Liv was perfect! We love her so much and our baby has a special bond with her! She came over for our postnatal visit after the birth and my son instantly knew it was her in the room. He was so calm with her and she definitely has a way with babies. I really appreciated how much attention Liv gave to even the smallest details in my birthing room. She cared about ALL of it….the music…the sounds….the sights….the smells…and it ALL mattered. My first labor stalled out and I had to get pitocin, but this labor was SO different. When we got to the hospital, before Liv got there I could feel myself start to freak out and my contractions really spaced out. I was so scared, but Liv was there very soon. As soon as she was in the room, I could feel my body relax and the fear and anxiety was just leaving my body! My labor picked right back up and the nurses were shocked lol. Liv made the room so peaceful and we put my birth art on the wall right in front of me. It changed everything and my son was born 4 hours later all natural!! My husband says, “Liv is the magic labor pill!!!!!” Hahaha and now we can’t help but tell everyone about our experience with her!
As I sit here and reflect on the birth of my daughter, Layla, I remember just how special that day was. I truly could not have done it without my doula, Olivia!!!! A friend of friend recommended her and I quickly stalked her on facebook. I felt like I already knew her even though we had never met. When we finally did meet, I knew she was the perfect match for me. She stayed up with me so many nights when I had early labor contractions. She talked me through the whole thing and kept me calm so that I wouldn’t go to the hospital way too early because I did not want that to happen. I also did not want to be induced or have any interventions. After days and days, it was finally time to head to the hospital. Olivia met me there and instead of going straight in we walked around the parking lot and told funny stories. Which I know now laughter is a good source of oxytocin. My contractions kept picking up so we went inside the hospital. Two hours later, my baby girl was born. Olivia taught me exactly how to push, she taught me how to breathe and how to move my baby down. I know for sure I would have gone to the hospital way too early without Olivia guiding me at home during my WEEK of early labor contractions…it was the hardest thing ever, but so worth it and Layla was born in her perfect timing.
I never knew about doulas until I met Liv. When I got pregnant, my husband and I knew we had to hire her. She spent 6 hours with us one evening answering all of our questions after a prenatal yoga session. It was crazy how many lies my husband and I were believing about pregnancy and birth. That night changed our whole perspective on childbirth. I became a total “birth nerd” after that. My husband and I went into the birth feeling like we had the power and that my body could do this with or without the hospital! I felt soooooo alive when I was giving birth! We HIGHLY recommend Liv! She really does go above and beyond for her clients!
Liv is an amazing doula. My husband, mother, mother-n-law and I can attest to Liv’s sincerity and knowledge when it comes to birth. She instantly makes you feel safe and empowered. She told us at our consult that she hopes to bring peace to every birth she attends. She did just that. Her peaceful presence during the birth of our son was just what I needed. Being a first time mom there was so much fear around my pregnancy and birth. I hoped to complete childbirth naturally with no medication or epidural. Liv was so helpful in educating us in what to expect throughout the pregnancy, the childbirth process itself, and even what to expect postpartum. My fears were constantly dispelled by my conversations with Liv. Throughout the birth she continued to dispel fear. She kept a professional attitude and worked well with the staff of the hospital. I will say that I found her labor coaching and knowledge to be superior to my nurses, and much more kind. Liv was quick to suggest laboring positions, ask questions and make suggestions that were in my best interest. She also provided music, lights, aromatherapy, and massage with her handmade labor salves. She kept me believing in myself! So many times I wanted to give up, but Liv kept me going! My dream came true and it was better than anything I had imagined. My son was born naturally after 15 hours of labor. I couldn’t have done it without Liv! Our whole family feels like she is one of us!
Olivia!! Where do we begin??? How did I know you before this birth??? To anyone who is wondering if this girl is worth it!!! SHE IS. My mindset was so set in BEING ALLOWED!! Olivia put the power back in my hands!!! I changed providers because I KNOW MY POWER!! Birth matters and I was not going to set myself up for failure by working with the SAME provider that always told me “oh you can do that” only to change their minds when I was in labor!!! I KNOW MY POWER!!! I reached out to Liv and she was the ONLY ONE in my corner, besides some other crunchy mamas on my facebook group. She helped me discover my voice and my tribe! I thought so many times that it was kinda crazy to invest so much into my birth and my provider. But IT WAS NOT. My birth experience was magical and wonderful because I chose to invest in it! ALL decisions were MINE and I was supported and heard! No one pulled the rug out from under me!! No one in my family has had a natural birth, or a doula, or better yet a HOME BIRTH….but I am changing my legacy!! My son, Asher, was born at midnight in my arms at my house!! Thank you Olivia! You changed my life!!!!!!
Where do I begin! It all started at the beginning of my pregnancy with buying a few face items from the eden house store and fell in love. Olivia is so genuine and really cares about what’s best for you. I ended up buying a bunch of jars of belly cream because it was so amazing! I’ve also used her house aloe blend(AMAZING!) her mama blend and a roll on blend and a few other items. Everything was wonderful. After meeting Olivia at a shop she had set up at for the day, I told her I wanted her to send me her info on her being my Doula for this pregnancy. She did and she came over for the consultation. She gave me hope and peace about wanting to deliver naturally after have an unplanned csection with my first child. My husband and I HAD TO HAVE OLIVIA as our Doula! We had to! We then hired her and we built our own package, prenatal with the labor and delivery and a prenatal massage in there too. Through the last half of my pregnancy when we hired Olivia, she answered EVERY question I asked, which was a lot. Was caring, loving, kind, and sincere. She was like a built in best friend through pregnancy. Oh and her prenatal massages are AMAZING! She cane and set up the table at my home, had relaxing music, used her eden house products and it was exactly what I needed. Then for my birth. My water ended up breaking prematurely and my hopes of having a water birth went out the window. Olivia Came to the hospital at 2 am and my contractions ended up stopping. She was there for hours with us. We chose to go home because nothing was happening. 24 hours later we went back into the hospital to be induced and Olivia came again with us and we told her we weren’t leaving without this baby! So she stayed with us for hours and hours she held a massaging tool to my lower back through EVERY contraction. She encouraged me and my husband. She saw me in my most vulnerable state and stood by me. When I couldn’t go anymore she stood by me, and made sure I was making every decision with a clear mind and not just in the moment. She was absolutely incredible and my husband and I both said MANY times that there is no way we could have done it without her with us. And that man she deserves WAY more than what she charges ! She’s texting me weekly after birth checking in on me and my mental and physical state. I also ordered placenta services from her, which if you’re sceptical , DO IT!!! If you are thinking of hiring a Doula, hire Olivia! She is a gift from God. We are beyond blessed for her and what she offered to us through pregnancy, birth and post partum. I’m forver grateful!! She is the best!
I booked a prenatal yoga session with Olivia after dealing with near debilitating sciatica pain that had flared up after moving houses while pregnant. It was to the point where I was crying just lifting my leg to go from braking to the gas pedal while driving. After talking to Olivia about where my pain was, she took me through an hour long yoga sequence and showed me some perfect stretches to continue doing on a regular basis to ease the pain. It made the WORLD of a difference!! That was about 2 months ago and I’ve been nearly pain free since starting those stretches!! So much relief, I wonder why I hadn’t booked a session sooner. I know now for the next pregnancy!
My favorite thing about Olivia and Eden House was the birth art she had me and my husband do in the childbirth education classes. I couldn’t believe how something like coloring and painting could bring me and him so much closer together but it did! It also gave me a focus and a direction that I did not have before that day. She went through all of the colors with us and taught us about birth being connected to everybody’s artistic and intuitive side!! I learned so much about how art can be spiritual and the colors were symbolic and also prophetic!! All the colors we picked that day were just what we needed on the day our daughter decided to make her grand entrance. We brought it to the hospital with us and I remember looking at it whenever I felt like I was going to lose it and it was just what I needed!!! It was crazy miraculous!!! We love you Olivia and Eden House!
Olivia, I LOVE YOU OH SO MUCH. being a naive, young, first time mom; I did all the research I could about birth. I knew from day one that i wanted a doula. You were SO informative, helpful and supportive of my birth plan. You made me feel so listened to and empowered (which is something i struggle with feeling on my own)! I can’t thank you enough for all the help, knowledge and strength you gave me!
Eden House provided me with amazing services during my whole pregnancy, birth, and post partum! Helped me get optimal fetal positioning through yoga and helped me with my skin with natural soaps and skin butters! I now only use bum butter on my baby and he has never gotten a single diaper rash! I got some of the products as gifts for my friends like the Lullaby balm for baby’s bedtime routine and mama’s chill pill as well and they loved them! I hope more people start buying Eden house for themselves and switch to natural products from a local creator like Olivia. It’s perfect because she’s a doula and an (almost) midwife so she knows exactly what you need no matter if it’s birth or pregnancy!
My whole thought process when it came to pregnancy, labor and birth before EdenHouse was very unhealthy. I was afraid and naive about pregnancy and what a healthy pregnancy and birthing process looked like. Over the course of my pregnancy, Olivia encouraged me to seek out the fears that I had and pair them with truth (medical and spiritual). Through prenatal yoga, I was able to learn relaxation techniques that helped both my husband and I connect with my body and each other to help handle labor pain. Thanks to Olivia, my birth was the most amazing experience! All of the fear I had was turned into positive affirmations and my husband and I were connected in a way that we had never been before. My heart has been opened to the strength that women possess and the beauty and uniqueness of bringing a new life earth-side! We’re so incredibly thankful for Eden House and Olivia!!
I was so glad to have Olivia as my doula for the birth of second child, Clayton. She was a tremendous help to my husband and I before and after the birth. The prenatal massage she provided was incredible and helped ease the growing discomforts of my 3rd trimester. She also helped a lot with my first feedings and assisted me in getting a proper latch, since there was not a lactation consultant available. Olivia is extremely knowledgeable about pregnancy and birth and she conducts herself in a very professional manner. She was so kind to everyone involved in my birth and she brought light to the whole birth experience! ”
I am a birth photographer and I have had the pleasure to work alongside with Liv a few times. She truly is amazing to her clients, and everyone around them. She is so gentle, positive, calm and nurturing to everyone in the birthing space. If you consider hiring Liv, I highly recommend her.
“I loved having Olivia at the birth of my son, Shane. I chose to give birth in a hospital setting and Olivia’s gifts flowed effortlessly there. She had a very peaceful presence and helped to maintain a calm atmosphere throughout the labor and birth. She really took my comfort seriously and I was especially impressed with the strength of her double hip squeeze; it helped me so much during the transition period of my labor. She stayed with me the whole way through, right in the thick of it, while also respecting the intimacy of my family. I would highly recommend using Olivia as your doula! You will not regret it!”
“Olivia was just the support my husband and I needed for the birth of our beautiful son! From the moment I met her, I knew I wanted her to be part of my birth. She is a natural born doula and I know my birth wouldn’t have been the same without her...she helped us achieve the natural birth we had always dreamed of. Having her know-how, her guidance, and her peaceful and compassionate presence there was really reassuring. As soon as she walked in the door, she was hands on and easing my discomforts. She did guided breathing with me, massaged me, and verbally affirmed me in ways that made me actually believe I COULD REALLY DO THIS! She really helped me overcome the fear of birth and trust my body! She supported my husband by showing him massage and rebozo techniques to incorporate into the labor...those also helped tremendously! He was so appreciative of her giving him tips and boosts of confidence along the way! The whole experience was just perfect!! If you’re thinking about getting a doula (and you should), Olivia’s your girl!”
"My birth experience was wonderful! I has such a great team around me and everything went well! It was an incredible and empowering experience. I'm so glad to have had Morgan holding my hand and supporting my legs. Making me eat and drink afterward was priceless! She is already a great doula and has such a bright future in this precious work!"
"Morgan brought such a warming ease and comforting love to my fourth delivery. The constant reminder that I have someone to understand and help with what I'm going through is more relieving than anything! She knew and understood what I needed most without me having to say so."
