Tamara Lacelle, R.M.

I have always believed in the timeless wisdom of a birthing person. I trust that they are able to make the decisions that are right for them and their growing family. My midwifery heart is rooted firmly in educating and empowering clients to make autonomous choices, supported by evidence-based health care.

My journey to midwifery began when I gravitated towards care in my first pregnancy. At the time I lived in a province where midwifery was very common and accessible for any person who was interested. Seeking midwifery care was a given to me, in the most innocent of ways. “Well, why wouldn’t I want a midwife?” was always my baffled response when people asked about it. I knew from my first appointment that midwifery was what I’d do with my life. After my daughters were born in 2002 and 2004, I pursued life as a doula to dip my toes into the pool of labour and birth support, education, and care. Years spent on winding paths of growth and change, navigated by drive and passion, culminated in graduation from Mount Royal University’s Bachelor of Midwifery program in 2016.     

I’m blessed, every day, with the opportunity to partner with clients for health, safety, and connection. I love that this is my life, and look forward to helping people give birth with intention.
