Personal Statement

My journey to serving women started when I was in high school. My best friend thought she might be pregnant and I wanted to help her. I knew if I checked out a book about pregnancy, the librarian would call my mother, so I found a book about a midwife and devoured it in a weekend. One of my teachers at Frontier Nursing University actually worked with the midwife the book was about!

The births of my four children has given me the personal experience to provide empathy and understanding - from high risk hospital birth and cesarean to home water birth. Fourteen years of being a nurse before becoming a midwife has given me a passion for teamwork and advocacy. I feel my role is to come along-side women in their experience and offer information and support to empower women for their own journey.

    Patient Review

    I wish I had had her for my first pregnancy

    Patient Review

    She was very helpful very nice she even talked to my husband and made him feel like he was a person and I wasn't going through it alone.

    Patient Review

    Franny did not inform me that it takes 30 days prior to the tubal for the form to be signed. She was the one that I had seen the last two visits that I had there. She also made me feel like it was my fault that I didn't know and made me feel bad because I had to reschedule my appointment. Which couldn't be helped because my child's father tested positive for Covid.

    Patient Review

    There is no one on the planet as awesome as Franny!

      Each doctor/midwife at UK has had different impressions/diagnoses for me. This has been a terrible experience.
