We had Hollie with Nurture New Life as our birth doula with the birth of our first child. I don’t have enough great things to say about Hollie as our birth doula. She gave us lots of very helpful information in our pre-natal sessions but never pressured us to do things one way or another. She was helpful and supportive in all of our birthing plans. When “go time” came (in the middle of the night, on a holiday, no less) she arrived at the hospital as a calm, peaceful force that responded to my needs, as well as hubby’s, and quickly honed in what was working and what would be the best tools to get us through labor. Even when labor got “dicey” at a certain point, she was still solid as a rock for husband, baby, and I. Of all the words my husband and I could use to describe Hollie, we would say calm, peaceful, friendly, sweet, knowledgeable, and she certainly loves her job! We often reflect back and say we are so happy that we had Hollie next to us through this process. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any expecting moms/couples."
