Mary Catherine Hamelin, LM
I am a Florida Licensed Midwife, and graduate of Commonsense Childbirth School of Midwifery. My background is in the arts, the creative exploration of the human experience, and I found my greatest inspiration in motherhood. I was born in Florida and grew up climbing orange trees and catching sandfleas. A deep connection with nature weaves through the work I do as a mother and midwife.
Since 2009 I have supported hundreds of birthing families as both a doula and midwife, in diverse communities and various birth settings in both New York City and Florida. I began studying midwifery in 2015, and have been serving The Birth Center of St. Pete as a Florida Licensed Midwife since 2018. I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) providing in-home breastfeeding support. I am passionate about increasing access and approachability to holistic care during the childbearing year, and look forward to serving the Greater Tampa Area with home-visiting community midwifery. In my off time I can be found enjoying the outdoors, gardening, running, arts & crafts, cooking, and being with my family.
