Marli Ivers

 
Marli Ivers attended her first home birth at 15 years old. This experience so contrasted what she had learned about maternity care in the United States, that Marli decided to become a midwife in order to provide more options to birthing women. She has since attended over 100 births as a doula, birthing assistant, and primary student midwife. She is in her third and final year at the Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery and has been apprenticing under Nicole Morales for over 2 years. Marli is now accepting midwifery clients under the supervision. This means that Marli would provide all prenatal and postpartum care with the guidance of Nicole and would also be the primary midwife for the birth with Nicole assisting her. Clients who are interested in this option are welcome to contact her at marlihivers@gmail.com
