Dr. Ivy,
I can’t thank you enough for your guidance and wisdom on my journey to motherhood through IVF. I am incredibly grateful for you. Love,


Dr. Ivy,
A million thank you’s for being there at a time when I needed guidance, compassion and light. Our work together helped me to manage my anxiety and fear about a subsequent pregnancy after three miscarriages. I could not have done it without your support.
Sending you much love,


Dr. Ivy,
I cannot begin to express how much your day retreat meant to me. It was life changing, and I feel as if I am really not alone, probably for the first time since my daughter, Isabella's stillbirth. I know people have told me I am not alone, but I never felt it until the retreat. Being with those women and connecting the way we did has honestly changed me, and I have you to thank. I will always be grateful to you. Your love and support has saved my life.


Dear Dr. Ivy,
Thank you for creating this beautiful day retreat. Your Tibetan bowl, your guided meditations, your wisdom, your perspective, your kindness, your angel cards, your listening and for your calming presence. These are the memories I take away and your passion for your work inspires me to help others. Thank you with all my heart.


Dr. Ivy,
You are such a beautiful, kind, generous spirit - Your ability to make people feel at ease - your trusting nature makes people feel so comfortable to talk to you. I feel so honored to have met you, as you know you will forever leave an imprint on my heart. Thank you for helping me see my daughter’s little brother as my baby - one that I WILL bring home.

Dearest Ivy,
I am so blessed to have met you. I am always so sad and so sorry to meet others who have suffered such loss so young. You give me hope which is something I have battled with for a long time. I am learning to forgive myself and offer myself self-compassion. Thank you for sharing so much with me, for your
openness, honesty, hugs and support.
All my love,


Dear Dr. Ivy,
I was skeptical of many things before attending your beautiful holistic bereavement day retreat. Thank you for helping me learn the beauty of opening your heart to possibility and the unknown. The work you are doing is making a difference in all of us and will be touching others through us. You are making the world a more beautiful space.
With gratitude,


Dear Dr. Ivy,
You have been so wonderful to me during this retreat. I can’t express in words how your passion inspires me to love and care for myself. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and encouragement with me. Thank you for all the work you have done to make this retreat possible. And thank you for teaching me that Tibetan bowl ringing is my soul sound! Something about it resonates so deeply within me. The sound invokes so much peace within me.


Dearest Ivy,
You are a goddess of light to those in darkness. You are love in abundance. There are no words in grief that can make a difference. You are the presence that offers assistance. My late son, Joshie, wrote: “Hope is when your heart sees and hears beyond what your eyes and ears believe to be true.” With love, joy and thanks for your presence in my life and beyond,


Dear Ivy,
Thank you for giving yourself so freely to others. Yours is a beautiful soul one to be admired and cherished. I’m so thankful for you, you have created the most beautiful space for women to be with women and hold each other up when it feels as though the foundations that made us are cracked and broken. Together we can move mountains. You are an inspiration.
Lots of love,


Dear Ivy,
I can’t thank you enough for coordinating this retreat. Hearing your calm voice each morning has been so incredibly relaxing and emotionally moving. (Yes, you made me cry) Your influence on me, and on us all has been profound. It has been an honor to meet you and share in this healing retreat. Much love and light,


Dear Ivy,
Thank you for your serene gentle facilitation during our time together. And, thank you for your healing, grounding, wonderful presence. You gave me so much to take home with me to continue the momentum and motivation to make changes in my life to love and honor myself. You are a beautiful soul, your light shines bright. With love,


Dear Ivy,
Thank you for bringing your incredible spirit and sharing your knowledge. You taught me mindfulness and empowered me as I move forward in my life’s journey. You taught me to love myself and cherish our deceased babies openly and in our hearts. You are a beautiful example of how incredibly rewarding life as a loss mother can be. Eternally grateful,


Dear Ivy,
You have lived a 1000 lifetimes. You have such wisdom, so much heart and an incredible spirit. Thank you for holding us and for creating this sacred circle of women and sacred space of healing. Love,


Dr. Ivy,
Thank you for helping us these last couple of years as we struggled with our grief with our daughter, Sabrina’s stillbirth, and our anxiety and fear about our subsequent pregnancy with our son. Having you and your support group where we could talk about what we were going through with people who knew what it was like was very important to us. Here is a picture of our son, we feel very lucky to have him here with us, he is Sabrina’s younger brother. Love,
