About

JoAnne Burris helps a patient at the UK Polk-Dalton Clinic.

JoAnne Burris, a certified nurse midwife, sees patients at the UK Polk-Dalton Clinic and the new UK Midwife Clinic.
JoAnne Burris found the experience of giving birth to her second child, with the help of a certified nurse midwife, such a profoundly different experience from the way her first child had been born, that she felt called to become a CNM herself. She knew she wanted to help other women experience pregnancy and birth as a natural - not scary or traumatic - life stage and realize their potential to remain in control of their health.

So a year after her son was born, Burris quit her 9-to-5 job and started the process of becoming a CNM. She returned to college to complete her associate's degree in nursing, then acquired the years of labor and delivery nursing experience required before attending midwifery school.

From her personal experiences, Burris knows putting women at the center of their care and encouraging them to believe they are in control are crucial first steps for ensuring positive outcomes.

      Joanne did an amazing job making us feel heard and cared for. The amount of effort she puts into caring for me amazes me. The advice she gave us really helped me feel more confident. She does an amazing job staying focused on the issues while also listening to us and helping us parse out what's important. And great at direction g us to what the next action items are.

      I was very impressed with her bedside manner and kindness. She asked permission or waited for my verbal cue during every step. She also listened to me and took the time to understand my background and history as it was my first visit.

      Joanne talked through my decisions and choices with me to decide what birth control was right for me. She also listened to my concerns about pain and side effects and made a plan with me to handle it.

      I feel this provider did not listen to me, address or answer my pointed questions, and was one track minded, rather than listening to or explaining potential solutions or other reasons a situation could be occurring. If I had my choice, I would not see her again. Due to this experience, I would prefer not to deliver with her either because I did not feel heard or taken seriously. I am actively involved in my health and care and make choices that are best for me and my baby, rather than have someone make them for me. I know my body, I know my pregnancies.
