I provide unbiased holistic birth support for mother and family during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. I strive to help you achieve a positive, peaceful, and rewarding experience as you bring your baby into this world. A large portion of my work is emotional support; hearing you, sharing with you, encouraging you, reminding and reassuring you. Your body was designed for this specific purpose and my goal is to help you listen to your body and work with your contractions. To ensure that you receive the best possible care for you and your newborn baby, I will be available to you for two weeks after birth and when you are ready we will schedule a postpartum appointment to debrief and go over your birth timeline.

My love for supporting mothers started with my own story. I was a new mom, going into having her first child feeling scare, helpless, and not at all confident in my abilities as a birther. I had no idea the resources available or the choices that I could make for myself or my baby. After having my daughter, I just knew that I had to learn how I could support moms through their pregnancy and birth.

Care philosophy

I am a DONA trained Doula and my passion is for supporting mothers! I serve mothers in the Tulsa area through birth/labor doula care and postpartum doula care! I am a huge advocate for new moms and for helping their families feel ready and empowered! For me, being a doula is about more than helping your birth go smoothly- it is about helping you feel loved, seen, heard, and understood.

I believe it is a gift to be able to make a difference in the way people feel supported and cared for throughout their birthing experiences. It’s the main reason I became a Doula. To provide the support that we ALL deserve. I personally understand (and remember vividly) what it feels like to be supported vs not. I feel extremely fortunate and honored to have been trusted and invited into many birth spaces over the years. My goal is to do everything I can to make birth better. It is a mission that I continue to take very seriously.

Care philosophy

I am here for you and what you envision for yourself. I'm open to learning new cultures and ways of thinking, Which I feel puts many expectant parents at ease. I embrace how you want to bring your baby Into this world and would love to help you achieve that vision.

When I began working with expecting families in 2011, I immediately realized how important it is to have someone by your side who believes in you, during pregnancy, labor & birth, and postpartum. As my experience grew, my deep trust in the physiology of pregnancy, labor and birth grew, alongside my gratitude and respect for the medical technology we also sometimes need. I have experience supporting natural/unmedicated births, VBACs (vaginal birth after cesarean), planned and unplanned cesarean births, high-risk birth, inductions, single moms, couples, and LGBTQIA families. I bring to each prenatal visit, childbirth class, and labor my knowledge and experience from working with many families before you, and I would love to help you create the birth experience you desire!

Care philosophy

I believe that each of us can make our own best life choices given the opportunity, and that there are no stupid questions when it comes to birth, chestfeeding, and our bodies. I am passionate about demystifying pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, and postpartum body stuff alongside my clients, without an agenda.

When I started this journey I was a mom of a toddler. My sister asked for my help when my niece went into labor. She said it had been a while since she had, had any babies. As her youngest was 16 at the time. I said it would be an honor. What I witnessed that day made me realize that the birthing mom needed someone to lean on. No matter who she had in the room.When I started my certification process my mother in-law was quite ill. She was the one who encouraged me to do this. Having seen me help my sister in-law get through the pain of childbirth and come out of it successfully. She said “Holly this is you're calling”. She was a firm believer in doing what you loved to do no matter the hours because if you love what you do then it is never a chore or a job. It is what you are meant to do. I feel this is my calling in every way. My children are grown and I have been serving mom's since 2003 as a Doula. I am happily married to my wonderful husband of 27 years. I have two beautiful grown daughters. My husband and I have recently relocated to the Tulsa area. We have made a home in Owasso and I look forward to serving the area.

Care philosophy

The power of a mothers body is amazing and being able to guide mothers in the process of this is my purpose. I believe that the need for caring, sensitive and knowledgeable support during this time is becoming more and more apparent. I see every pregnancy and birth as a miracle. As a Doula I feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise to women and families.

Doulas also take an active role in collaborating with the parent to create a birth plan.

Doulas are non-medical professionals who provide emotional, physical and educational support, while also offering actionable advice and guidance to new parents about how to nurture their baby.

A midwife is a certified nurse-midwife (CNM) or a certified midwife (CM). CNMs are medical professionals that are certified and licensed by the American College of Nurse-Midwives. CMs are also certified, but they do not have nursing backgrounds.

Doulas are not medical professionals; they focus on the emotional support for the parents and the family before, during, and after the birth of the baby. Their job is to provide information, advice, and support to the family not diagnose any medical conditions or provide medical advice.
