In Their Own Words

A happy birth day for the Krolows

When Phil and Amy Krolow found out they were expecting their second child, they wanted the same medical care they appreciated the first time around... at FHN.

Phil and Amy prefer a natural, holistic approach to pregnancy and childbirth. They found Kim Vittorio, a certified nurse midwife and advanced practice nurse, to be a wonderful partner in their birthing experience. According to Amy, "Kim was so supportive. From our first visit through the delivery, she respected alternative choices, explained options, and fielded frequent questions with a great deal of wisdom and patience. We never felt rushed, and we always felt like Kim was looking out for our physical and emotional well-being."

"Plus," explains Phil, "all the nurses respected and followed our birth plan in detail. They helped bring Porter into the world just as we hoped it would happen. Now, even though his little brother has arrived, big brother Xander wants to 'go see Kim.' She - and the entire OB team - made quite an impression on all of us!"
