I LOVED everything about having Holly by my side before, during and after my birth. Since I met Holly I knew she had to be at my birth. She was so empathic with me, she helped me have the birth that I imagined in every sense! She puts attention at every detail, she didn´t miss anything about the discussed birth plan. She helped me find a great photographer for my birth, she texted me all through out my pregnancy, she asked about my appointments, how was I feeling,  she sent backup articles when I needed more information, she always answered all my concerns, gave me emotional support when I needed and gave me a lot of tips while I was in labor), she always had the right words at the right moment. She arrived to the birth center minutes after I got there, she gave me my time and let my labor progress. She encouraged me to get in the tub at the right moment, made me stay hydrated, comfortable and was by my side in every pushing. She let me use my instincts making me feel very empowered and never alone. In every moment she helped me fulfill all my desires. My baby was born in water, we did partial lotus, a cord burning ceremony, she did a placenta print, she made me a raw placenta smoothie right after I delivered and freezer prep cubes with half of my placenta for the following days. I will be thankful forever for being so blessed of meeting Holly and having her as part of my team, I can’t believe how one person brought that great variety of expertise and knowledge to my birth. It was great seeing her a couple of days after and talking about the whole birthing experience. I loved the birth timeline she did for me and the pictures she took. Forever thankful with you! You are the best! Thanks for making EVERYTHING possible!

Holly was my Doula and our Birth Boot Camp instructor. Holly was amazing at helping me conquer my anxiety towards the delivery. She is extremely knowledgeable and didn't mind answering all my questions or rewording things when I didn't understand. Always offered me resources without hesitation. Though I went into labor early and my home birth experience went out the window. She made it a priority to find me a backup Doula. I have no doubt Holly would've been an amazing Doula to have on hand. During our postpartum visit she expressed how it was fine to be upset about my birthing experience, making my feelings feel valid. Her compassion towards my situation made me feel better.

Holly was our Birth Boot Camp instructor and did a fantastic job! Holly is very knowledgeable about all things birth and has impacted us greatly as we prepare to meet our little one. She is extremely patient and explained things very well. We are so grateful for her and the impact she has made on our journey. Thanks to her, we feel very prepared for the birth no matter how things go! Thank you, Holly!

Holly is awesome! You don’t need to read anymore reviews. My wife did all the research and Holly is the best. She trained us so well during our Birth Boot Camp we hired her as our Doula for the birth. We had a home birth and she knew all the tricks and techniques to keep my wife comfortable. My wife had a tough 36 hour long labor and Holly supported her emotionally and physically the whole time.

So happy we found Holly. She was the best that could have ever happen to us during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum. She is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and has a very warm and relaxing personality. I could call or text her day or night and she always responded immediately. Her support in the hospital was incredible. From my first contraction until the baby was in my arms I felt safe and looked after. A big thank you to her, highly recommend Holly be your doula!
