Dr. Roumain was born and grew up in Haiti, where she lived until the age of 18. She attended Union College in upstate New York and graduated in 2001 with a BSc in Biology and Psychology, followed by a doctorate in Medicine at McGill University in Montreal in 2006. She then completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Montreal in 2013, where she also specialized in Reproductive Endocrinology and infertility (REI) in 2015.
She is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and currently a member of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) and the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS). Through the SOGC’s International Women’s Health Program, Dr. Roumain travelled to Haiti regularly with her husband, to educate and train health professionals and medical students on the international standards of maternal and perinatal health. She is fluent in English, French and Creole, and functional in Spanish.
She is the mother of a 9-year-old girl, 7-year-old boy and girl twins, and recently welcomed a 4th child, a baby boy in 2022. She moved to Toronto with her family 2016. As a result of her educational, professional and community outreach experience, Dr. Chloé Roumain has been able to achieve her dream of opening her own Fertility Clinic, Tripod Fertility, in Toronto in 2020, with her husband, also an OBGYN-REI specialist.
Very early in life when she had chosen the path she would take as a career, Dr. Roumain determined that she wanted to go into pro bono work in her native country of Haiti where the shortage of access to health care is tremendous. However, after completing her medical studies and specialization in Canada, Dr. Roumain was not able to practice in Haiti due to unforeseen circumstances. In her present work reality, Dr. Roumain found that there was inequality in access to care among her fertility patients. This led to the creation of the Fertility Friends Foundation, which gives financial assistance and access to allied healthcare professionals to help fertility patients in need.
