Reviews on JOANN FALCON
We choose Joann as a midwife to birth our identical twin girls. I went into labor on 05/24/2013 at 40 weeks. When I went into labor Joann was no where to be found. My planned homebirth ended up being an unassisted child birth with my and my husband resulting in the death of one of our twin daughters. I received poor treatment from Joann I would advise any family considering to chose Joann as a midwife to stay away because it's not worth loosing a child. I asked Joann for a refund to help pay for my daughters funeral arrangement and she advised me to contact her lawyer. I called her numerous of times she ignored my phone calls and refused to speak with me. She did not complete any screening test for my children, complete birth certificate forms etc.... I've been left with the death of a daughter and paperwork. I wish I never met Joann and wish she would have advised me to go to a hospital that night I went into labor. .
