Toronto Pregnancy, Birth, & Postpartum Family Support

A more mindful approach to pregnancy, labour & delivery.

Being your Doula means being a non-judgmental listener. I want to know how you’re feeling, what you are thinking and what you are going through. Think of me as your belly therapist, waiting and wanting to hear your fears and your hopes. If you need to vent or you just want to share some exciting news, I am your woman!

There is nothing more fulfilling to me than being allowed to have a peek inside your head and support you when you need it the most. If there is anything I have learned from my years of meditation practice, it is that listening is the highest form of intimacy that can be created between you and another person.

Hi, my name is Giovanna.

Long before I gave birth to my own child, this was what I always wanted to do. Even as a child I was obsessed with baby bellies and how it all worked. The gift to grow life from scratch is an amazing blessing and a miraculous journey. And experiencing pregnancy, labour and birth myself taught me everything I needed to know to start my journey as a doula. I love birth. I love pregnancy and my passion is for every woman to be treated with respect, tenderness, and skill during her labor and birth, and for all couples to draw closer together as they celebrate their new families. I thank my daughter everyday for inspiring me to do what I love. She is my greatest teacher.

I loved her pressure techniques for my contractions

Gio is such an amazing person! She made my birth stress free and much more comfortable. She is very intuitive and knew how to help me through all parts of my labour. I loved her pressure techniques for my contractions. I loved how she spoke to help keep me calm and focused. I also loved how she stepped in and advocated for me when I was feeling pain after my epidural. She just always seemed to know what to do.i could not image a birth without her and i will definitely be using her again for baby #2

Dare to say I enjoyed labouring with her…..

My experience with Giovanna was a great one. Dare to say I enjoyed labouring with her. Since I have an older child at home, my husband couldn’t be with me at the hospital at 3 o’clock in the morning. But Giovanna was there. She kept me company, eased my pain and laughed at my bad jokes. She’s also a great photographer and took some beautiful and dramatic pictures as the baby was born. My labour and birth wasn’t easy but through it all she was reassuring and supportive. I didn’t believe in the necessity of having a doula before I met Giovanna, and if we decided to have another child, I will definitely ask her to be my doula again. Thanks Giovanna for all you’ve done for us

She managed to capture the experience so perfectly and we will cherish those memories forever

I first met Gio at a mom and baby class right after we had our first babies. Even before she became a doula, I could tell how caring and compassionate she was. I admire her both as a person and as an entrepreneur. Which is why I was so excited to have her capture the birth of our second son. She was such a calming spirit while attending our birth. She managed to capture the experience so perfectly and we will cherish those memories forever. Thanks Gio!

Gio is an amazing doula…

She was such a huge help postpartum, helping me do things that I had been meaning to do for a while but couldn’t find the time – with two under the age of two I barely have time for anything. She helped me childproof my home, set up a bassinet, allowed me to go shower, taught me how to properly use my baby carrier and shared many useful tips and tricks. Extremely easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and makes you feel calm. I highly recommend her for anyone who is having a baby (or babies). Thank you Gio!”

Giovanna is an absolutely fantastic doula!

Giovanna is an absolutely fantastic doula! I met her a few weeks before the birth and she was always there for me anytime I needed a friend and support. My only wish is that I met her sooner! She provided me resources for placenta encapsulation right after our first visit. She supported me through my sons birth on August 26. My labour came on so quickly, I was texting her one minute saying i think this may be it and that I was going to relax in the shower and within 10 minutes I was barely able to text and ready to get to the hospital asap.She arrived at the hospital so quickly, probably about 10 minutes after I arrived in an ambulance, she stayed my side every moment with words of encouragement and motivation. I am so grateful to have had her support, she has such a calming beautiful spirit. She was very understanding, easy to talk to, comforting and just an awesome knowledgeable woman. It felt like I met a long lost sister. Gio also visited me a couple times soon after the birth and held my son for a couple hours while I had a much-needed bath and nap, went for a walk and helped me pick out a wrap. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula. ♡♡

Best decision I made about my pregnancy

Best decision I made about my pregnancy was to have Gio as my doula. She was such a wonderful support person. Non-judgmental and so relaxed. She was always available to answer all my crazy questions! Her calm presence was a godsend during labour and delivery. I highly recommend!

Gio was a calming presence and helped me feel in control of a situation…

Gio was an amazing woman to work with as my doula for the birth of our son. By my side for the duration of my long labour she was a calming presence and helped me feel in control of a situation that is completely uncontrollable.
As a first time mom, the prospect of child birth was completely overwhelming for me and Gio took me through all possibilities to help me prepare and wrap my head around what was to come. Having her as a resource was a great help for all of the many questions that come up day to day during pregnancy as well.
Thanks so much Gio”
