Mom says, “Rowan Basil was born gently into this world in the water, caught by mama. I had such a wonderful experience with Rowan’s birth – Holly’s kindness and trust and comfort was just what we all needed, and Debbie Hull’s and my husband’s touch and kind words walked me through each contraction and reminded me that the pain had a purpose.

“I had an intact perineum, a calm, low lit, private birth, I was trusted with when to push, allowed to grab him, and got lots of snuggle time. Everything I wanted! Healing this time around is night and day from my first experience. I feel like an empowered woman and I’m still floating on a cloud with my sweet, snuggly baby. Thank you to my incredible birth team!”

Holly was patient, encouraging, and calm during the labor and I had the support of my husband and doula, Debbie Hull, all of whom, stayed by my side. I’m a huge planner, but even I couldn’t have planned a more perfect birth to welcome our little one to the world. Thank you again for being part of the biggest moment of our lives.”
