Give birth to a life you love

I’m Ivy Joeva, your personal consultant for birth and beyond

Having assisted women and families birth at home and in-hospital since 2009, I firmly believe “EVERY birth is a good birth.”  That’s why I’m passionate about encouraging you to find your own voice and values, armed with accurate information and a strong arsenal of tools for labor and life.

My decade of experience in the fields of mind-body medicine, women’s health and integrative nutrition has taught me:  your body is the teacher, and has the answers.  I support you in attuning to your body’s messages and innate healing abilities.  Just as no two births are alike, no two women are alike.  That’s why our work together is uniquely tailored to your needs, utilizing a variety of modalities from both contemporary and holistic medicine.

I’m here for you, as your personal consultant for fertility, birth and beyond. From my experiences assisting women in childbirth since 2009, what I know for sure is:

“A woman births as she lives.”

Meaning that the same practices that prepare you for birth, support you to live your most joyful, abundant life. And by living this way, you naturally lay the foundation for having a positive birth experience. Just like life, birth can be unpredictable and at times mysterious. No one can control how everything will unfold, but by choosing to be prepared, supported, and resourced, you can claim your birth as a transformational rite of passage.

Why do I care about offering the tools you need for a satisfying birth and life? Because I believe that confidant and thriving mothers create happier families and a kinder, more peaceful world. And I’m passionate about both facilitating healing, and shedding light on important issues facing our world today. Through my experiences traveling both nationally and internationally as a journalist, I’ve seen first-hand that the way we raise our kids, becomes the world in which we live. You make some of your most important parenting decisions for your child, before you give birth.

Birth is not only the birth of your baby, but a portal to being your most powerful, creative self. My wish for you is that you embody the woman you were born to be, trusting your heart, your body, and your mind.   It’s my honor and privilege to hold the lantern light for you as you find your way… through giving birth to your family, to your most radiant self, and to a life you love!
