborn care.


During the course of your pregnancy you will meet with each of our doctors, ensuring familiarity with whoever delivers your baby.

LGMC is proud to bring over 400 beautiful babies into the world each year; around one-third of the total births at Lions Gate Hospital.

LGMC opened in 1998 to consolidate the maternity care of Drs. Clark, Harrison, Perry and Purvis, part of their family practices for many years.

These founding physicians have since retired, and the clinic is now staffed by Drs. Laurie Lawson, Elaine Galt, Sarah Campbell, Julia Hlynsky, Lynzie Taylor and Elizabeth Cameron; with locum coverage from Dr. Mary Glen.

Each physician works one day in the clinic and one 24 hour on-call session per week, as well as one 72 hour weekend on-call per month.
