This is referred to as the Magnificat. Here is the entire Magnificat

And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. [47] And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. [48] Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. [49] Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. [50] And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
[51] He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. [52] He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble. [53] He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. [54] He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy: [55] As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever

I am fairly convinced that in this passage, "God my Savior' refers to the Father. Jesus hadn't yet become the savior, since he had not at that time even been born. ( let alone become the sacrifice. ) But I could be wrong. Mary, observing the jewish theology she had been raised in, acknowledged the ability of God to deliver his people.

The reason Mary says this is because she needed a Savior too. She, of her own power, could not have spared herself from fallen nature. That's why the Church teaches that she was saved, but in a special way---in advance of the merits of Christ, thus saving her from the fallen nature to begin with. You can see this reflected in the actual definition of her Immaculate Conception which ties it into Christ's work.
[T]he most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the first instance of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by Almighty God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God and therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful. (Ineffabilis Deus)

I've heard people use this verse to discredit the Catholic Dogma of the Immaculate Conception, for if Mary needed a savior, then she must have had been born with Original Sin.

To counter this, one needs to think of two women walking through a jungle. One falls into a pit, where a tiger is. Tarzan comes along and saves the women from the pit before the tiger can eat her. Then, as he sets the first woman safe in a tree, he spies the second woman walking. Just before the woman unknowingly falls into the same pit, Tarzan saves her as well and places her in the same tree as the first woman.

Now, Tarzan is the savior for both women, but one woman was saved after her fall and one was saved prior to her fall.

Mary was saved by God prior to suffering from the Fall of Original Sin.

Nope, Mary never called Jesus her savior.

Supporting what NotWorthy posted:

Saint Augustine and Saint Jerome had many conflicts. At one point Saint Jerome was berating him for his sinful past. Saint Augustine pointed out that Jesus had saved them both: Saint Augustine out of a life of sin and Saint Jerome from a life of sin.
