I am a specialist in grief, loss and trauma encompassing the entire spectrum of women's maternal mental health. I help women(and their partners) with healthy pregnancies, postpartum depression and anxiety, pregnancy loss, terminations and infertility - whether through stillbirth, miscarriage, late term loss, IVF/IUI failures, selective termination or pregnancy releases (aka abortion). Sadly, 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and 1 in 8 will have trouble with conception. I blend psychology, ritual, spirituality, reiki, energy healing, guided meditations and more to help facilitate and support women, couples and families.
I also specialize in pregnancy after a loss - subsequent pregnancies can be frought with a multitude of emotional anxieties and guilt. I am an out of network provider, however if you have a PPO, you will receive up to 60% reimbursement of my fee.
When a pregnency has ended unexpectedly, or a fetal diagnosis of significant abnormalities is made, or a baby has died after birth, families need specialized counsel. I can come to the hospital and guide you through the time sensitive decisions you will have to make.

Ivy Love Margulies's Groups

Miscarriage Support Group

This group is for women who are grieving miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn loss, selective reduction or pregnancy termination. Nearly one-third of all pregnancies end in some form of loss. Such losses often fall into the category of "disenfranchised grief" - grief that is not fully acknowledged by society and for which there are few support systems, traditions or institutions to help. You do not have to go through the grieving process alone. Many women are surprised by the depth of the pain and range of emotions they are experiencing - it is normal to be experiencing whatever you are experiencing.

More about this group

Stillbirth Couples Support Group

This group is for COUPLES who are greiving their deceased baby(s).This is a wonderful opportunity for healing not only as a couple, but for the men to find a support system as well. I create a sacred space where everyone can feel understood, held and supported through a grief that needs to be acknowledged, a baby that needs to be honored, while learning compassion for your journey and your partner's journey. Men and women do grieve differently. We light candles in memory of your baby and I use guided meditations to promote feelings of calm and safety.
