Client Testimonials for Alison Iven

Thanks god for Alison.

I had several prenatal depression & anxiety.  I admit that I was such a mess. It was during my last month when I couldn't just deal alone & looked for a doula. Alison understood what I was going through & really tried to support me without any judgement, which was exactly what I needed at that moment. 

I went through scheduled induction 2 weeks before my due date. I went through every possible induction process for 40+ hours including failed induction, which led me to a c section. Honestly I dont think I would survive those crazy hours without Alison. While my husband was sleeping away, Alison was there for me through my long induction process. Every time I had to make decision, Alison was there to make sure that I only made decisions that I was ok with. I ended up having a beautiful girl via c section.l after 40 hours of induction.

Birth can be crazy & terrifying experience. Having Alison with me helped me to go through those moments. 

Again, thanks god for Alison.
