BIOGRAPHY

MÉLISSA BOIZOT-ROCHE

The first birth I ever attended was the birth of my sister, at home, when I was three years old. At the time, it did not seem unusual that such a special event would take place in the comfort of our home. Though I later realized that this was far from the norm, this memory shaped my understanding of birth as a natural part of life.

It is that perspective that I brought to my first degree, at UBC, a Bachelor of Science in Global Resource Systems with a focus on women’s health. It became clear to me that not all parents have the options my family had, and that not every woman has the support she needs to make her own choices regarding her body, her health and her family. Wanting to support women and their families, I studied midwifery in French at Laurentian University, and worked as midwife in Toronto and in Huron County before making the move to Georgian Bay in 2020. I spent many summers here as a child and it has been a joy to rediscover the area!

When I’m not catching babies, you might find me hiking, exploring, snowshoeing, reading or playing the fiddle.I am happy to provide care in French and English.
