Melissa Marchand

Registered Midwife

Melissa is so excited to be joining the Mountain Midwifery Care family!

Since launching her career in 2013, she has had the privilege of serving Hamilton families, developing strong trusting relationships and providing the highest level of evidence based maternity care.

In addition to her work as a registered midwife, Melissa is a sessional instructor at McMaster University. Melissa also teaches as a clinical preceptor to students and is a mentor to New Registrant midwives. She volunteers her time with the Shelter Health Network, providing maternity care to clients who access the shelter system in the Hamilton area.

Prior to midwifery, Melissa was a Women’s Studies student at Waterloo University. Melissa’s passion for pregnancy and birth motivated her to become certified as a Doula and Childbirth Educator. Melissa also had the very special experience of visiting The Farm Midwifery Centre, Tennessee USA for training with Ina May Gaskin.

Outside of work, you will find Melissa spoiling her fur babies, singing karaoke to 90s rock music and binging on Netflix.
