Hello, I'm Holly Westbrook; a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) and Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN).
After having my first two children in the hospital, I discovered out of hospital midwifery care and embarked on my own journey to have an unmedicated birth. During that journey, what I also found was relationship, quality care, informed decision making, and providers who highly believe in and support the natural physiologic process of pregnancy and childbirth. Since then, we have gone on to have our last 5 children in the comfort of our own home.
My philosophy on pregnancy and childbirth is that these are normal physiologic processes that occasionally need medical help; not medical events that sometimes happen naturally. When we equip the body with good nutrition and lifestyle/body movement, we help to plant the seeds for normal, healthy pregnancy and births. I look forward to helping equip you with the tools you need to help achieve the pregnancy/birth you desire!
I started my career as a Registered Nurse (RN) working in a busy birth center; transitioning to a busy hospital while in midwifery school. As a Certified Nurse Midwife I've served low to medium risk women in a hospital based practice and now as an out of hospital midwife. Since 2012 I have attended hundreds of natural births.
As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I hold a national board certification from the American Midwifery Certification Board; and am licensed in the state of Texas as a Certified Nurse Midwife and Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Nursing with a specialty certificate in Nurse Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University.
