I didn’t realize how much pre-birth work I needed to do but I felt very confident and prepared thanks to Ivy! She helped me work though suppressed trauma that I didn’t even realize was affecting me at a subconscious level. Ivy is not only an incredible doula but she was also my confidant, life-coach, soul-sister and helped to mother me with so much compassion as I became a first time mother.

She is respectful, loving, funny, spiritual… And not only does she have deep knowledge and tons of experience in all things childbirth related, but she also has an impeccable intuition and an amazing way of empowering women and helping them prepare for the journey of a lifetime and making it one hell of a magical experience. Anyone would be lucky to have her.

Customer reviews
We were struggling with processing our emotions, and understanding what we could control and what we needed to let go of. Ivy helped us identify and manage anxiety triggers and develop routines and techniques to work through them. She also facilitated communication between us, which was very helpful.
