With my past pregnancies I had felt out of control. Intuitively I knew there had to be a better way. I needed someone who could help me prepare for a more natural child birthing experience. Someone who could advocate for me during labor and delivery. Someone who I could trust and possibly fill in as my coach if my husband was away at time of the delivery. Fran was there to help me go over my birthing plan, my prenatal appointments, and she got to attend one of my ultrasounds. She knew just what I needed during my labor, too. She took care of all the details. When it was time for the delivery, she was my biggest cheerleader. Fran is now a very special person in my family because she is part of my baby’s birth story.”
