Midwifery Students

Emily Tollar

Hello! My name is Emily Tollar (she/her) and I am currently heading into my fourth year of Midwifery at McMaster University. I was born and raised in the Niagara Region, and I am thrilled to be back to serve my community in the place I call home!

I have a background in Medical Sciences at Brock University, where I completed 2 years prior to finding my passion for midwifery and getting accepted at McMaster. I am very excited to be joining your team while working and learning with my preceptors Rachel Pennings and Brittany Orlando, starting May 2022!

I am truly passionate about creating birthing environments where trust and safety are at the forefront. I love that midwifery offers clients evidence-based support while also promoting continuity of care to help nurture positive experiences during antenatal appointments, birth and postpartum care. To me, midwifery is more than just a job, it embodies a way of life, and community with a philosophy that I truly align with!

In my spare time, you can find me at hot yoga, out on an adventure with my dog and partner, or trying a new recipe! 

Emily will be working with Brittany and Rachel on Team Orange.
