Hollea is a certified birth and postpartum doula and childbirth educator through Perinatal ReSources. She has also completed my Breastfeeding Peer Counselor training through the LLLI’s peer counselor training program. She is currently a student midwife and starting a few local support groups in her area for moms and their families.
Hollea’s interest in childbirth and supporting women through the process came after she had her son and was failed by the system. Had she had the knowledge and known she had choices, she would have made several different ones in her own birth. This is the reason she became a doula. She wants to empower each woman to find her inner strength, have the ability to have access to the knowledge needed for their birth experience and for them to know that they are in charge of their care.
Hollea has attended numerous births and especially likes working with VBAC moms.

Rachel is also a Licensed Massage Therapist, CranioSacral Therapist and Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist.
