“The level of care Elaine gave me during my second pregnancy was incredible. She was always there when I needed her. Ace was there to deliver my daughter and helped me achieve a successful VBAC, which I will never forget. These midwives both gave me such a calm, positive and healing experience. Much appreciation to you hard working ladies of Mighty Oak, xo.”

Sami Didrich

“Ace (and Joanna) were so amazing. Throughout my pregnancy Ace provided me with the knowledge and care to make the best choices for me and my daughter. I always felt comfortable and supported. She’s just so awesome! I was so sad to leave her care. If you are considering a midwife, I fully recommend you go for it! Ace, Joanna and the rest of the team are incredible women. Kamloops is lucky to have them!”

Krista Macaulay

“The care provided throughout my pregnancy and postpartum healing was the most attentive and gentle that suited my needs and exceeded all my expectations. Joanna made me feel safe, powerful, and very reassured during this beautiful journey, which allowed me to have the home birth that I always longed for. Will forever be grateful for her and for the care I received. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
