Birth Photographer - The beauty of birth should be captured to remember always My passion is meditation I love to offer and share my meditation practice with others, especially expecting mothers or families in the postpartum period.

Doula & Birth Photographer The transformation from woman to mother is amazing. It has to be one of the most beautiful transformations I have ever witnessed. It surprises me, how little attention is given to a woman who has just completed the momentous journey into motherhood. You see, one of the most important aspects of my job as a Doula is to mother the mother. When all eyes are on that sweet little bundle of joy, my eyes are on you. I will be there to guide you through this crazy, beautiful world we call motherhood. Infant care, postpartum care, and breastfeeding help are always available. If you need to rest, or just a shower, I will be there. If you’re nervous about baby’s first bath, I can help you. A new mother should never feel like she is alone. I will always be grateful, honoured and privileged to be your Doula. And if I could tell you thank you every day I would. Every birth touches my heart. Every birth brings a lesson, and I am grateful for finding my purpose in life.

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.
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 labor came on so quickly, I was texting her one minute saying i think this may be it and I'm 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 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.
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
Gio is an amazing doula. She attended my home for a post birth session and was such a huge help. She helped 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. Helped me set up a bassinet, allowed me to go shower, taught me how to properly use my baby carrier and gave me 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!
