To Special Deliveries Midwifery

Welcome to Special Deliveries Midwifery.  My name is Kelly Fournier.  I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), in the Springfield, Missouri area, offering home birth services with a Christian-based philosophy.  

My husband Steve and I have been blessed to raise our 11 wonderful children over the course of our 40 years of marriage.  We have 32 extraordinary grandchildren, most of which I have had the honor of delivering at home.  I am passionate about my faith, my family, my friends and my pregnant mothers and babies.  I love getting together with family and friends and enjoy family hikes, boating, swimming, and horseback riding.

My husband and I raised our nine daughters and two sons in Southeast Missouri.  Growing up, my girls told me that when they had children of their own, they wanted me to be their midwife.  I was busy homeschooling, and raising my children, and did not think much of it at the time.  But when my oldest daughter married in 2010, she was soon expecting and asked me to assist her at her birth. I started reading every book on pregnancy, labor and birth that I could get my hands on.  In 2011, I started apprenticing with a local midwife, and was so blessed to deliver my first grandchild. It was at this time that I realized my love for midwifery. I have always loved babies, birthing, and mothering and I began to feel a calling to support and help women bring new life into this world in a natural and comfortable environment.

I have had the amazing privilege and joy of serving women over the past nine years.  I feel that knowledge, sensitivity, preparation, discernment, prayer, and a listening ear are essential in giving support and care throughout pregnancy, birth, and postnatal care.   I am always in awe by how each birth is as beautiful and unique as the babies that are born. I have enjoyed many opportunities to deliver multiple children within the same family, along with the special privilege of serving as midwife for my own daughters.
