I am a Jesus, Disney and coffee lovin' momma of 4 wild kids, one wanna be herd dog, and a cranky pig. I'm just doing my best to raise them and a husband while keeping my sanity. My husband and I are both Tyler area natives and have been married since 2013. I've had two home water births myself, one of them being a vaginal breech birth.
Some of my favorite things in life include the show Friends, writing, listening to true crime podcasts, and baking. I enjoy raising my 'farm' and laughing my way through the chaos that comes with it.
I'm Holly Clayburn, I am a Licensed Midwife, Certified Professional Midwife and I own East Texas Birth Co. I initially got into birth work in 2013 working as an OB medical assistant, then became a doula in 2016. I started my midwifery apprenticeship in 2020 and received my CPM in 2022. I am a staff midwife at Blessed Joy Midwifery in Terrell, and offer home births to the Tyler and surrounding areas.
I absolutely love placenta encapsulation and heavily believe in the benefits of it after experiencing them for myself. I love birth education, and giving women choices when others have left them feeling like they had none. I am very passionate about VBACs and breech birth, but believe everyone should have the power and information to choose what birth is best for them.
