Joanna Nemrava is a proud mama to three beautiful children and the founder/owner of Mighty Oak Midwifery Care. She is a graduate of the 4 year baccalaureate program in Midwifery Education under the UBC Faculty of Medicine, Division of Family Practice.
Joanna integrates knowledge, experience and intuition to the care of women during pregnancy and childbirth. The midwifery philosophy of care is centred upon an understanding of women as healthy capable individuals progressing through a natural life cycle. It is based on a respect for pregnancy as a state of health and childbirth as a normal physiologic process, and a profound event in a woman’s life.
With open heart and mind, Joanna offers genuine warmth, gentle hands and a strong sense of faith in the natural process of birth and the innate strength of women she serves. Joanna understands pregnancy, childbirth and the journey to becoming “mommy” as a unique opportunity for self discovery, connection and transformation.
The birth of a child is also the birth of a mother….
She is a member of the BC Hospital Appeal Board and sits on the Advisory Board to the UBC Midwifery Education Program.
Joanna is a clinical assistant professor with the UBC Midwifery Education Program and supports the training of midwifery students who are placed with Mighty Oak Midwifery in Kamloops.
