Peggy Franklin, CPM
I have a long history of working as an RN in the hospital but then chose to become a non-nurse midwife, I wanted a holistic way to help women and babies, I didn’t want “a job”. I chose to become a Certified Professional Midwife. My heart was aching because of the “one-size fits all” care I saw too often. Today’s maternity providers are too busy to see the mother as a unique person with unique needs. I became a midwife to give you the care you deserve, a guiding hand and knowledgeable oversight that is the hallmark of midwifery. I look forward to the opportunity to make your journey to motherhood meaningful as you prepare for this special season of your life.
