Holli was exceptional with our newborn baby, and to the family overall through our postpartum. We unfortunately had some unexpected and unique postpartum complications, stemming from an infection / sepsis for Mom shortly after birth. This event threw us all into a trial by fire right away, and Holli was still able to step right in with us to help support our newborn, and each of the family members at an important time to help in our recovery.
Fortunately, baby and mom are all doing great now, and we couldn't have imagined going through it all without the doula support. She was able to help with our unique needs and timing in a number of valuable ways, including with her overall expertise and knowledge.
Hopefully others reading this will have a less-complicated postpartum recovery than we did (due to the unexpected illness for Mom), but it is probably a great security for any new parents to know that Holli is incredibly well-equipped and skilled to support everyone, whether it is a more-typical postpartum experience, or in the event that complications might arise like they did on us.
its difficult to describe my gratitude and respect for Holli as i have crossed this threshold into mama-hood. i am yet to encounter anyone who brings such a potent mix of pagan spirituality, feminist/queer/anti-racist politics, and deep awareness of the day-to-day physical and emotional labour of raising a human - whether about my self, my baby, or my relationships. from across the other side of the Atlantic she helped me to hear my instincts, protect my space, and look after my body - even ordering nettles to be sent to my door with a recipe for a magical postnatal brew! she is a powerful soul. i'm lucky to have had her along for this wild and beautiful ride.
Holli is such an incredible doula and is a nourishing breath of fresh air in general. Her ability to baby juggle (including twins), make delicious food, hold loving space for all the feelings and nurture the family as a whole is incredible. Her artistic expression comes through in the way she cares for others and anyone would be more than blessed to have her as their doula. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
