Holly No. 7

214 Hammond St., Bangor, ME 04401


Holly No. 7 began as a quiet but persistent idea several years ago. Many weeks would go by with no thought of it. In the middle of a conversation, while at a birth, at a prenatal, or at the end of a conversation, this idea would pop into my head and fall out of my mouth. This idea kept growing and resurfacing until one day in March 2015 I made a call to inquire about how one went about starting a birth center. I was informed about a workshop titled "How to Start a Birth Center." Much to my surprise, the timing of it worked perfectly with the babies due in my practice (such a rare occurrence!). Off I went a week later to learn some of the basics. And from then on, the once quiet and persistent idea took root and grew into the center we now have.
