Personal-Midwifery means, “with woman”. We at New Life Midwifery believe that pregnancy and childbirth are among the most special and memorable events in a woman’s life. And since no two women are the same, our services are unique and personal, tailored to each woman’s specific needs.
Professional- Our midwives are licensed, Certified Direct-Entry midwives. We bring a combined 25 years of maternity care experience. Professionalism is important to us. We create an atmosphere that is safe, comfortable, and enjoyable as we establish a trusting relationship with our clients and their families.
Natural- Learning to trust our bodies and birth as a natural process is a foundation to midwifery. God made the woman’s body to give birth and we trust that. There are so many benefits to natural birth for you and your baby. If this is all new to you, we encourage you to look into this and discover the joy a natural childbirth can bring to your family.
Holly is so wonderful at what she does. As a first time mom with a million questions, she was always so wonderful at easing my mind. I wouldn't even think about going to anyone but Holly for another pregnancy.
Holly has delivered four of my five children and I look back at each labor and delivery with joy and thankfulness. Holly was always a quiet, strong, supportive presence- just the thing I needed to feel safe and confident to bring my children into this world. Prenatal and postpartum care has always been such an amazing experience that I often wish I was pregnant again just so I could go see Holly!!!!!!
Each of Holly's apprentices over the years have been knowledgeable, supportive and amazing people too and I have thanked God many times for leading me to New Life Midwifery when we moved up here 8 years ago.
Holly provided my prenatal care for my first baby, and attended my home water birth. She is my midwife again for my second baby. Prenatal care was/is personal and informational - she gave me natural remedies to pregnancy ailments. When my amniotic fluid was low, she caught it in time and told me exactly what to do - I gained 3 lbs of water weight in one evening. I could always text her at any time and get helpful advice (even in between pregnancies she helped me with natural remedies to a UTI).
For my home birth, she made sure our family was fully aware of all possibilities and had plans in place to adapt. She followed my birth plan perfectly - she remained hands off during my birthing time and helped with pushing with exactly what my baby and I needed. She was always calm and quiet, and gave simple, clear directions that really helped. I used Hypnobabies, and Holly and Melanie were very supportive. The home water birth was incredible and easy. I was always relaxed and calm. Thanks to Hypnobabies and Holly, I knew exactly what to expect and was able to relax and let my body do its job. Holly made sure I ate some breakfast before she left my house, and came back the next day to check up on baby and me.
I loved the personal care and I LOVED being home for my birth. I'm so excited for my second birth in April - I plan on doing the home water birth again! Thanks Holly and Melanie!
