Melfane Dawlish is an Andoran midwife. Her aunt is Essande.


Melfane Dawlish is a short and stout woman with dark eyes.[1][2] She is generally a happy woman who has a ready laugh, but is very tyrannical to those who do not follow her orders.[1]


When Monaelle leaves Caemlyn, Essande suggests that Melfane take over as Elayne Trakand's midwife.[3] As Elayne's pregnancy progresses, Melfane examines her and warns her not to tax herself.[2][4][5] Melfane is summoned by Mat and Birgitte when Elane was stabbed during her subterfuge with the captured Black Ajah members.[6] Following the stabbing, Melfane orders that Elayne be put on bed rest for a week.[7] Not wanting to disobey her midwife's direction, Elayne has her bed carried to a city wall to see the dragons demonstration.[8] After months of assurances that she was carrying twins, Elayne is elated when Melfane confirms that there are two babes.[9]
