More Details

I began my training in Holistic Therapies in 2000 in Glasgow, at that time choosing to specialise in reflexology, Indian head massage and reiki. During my second pregnancy I felt drawn to working with women, particularly during pregnancy, and attended my first maternity reflexology course in 2010. Following that my interest grew in this field and I began training as a birth & post-natal doula, and placenta remedies specialist, I am currently a member of the Scottish Doula Network. I am passionate about providing good support for women and families in the post-natal period and run a weekly breastfeeding support group, and quarterly breastfeeding preparation workshops, at the Pregnancy & Parents Centre in Edinburgh. I am LGBTQ+ friendly.

Have had a few wonderful sessions with Holly who is really supportive, helpful and calming. Definitely feel more grounded and calm after the sessions. Looking forward to continuing the 12 week block.

I found my placenta specialist (Holly) to be very kind and helpful. I was pleased to be able to use my placenta and I loved the package she brought over. It made me feel further connected to my child.

- Natalie, December 2023

I truly believe the placenta capsules supported my recovery after difficult birth and c-section. I was surprised how quickly I felt better. I also got lots of positive feedback how well I'm looking despite having a major surgery. I would highly recommend the capsules and will do it again if I have another baby.

- Basia, December 2023

Holly Gibb was amazing. She personally drove to the hospital to pick up the placenta and then encapsulated it and had it on my doorstep in just a few days, along with a freebie of her homemade lip balm (which I loved so much I ordered more!). Moreover, she was friendly and very easy to work with. I highly recommend her!

I see Holly regularly and have been for the past couple of years. She's a great reflexologist and listener and I always leave feeling lighter!

- Charlotte, Sept 2023

I most definitely felt the capsules impacted on my energy levels, it almost felt like an adrenaline rush I was just able to get up and go and the tiredness couldn't take over my body! My experience with Hollie was the most pleasurable, she was extremely informative and I did book quite late on which she was more than happy to accommodate and guide me through everything in time! I have already recommended the service to a friend that is expecting!

- anon.

It was such a fantastic experience,Holly was so soft spoken,nice and very welcoming
Had the best time of my life,explained all I was willing to know with patience and gave me a very detailed information
The reflexology part was amazing,I slept off with those soft hands on my feet,immediately I finished,there was peace within me,I felt so happy and contended with my self,And I said to myself Like Holly Said to Me,I will Become A Mother Very Soon and which I have been saying to myself ever since I left there,no more negative thought and saying…Hurray I am Going To Be A Fantastic Mum💃
Guys it’s A Nice Place To Be🤗

- Akhare, Sept 2023

Holly was great went above and beyond to travel so far to collect my placenta at 3am! Lovely extras sent with the capsules

Holly was amazing. She made me feel so relaxed as soon as I soon as got in the room and made me feel very at ease, particularly when I was sharing difficult news. The reflexology was amazing too! So relaxing, I felt like I was floating after it. Would definitely recommend as part of anyone’s fertility journey.

- Lauren, July 2023

This is an edited review - I left a review a year ago having had a very difficult and long journey getting pregnant, and then discovering Holly, and getting pregnant in just a month after starting treatment with her….(for some reason that first review was replaced with my new one so wanted to add this back in!!!)
So now, it’s so lovely to go back to Holly having given birth to my daughter 15months ago. I’ve had a failed pregnancy since my daughter was born and Holly is just so supportive and reassuring, and the treatment makes me feel one hundred times better!

- Amy, June 2023

I started going for fertility reflexology with Holly having struggled to get pregnant for a long time and suffering a miscarriage and then an ectopic pregnancy. After just one month of treatment I fell pregnant with my daughter! I continued to go for reflexology throughout my pregnancy with Holly - I absolutely loved my sessions, I always felt so chilled out afterwards and I had an easy stress free pregnancy! Holly is always so kind and makes me feel comfortable and looked after at each session. I plan to go back to her as soon as I can and would thoroughly recommend her to everyone!!!

- Amy, May 2022

I just wanted to give you some cool feedback (in my opinion!). So I'd forgotten for 2/3 days to take my placenta pills. Over the weekend I was drained, exhausted, irritable (my husband will testify to that) and weepy and had no idea why. I put it down to sleep deprivation and a newborn with reflux and a possible dairy intolerance. Awful! Anyway, this morning I had my pill as I would normally and around 3pm I was literally buzzing. I still am and it's 9.40pm. I feel alert, fresh and full of energy. It dawned on me tonight I'd had my pill this morning so I'm certain it's that! Probably nothing new to you but just wanted to pass that on. I love my placenta!!!!!

- Catherine, March 2021

Hi Holly, I want to say a big thank you for the placenta encapsulation service. I really feel it made a great difference to my energy levels, which was exactly what I needed with a newborn breastfeeding two hourly plus having a two year old in tow! I was quite sad to finish my pills last week. Best wishes to you Holly. Maybe see you for baby no. 3!

- Rachel, June 2020

Thank you Holly, I received your beautiful package. So much love and care has gone into the package and thanks for the extra treats too! If you have any other resources or recommendations to learn more about the placenta I'm really keen to learn x

- anon., June 2019

Holly was informative and very helpful, and I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again. She went out of her way to get capsules to me quickly, and she included some lovely extras too like a print of the placenta and homemade lip balm. I imagine she would be a wonderful, supportive doula too.

- anon., February 2019

SO glad I have done this (placenta encapsulation) third time round. WISH I'd done it with all my babies. Definitely been my most enjoyable baby phase. Holly was lovely- so supportive and understanding.

- anon., February 2019

Got your parcel and am absolutely thrilled, so excited to start my capsules and what a lovely print too, much more than I expected so thank you very much xxxxx

- anon., May 2018

Holly was fantastic! I received my pills on day 3 and she explained everything thoroughly. Would highly recommend her. Wonderful experience. Having suffered from depression in the past I was wary of postnatal. Fingers crossed I haven't had any relapses whatsoever and **** is 4 months old. I am still exclusively breastfeeding and loving every minute of motherhood. Thank you xx

- Claire, February 2018

You are such a lovely caring positive person. I feel blessed that such a wonderful person handled the placenta. I feel blessed to have encountered you and that you managed to take such an important role in the birth process. INFINITELY THANK YOU

- anon., February 2018

Hi Holly, my tablets came earlier today. Thank you so much for everything, didn't think they would've been dried, encapsulated and posted out in such a short space of time. Anyone that's interested in any of the services you provide I will definitely be recommending you xx
