I’m Hollie Stock and I am a Certified HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, a Certified Birth and Postpartum doula, VBAC Link Trained and Founder of Acorn to Oak Collective. As a birth and postpartum doula, I provide families with personalized and continuous support, both emotional and physical, during pregnancy and labour as well as emotional and practical support after baby is born. I also provide evidence-based information that allows parents to make informed decisions, leaving them with a sense of confidence and empowerment.
As a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, I teach families how to achieve a satisfying, relaxing and stress-free birth. HypnoBirthing techniques teaches you how to release fear and to trust your body’s ability to birth instinctively. I practiced HypnoBirthing during both of my pregnancies so I know first hand how effective this course is in empowering parents with techniques to achieve a gentle, calm birth for themselves and their baby whatever turn their birthing takes.
Outside of my life as a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator and a Doula, I love to do yoga, play music, read, go for walks with my family and organize concerts for my Not-for-Profit organization, Tunes4Tots, which is a classical concert series for babies, toddlers and their carers. In addition to this, I hold a Bachelors of Education Degree and a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Music.
