Holly has been a Registered Midwife for 9 years. During this time, she has developed skills and experience across all areas of maternity care, including antenatal, labour, birth, and postnatal care.
In 2016, Holly became a member of the first Midwifery Group Practice team, based within King Edward Memorial Hospital. Here she spent the next 4 years providing continuity of care to women and their families, before having children of her own. Having discovered her passion for this model of care, Holly undertook further studies to become an Endorsed Midwife. Holly is now based in the community and through a continuity of care model, her focus is to educate and empower women to make informed choices and have a positive experience as they journey through pregnancy and early parenthood.
Outside of work, Holly enjoys spending time with her family.
What led you to a career in midwifery?
From a young age, I was always knew I wanted a career that involved helping and supporting others. When I finished high school, it was obvious that healthcare, specifically Midwifery was my calling. I started my journey as a midwife and have never looked back.
What is your birth philosophy?
Pregnancy, labour and birth is such a significant and life changing experience which is unique to each woman and her family. Although hugely exciting, it can also be quite overwhelming. My role is to educate and provide support so that each family can feel confident and informed to make the best choices for their individual needs.
What is the most rewarding part of being a midwife?
Aside from being able to work with women through their whole pregnancy journey. I am always thrilled to see families return as they grow and feel a special sense of pride and privilege when I am asked to be a part of the journey again.
What attracted you to be part of Western Obstetrics?
The rare opportunity to work in a supportive, multidisciplinary team environment whilst offering a bespoke continuity of care model. The relationships that I get to build with the women and families in my care is also pretty special.
