Hello, my name is Holly. I trained as a nurse years ago before I had my three children. I loved the care I could give to my patients and clients and help them in so many ways, emotionally as well as physically. After having my own family I knew that I wanted to work with mothers and their young families supporting them and helping them become the parents they want to be. Now that my three children are at school full time I now have the time to dedicate myself to women and their family on this amazing time in their lives. Becoming a mother helped me to understand that women sometimes feel they need extra support during their pregnancy and childbirth. Being a doula is the way in which I feel I can help women achieve their positive birth experience. I can help families in so many ways, from listening to women’s hopes and fears to helping them make the choices that suits them.
I pride myself in going the extra mile for my clients and the small touches that make the experience so memorable. I spend time listening to expectant parents and understanding what they feel and need in a doula, and I make sure that all their needs are met. I have looked after a number of women in so many different ways over the years and am very proud to be a recognised doula. Every woman needs to feel safe, supported and empowered during her pregnancy and Birth. Please call me to chat more about how I may be able to support you. Please take a look at my website and social media if you would like to see more about me and my services: www.birthingbabies.net
doula-holly instagram: doula-holly Testimonials: We were so over the moon with the support and guidance that Holly provided us with when we welcomed our first child into the world last year. I had known that I wanted a doula for the birth but was worried about finding someone I would be able to trust and feel understood what we wanted from the birth. When we met Holly we felt totally at ease and instantly clicked with her. I didn’t get the home birth I had planned, but because of Holly’s gentle reassurance and support, I was able to have a very chilled, relaxed birth with just gas & air and minimal intervention – despite being in a consultant led environment (something I had dreaded throughout my pregnancy). I really don’t think my son would’ve had such a calm entry into the world without her and I am so grateful for that. Holly not only looked after me but also my partner, helping to reassure him and enable him be there for me when I needed him. I have recommended her to anyone I know who is pregnant and considering a doula. If we decide we ever want another baby we will be booking Holly! Carly, Michael & Rex. X Holly is an amazing birthing partner and a person, not just a doula! She helped to make my dream of a natural homebirth without harsh drugs come true, my first birth was c-section, so she was up for a challenge of VBAC!! I’m ever so grateful to her! She was not even on call on that day, and she still came and helped me and stayed throughout the most difficult and exiting day of my life! She followed all of my instructions thoroughly and helped me to use homeopathy, essential oils and massage my back(oh heavens sent), rebozo – anything, she was on top of it! Absolute star! Really gifted doula ❤️⭐️💐🙏🏻😘Natalie, St Albans I wouldn’t have done this through the labor and postnatal without the help of Holly. She was there to help me out physically and emotionally. Highly recommended to any parents to be even you have friends or family to help out but there is nothing like profession help. Love you.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amie and Melrose x Holly
