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. So, please, reach out to me as little or as often as you need it.
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.

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!”
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”
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 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!
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!
I love getting to know you. I take so much enjoyment from meeting new people and spending time with them. That is one of the main reasons I became a doula. Meeting for coffee/tea dates or meeting to have a manicure or a pedicure are amazing ways to chat, bond and just spend time together… >> Read More
“A Precipitous labor is defined as expulsion of the fetus within less than 3 hours of commencement of regular contractions” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4285060/ I had the pleasure of photographing an amazing, precipitous birth. In my career as a birth doula and photographer this far, this doesn’t happen very often. Luckily (for me and the mothers!), this is the 2nd … >> Read More
Every birth is different and whether it is your first child or your second. It is hard to know what to expect. There can be a lot of fears of the unknown and many new mothers all feel the same way, so I decided to reach out to mothers personally to ask them what their… >> Read More
