Hello! I'm so happy life has led you here.

I'm Liv, the creator of Eden House, bursting with a purpose to help create, serve, and nourish the earth by empowering women to confidently walk through life rooted in truth and an unshakable identity. Eden House was designed to serve that purpose and was built from the spillings of my heart as I've discovered what I like to call Eden

It seems like all the moments of my life and my own personal journey of discovering Eden have been working together to birth this space — a dream I've been carrying in my heart since I was 15. I've been learning that the Creator likes to work in process, in the waiting, in the slow unfolding. We are given dreams, not solely for chasing, if for chasing at all; but for leaning into, trusting, resting in something bigger than us. And I guess that's how I found myself so transfixed on this idea of Eden. In the quiet stillness, dreaming about a dream, I found an invitation into Something and Someone Greater than all my dreams combined. 

That's what I'm calling Eden; an invitation into the heart of the Creator. A place to behold, become, and be. A place where all the striving, selfish ambition, identity/purpose confusion, fear, doubt, and to-do lists that keep us absent from everyone and everything [except our social accounts] disappear. A place to live in intended identity and explore endless beauty and perfect intimacy. A place to discover the movement of stillness.  A place to plant your feet and build your house, so that life is experienced in the fullness of it's miraculous, creative, and wild design. A Something Greater, Heaven on Earth kind of life. With a house [body+soul] inhabited by peace, beauty, holiness, joy, goodness, love. A house intimate with a Creator. A house filled to the brim with power. A house set on a hill, dripping with Light. A house that bears fruit in all seasons. A house that turns deserts into gardens. A house that might just look a little bit like Eden. An Eden House. 

I love names and finding the purpose in the seemingly insignificant. My name, Liv, is derived from the latin word for "olive tree"; which is a symbol of fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity and signifies an offer of peace. Neat, right?! I've carried those simple words, fruitful, beauty, dignity, and offer of peace, with me throughout life and they're at the foundation of everything I put my hands to.

I currently live a joy-filled, rewilded life in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA with my husband and best friend, Michael. Together we like to make music, go on hikes with our dog, Titan, and explore the best brunch spots in the city; biscuits anyone?! You'll find that I spend most of my days drinking way too much coffee [because babies aren't on that 9-5 time clock, ha!] and serving the families of my community as a professional doula, aspiring midwife, mentor, yogi, herbal beauty crafter, and friend! I'm fueled by my passion (and lots of coffee) to see women create, birth, and build their families on a foundation of evidence-based education, empowerment, unconditional love, and total freedom. I owe my love of birth and family to my mother, who instilled in me the irreplaceable beauty of babies, the belief that birth is a body + soul + spirit experience, and the art of true mothering. 

Becoming and working as a Certified Professional Doula is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things I have ever done in my life. I have attended and served over 150 birth experiences in the community of Metro Atlanta! I love this work and I am devoted to building upon my academic foundations through continued coursework to better serve my clients. In 2017, I decided to enroll in Midwives College of Utah to pursue becoming a Certified Professional Midwife. While obtaining this degree, I have the pleasure of being an apprentice midwife for DawningLife Midwifery. A dream come true. 

I'm confident that no matter what brought you to Eden House - pregnancy, birth, yoga, herbal goods, or just a friend passing through - you won't leave without bumping into a seed of worth, peace, and beauty, that will bear fruit for years to come!

Hi! I’m Elli! I was born and raised in a small-town right outside of Atlanta, Georgia. I have always been an old soul - I like anything vintage and enjoy getting creative while blasting Tom Petty or Queen. My love for creativity landed me in the world of cosmetology, but life shifted (in the most beautiful way) and I found out I was pregnant with my first daughter, Lily. I was never the same! In 2010, I married my husband, Jeremiah and shortly after we purchased my childhood home and continued in building a family of our own. I love the feeling of family and the feeling of home. Although don’t get me wrong, 6 kiddos later…my home and the feelings (laundry + toddlers) within it aren’t always feeling lovely! But this where coffee comes into play. Chasing babies + sipping caramel lattes + capturing moments. Yep, this is how I spend my days.

Building, birthing, and raising 6 children alongside my husband, has taught us the beauty of true community. And to me, community is a place where we come to not only be supported ourselves but to extend beyond ourselves and support others. With each pregnancy and birth that I have had, the more I have become aware of what I have always been created to do - to serve women through their journey into motherhood. I believe from my own birth stories, that pregnancy, birth, and motherhood are the most transformative experiences in a woman’s life, should she allow them to be. And those three things - pregnancy, birth, and motherhood - are a package deal, building upon the other to fulfill a purpose beyond a woman’s wildest dreams. (Yes, even better than the “wild” dream of a spotless house or full nights sleep.)

Speaking of wild dreams, in 2017 I decided to put action to one. I have always had a love for photography and capturing the heart moments of birth + motherhood. However, I hated that photographers are often disconnected to the actual moments they are capturing. (“Fly on the wall” is the token term that comes to mind.) And don’t get me wrong, that works for some people. I just know for me, my heart is burning for more than the snap of the camera. I want to support with women. I want to build community with women. I want to be hands on serving women. Becoming a Certified Doula is the next step in this journey and I am looking forward to the apprenticeship with Eden House as well as my training through Birth Arts International.

Hello! I’m Morgan! My road to becoming a doula started before I even had the words to explain it. I grew up in a loving family of very strong and powerful women and mothers. This upbringing is no doubt the foundation of what I have come to know as my purpose in life. A purpose calling me to be in the service of women and their families. What better way to do that than to serve right at the root of it all? Pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. In my opinion, it all starts there.

This calling only grew stronger and stronger, so in 2018 I decided to enroll in the Birth Arts International Doula Certification Program. As a student of BIA, I am further equipping myself with heart and hand tools to ensure that every mother I work with has the birth she desires. I firmly believe that every mother’s journey is as unique as they are. Every mother deserves to be listened to, empowered, and respected in every part of the childbearing year. I intend to fulfill that belief and provide a safe space for each individual process to unfold.

I live a very blessed life with my enormous family. We love to love everyone and everything, so we spend our days doing just that everywhere we go. We are happy at any place that fits us all - (party of 26 and counting)! When I am not serving my community as a doula, you may find me collecting vinyl records or enjoying a warm weathered day at the lake. I keep it pretty simple. I also love books! Right now I am reading and soaking up all that I can about the childbearing year. You can never know too much about pregnancy, births, and babies, right? 

I believe birth is an intimate, honored, and sacred journey. And nothing brings me more joy than the opportunity to serve that journey.
