Over the last few weeks we've been introducing the people behind Omaha Birth Connection. Today we'll interview one of our birth doulas who has decided to be a part of Omaha Birth Connection, Holli Sperry.
What is the best gift you can give a new mom as a doula?
Reassure her in her own confidence and help contribute to a peaceful atmosphere to welcome her baby.
What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?
Wow, that woman is so beautiful. She is full of love and selflessness.
What led you to become a doula?
When I was a little girl I loved seeing all the women in church with round bellies. People always said that I have the ability to make others feel confident in themselves and that I have a soothing spirit. As I got older, that grew into a great connection with women and a passion for birth.
What is your favorite TV show or movie?
I love Parks and Rec. and Psych! Juno and Freedom Writers are also great movies.
What is your favorite food?
Homemade Mac’ and Cheese.
What are your long term plans?
To become a midwife.
