Dr. Laura Downing is a native of College Station, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University in 2004 Magna Cum Laude, and with University Honors. She moved to Houston to attend medical school at Baylor College of Medicine and stayed in Houston for her residency training at the University of Texas Health Science Center Memorial Hermann Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Program.

After completing her training in 2012 she landed a job at Texas Woman’s Hospital where she quickly became a patient-favorite. Her areas of interest include high-risk obstetrics, minimally-invasive surgery, and she is passionate about patient education. She was recently lured to Austin by her dear friend Dr. Mileur! She and her husband share a love of music and the outdoors, and together with their Catahoula pup, are thrilled to be Austin residents.

“The depth of trust between a patient and her ob/gyn makes my specialty unique and so rewarding. I have the opportunity to help patients of all ages and during some of life’s most special events. From a first visit to the OB/GYN, to navigating a pregnancy, to reaching menopause, women’s health is exciting and dynamic. Guiding my patients through their pregnancies and being a part of their birth experience is the most rewarding aspect of my job. It is such a joy and privilege”
