Member Since 2013
I have always had a love for childbirth. I attended my first birth when I was just 17. After having five children of my own, and supporting many friends through their labors, I knew it was where I belonged.
I did my training with DONA in November 2010, and attended my first "official" birth in June of 2011. I attended a second training through BEST Doula training for doula and childbirth educaiton in 2019. Even after the time that has passed, and the numerous births I've attended, I still LOVE birth, and strive for a positive, fulfilling birth for every client no matter what!
Holly Hamby - CD

After the birth of my first daughter, my passion for pregnancy and birth was ignited. I loved the power and capability of the female body and mind to bring new life into the world. I began my certification shortly after my first daughter was born. After having my second daughter at home and experiencing the differences and pros and cons between the hospital and home birth environments, I have felt a calling to help mothers strive for their ideal births. All women deserve to look back on their birth stories and feel empowered.
As a birth doula it is my job to make expectant moms feel prepared for labor and delivery as well as adjusting to life with a new baby by providing resources, coaching, and emotional support. I am passionate about the journey of pregnancy and birth, and I want every mom to feel in control and confident leading into birth.
