Joanne Cunha
A Rutgers University graduate, Joanne Cunha earned a Master of Science from the Columbia University School of Nursing in New York City. “I believe that women should have choices about tests done during their pregnancies, as well as options for labor, for nourishment, activity, and pain management. It’s exciting that Saint Peter’s is embracing this opportunity for women to have less intervention and more authority.

Grace Fimbel
A Hunter College graduate, Grace Fimbel earned a Master of Science degree from the Columbia University School of Nursing in New York City. “My philosophy is that pregnancy is a normal part of life. Both my children and my grandson were born outside of the hospital into the competent hands of midwives. I truly believe in the kind of care that families are seeking.
