Pre and Postnatal
What my client's have to say about their experience
"Ivy was our “Mary Poppins”. We are parents of a set of twins and we knew from the beginning we would need support with building routine and getting sleep. We wanted to enjoy the process and not be in that classic new parent fog.
Ivy enabled that and so much more. She has a way of working that allowed us to really step into being the parents we wanted to be. Our kids were sleeping through the night within 4 months - and not because of sleep training - but because of easy and gentle routine that everyone could easily follow. There is no question that what we learned and did right from the beginning set a great foundation for good sleep habits and self care all around. Our kids are now 2.75 years old and while Ivy is no longer actively involved in their care, she is very much part of our family. Without a doubt, she has a remarkable gift and will make your life tremendously easier. Her services are worth every penny."

“We were looking for a doula for the delivery of our first baby and Ivy was recommended to us by a friend. After meeting with her, we knew she would be able to help us develop our birth plan and achieve the natural birth that we wanted. Ivy made the labour and delivery such a positive experience that we knew we needed her for our second baby too! Ivy is very calm and encouraging. She is very knowledgeable about the process of labour, which allows her to suggest many different comfort measures. She is also very helpful after birth, offering suggestions for breastfeeding and postpartum recovery. Ivy was a key part of both of our birth experiences, and she is now a beloved auntie to our kids! I really don’t know how I would have gotten through the birth of my two babies without her!”
"Hiring Ivy to be our prenatal and postpartum doula was one of the best decisions we made. As a first time mom I was nervous about the labour and delivery experience. She was so informative from the first time I met with her. She was able to answer any and all of my questions. It was comforting and very apparent that she really knew her stuff! She has this amazing energy, is so kind, fun and loving. I felt so confident having her by our side on our journey to becoming new parents. We ended up experiencing a longer, more intense labour than expected, and I honestly don't know how me or my husband would have managed without her support. She advocated and supported me in ways I didn't know I would need, and we will be forever grateful for the support we received from her. She went above and beyond for us through our experience, she even took some beautiful first photos of our baby capturing those precious early moments. She truly cares for you and your family and followed up with me as much as I needed postpartum, which was tremendously helpful towards my healing. I cannot say how much I love this girl and if you happen to find her, you'll be lucky to have her serve your family in this way ❤"
"When I found out I was pregnant with twins I was elated but also terrified! There were so many things to prepare for and being an indecisive and also anxious person I decided I needed help. Ivy was referred to us by another mom from the Twins and Triplets Association and I can’t tell you how glad we are that we called her. Ivy has such a calm demeanour and helped us prepare for the twins arrival by providing a wealth of information on everything from labour and birth, to what we need to buy, to preparing us for sleeping/feeding schedule. She really helped us understand that we have the right to ask questions and do what we are comfortable with. Before and after the babies were born she came for regular visits and was always prepared to discuss anything that we needed help with at that particular time. I had so many questions about breastfeeding and blocked ducts and what’s normal or abnormal and she was always there to support. She never made us feel rushed and her response time is incredible! I honestly can’t say enough good things about Ivy and I would encourage anyone to contact her for pre and postnatal care."
