Welcome! My name is Holly and I am the original creator of Breast Milk Keepsakes. I started my business 2002 and am the only one who touches your keepsake from start to finish. Please take my expertise into consideration when choosing to have something so precious and personal preserved.
I came up with the idea of preserving breast milk when I was having a difficult time transitioning from nursing. I'm a very sentimental person and wanted some way to honor that time I spent with my boys while welcoming the next phase of childhood and thought surely there are other parents out there that feel the same. My idea has grown into something so incredibly meaningful to families with many different stories. The service I provide has come with heartache as well because not all parents have their babies to hold. My ability to provide these keepsakes has given me so much purpose and gratitude - I absolutely love what I do!
I am a mother of two boys, Jack and Joseph, and wife to my awesome side kick Jeff. I spend my free time doing Crossfit and going on adventures with my crew. Family comes first, and when they are content, I'm busy trying to harness my frantic creative energy into something meaningful.
Why I do what I do?? Breastfeeding changed my life, expanded my mind, and connected me to my boys in ways I could have never imagined. I am so very passionate about my children and amazed that my milk has helped them grow so beautifully. What an extraordinary power to MAKE MILK, and I would do anything to preserve that memory forever. These beautiful pieces do just that, and last as a tangible keepsake that you can pass to your children as they become parents. To see that precious milk preserved forever is beautiful to me and I hope you agree.
Meeting parents along the way, hearing their success stories, or tales of hardship and loss has been the most amazing gift. Helping them remember, treasure, and heal has been such a huge blessing in my life. I feel so very fortunate to be given this gift that not only helps people, but it provides for my family as well. I'm most grateful that my passion for creating is something that you will treasure forever. Thank you for trusting me with your precious memories, you'll never know what that means to me. ♥
