We are Midwives.
Midwifery is more than a profession; it is a way of being, as well as a way of providing care.
We take pride in offering dedicated, personalized care that is responsive to each person’s unique experience of pregnancy and birth.”
Midwifery has been regulated and funded in BC since 1998.
Mighty Oak Midwifery Care was the first registered midwifery service in the Thompson-Cariboo-Shuswap region, founded in 2008 by Joanna Norman.
The RIH Department of Midwifery was established in 2011.
Joanna has served as Chief of the Department of Midwifery since its inception.
The Midwifery Model of Care:
Your prenatal and postpartum care will take place at our cozy midwifery clinic that offers a comforting, supportive environment. During the first week after your baby is born, your midwife will provide in-home postpartum care and breastfeeding support for you and your baby.
Midwives value the opportunity to develop personalized care for each family. We want you to feel confident, heard and supported! Appointments with your midwife are 30-60 minutes so you have time to ask questions.
Midwives respect the right of every individual to be fully informed about their options and to participate fully in healthcare decisions every step of the way.
Midwives provide care for families in many settings: hospital, home and community.
We hold hospital admitting privileges at Royal Inland Hospital.
