Testimonial for Francie Webb

After the doula we hired was with us for 24 hours, she called in Francie to support us so she could take a break and get some rest. Francie came raring to go with so much great energy that she maintained for the whole 16(?) hours she was with us. I had planned a home birth but after 30 hours of laboring at home and some concern baby was in distress, Francie arrived just as we were preparing to transfer to the hospital. She helped us get out the door and get through every step and decision at the hospital including supporting me through several (very uncomfortable) hours in triage before being admitted, 1 epidural that came undone, another epidural placement, and finally the decision to get a c-section and the first little while in the recovery room after the birth. She helped me remember all the preferences and priorities we had discussed when she first arrived as I made each medical decision and supported my partner when she wanted to talk to me about considering a c-section. She held my hand through so many painful contractions and helped me ask for support when the first epidural failed and I wasn't sure whether it was breakthrough pain or a failed epidural.
As a trans/non-binary birthing person, I was super scared of all the new providers entering the situation (I also had a replacement midwife due to unforseen circumstances and then of course had all the new-to-me providers at the hospital) and she was amazing with all the queer and trans stuff, helping me advocate for myself at the hospital and not messing up my pronouns etc.
She joined our doula at the follow up visit once we were home and stayed in touch over text since after that.  I would recommend Francie to any family looking for birthing support.  We are so grateful that we lucked into her presence at our birth.
