Meet our Birth Doulas
Ivania is a Birth Visionary, Sacred Labor Doula, Childbirth Educator, Lactation Educator, Baby Signing Time Instructor, and an advocate of Gentle Parenting. First-hand experience as a single parent on the struggles, lack of support, and challenges of parenthood let Ivania to search for outlets and resources to provide her with support and guidance through pregnancy and her early stages of parenthood; however, she found nothing that met her needs or that was easily available. Since then, she has been determined to provide other parents with that support and guidance she once sought. Keiki Nest was founded in 2014 and is driven by Ivania's passion on educating and supporting families during their pregnancy journey. She wants to incorporate the traditions of Sacred Birth into the modern world by honoring, respecting, and empowering women through this rite of passage of bringing baby earth-side.
Ivania is also a United States Army Veteran and currently resides in Woodbridge, VA with her husband and two delightful daughters.
