Mother Nurture HK is dedicated to social outreach and donates birth support services to one in every five births to Pathfinders. Mother Nurture HK doulas volunteer to support migrant women who have no partners or friends available to be with them for birth.
Molly Grenham is our primary practitioner. She brings pragmatism and professionalism to pregnancy and birth. She is known for evidence-based information matched with a strong focus on crafting a personal and empowering experience for couples.
She is committed to educating new parents on best practices for child birth and early parenthood so they feel confident, empowered, and supported in their chosen approaches during this time of transformation. Her warm engagement and energetic teaching style illuminate hidden aspects of birth for her clients.
Molly believes that all women should have the opportunity to be attended by a calm, experienced champion. Whether this is a partner, mother, friend, midwife, doctor or doula, it has been shown that continuous support during labor and birth produces better birth outcomes and higher satisfaction for mothers.
Through years of volunteering breastfeeding support through La Leche League, and hosting mother and baby groups, she continues to support mothers in the months after birth.
Despite having held a lifelong interest in biology and natural health, Molly ignored her passion for medicine and healing and opted for a career in project management.
However, her interest in biology was re-ignited during her first pregnancy, where she studied best practices for natural birth. Molly gave birth to her first child in the UK. She was attended by a doula (and two NHS midwives). She found having a consistent, personal advocate by her side critical to achieving an unmedicated birth at home, as planned. The gentle guidance, encouragement and confident support was a powerful reassurance. For her second birth, in Hong Kong, she benefitted from having a midwife (acting as a doula) to guide her and help time her move to the hospital.
She returned to corporate work after the birth of each of her children. Therefore, Molly understands the unique pressures on postpartum women. After 13 years helping businesses manage large-scale organizational change, Molly pivoted to helping people with their individual transformation to parenthood.
Molly has breastfed both of her sons. She has been volunteering in Hong Kong for the last 3 years supporting mothers and babies to get started and continue breastfeeding for as long as they want. More recently, Molly has regularly hosted NEST 4 Mums (Nurturing Educating Supporting Treating) at Pause in Central.
After suffering with anemia, late milk production and mood swings after her first birth, Molly decided to consume her placenta after her second birth as a natural way to increase energy and improve emotions. She was pleased with the positive difference it made to her postpartum energy levels, milk supply and healing time. She certified as a placenta encapsulation specialist in 2016 and is passionate about educating women of the possible postnatal benefits of this natural resource.
