Melissa White

RN, CNM

Melissa has a wide variety of experience as a midwife as she has attended deliveries at patient’s homes, in a free standing birth center and in the hospital setting. As a midwife, Melissa strives to provide her patients with information and empower them to be active participants in their care.

She believes that women should be able to receive evidence based care in any setting, receive the information that they need to make informed choices and feel comfortable asking questions. The health of a family is directly related to the health of the mother, therefore Melissa feels providing excellent healthcare to women translates to improved healthcare for the whole family.

Melissa cares for women in the early teen years through menopause. Her passion is for providing care throughout pregnancy. She also provides general women’s health care, including birth control.

Melissa’s Testimonials

Melissa is professional, honest, reliable, thorough, funny, and kind. It is with the highest praise and respect that I recommend Melissa to any pregnant mama considering having baby in a more natural birthing environment.

– Monica G.

It only took one meeting for my partner and I to know Melissa was the one to guide us through our first pregnancy. Not only did we receive exceptional care at each appointment, but our visits were also filled with love and words of encouragement. My sweet girl was brought in by blessed hands along with comfort, peace, and prayers. I can't wait to see them again for baby number two!

– Samantha L.

Transferring care to Melissa was one of the best things I could've done for our growing family. Before finding her, I felt like I had no voice or control in regards to my care or desires for delivery. Her warmth, support and just overall awesomeness throughout my pregnancy and birth impacted our experience for the better. Thank you Melissa for loving me, my family and our newest addition Diego. <3

I have always held a strong belief that pregnancy and birth are normal life events. Working with women and their families has confirmed for me that the childbearing journey is a spiritual, physical and emotional experience.
