Joanne Cunha, MS, CNM
Certified Nurse Midwife
A Rutgers University graduate, Joanne 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.
