Mother's Day - Celebrating our staff - Fran Stephens

Fran Stephens Divisional Head of Nursing and Midwifery

Continuing our Mother's Day campaign we are focussing on Fran Stephens. Fran is Divisional Head of Nursing and Midwifery and previously trained as a nurse, then as a midwife before working in all areas of midwifery at a number of Trusts.

“My role involves strategic planning for the delivery of maternity services and this includes engaging with mums and dads and ensuring that their needs and wishes are taken into account when planning services.

“I love the interaction with staff and families and having the opportunity to make a difference to an individual’s experience and helping them plan so that women have a positive start to motherhood.

“For Mother’s Day I will be spending the day with my children and step children. We will have a family lunch and then walk through the gardens at Belton House. For my Mother’s Day present though, I have everything that I need so I have asked the children to donate to Unicef for the ‘Pack for Birth’ which has all the midwifery equipment necessary for the safe delivery of one baby in a third world country.”
