Ashley’s Bio ~
As a childbirth, breastfeeding, and parenting mentor I recognize a few important things that guide my service to families: the informed choices you make based on accurate information will trump the fear that like all this bebe-centric-excitement can bring about; having an advocate who serves you and your partner exclusively is invaluable; and your first night home as a new family will set the course of the rest of your life together. My doula partnership has grown in the last decade to grout these certainties into the beautiful picture your birthing experience paints. I provide physical and emotional support, as well as resources for education and advocacy, as you navigate the policies and procedures of your birth environment.
I fully support you and your partner in the decisions you make for your birth. Well before birth we will explore the choices you have in childbirth and parenting, and how to make informed decisions that affirm your preferences. I believe in the power of choice and enthusiastically support the choices you make. I am available by for questions throughout your pregnancy and on-call to you exclusively during your Birth. My specialty is working with families to create informed expectations and hone superpowers so that challenges can be avoided – – and every family I have had the pleasure to serve has defined our working relationship a bit differently.
My background and training are focused on maternal-fetal care and infant development. It is my goal that in our time together we can define and celebrate your roadmap for a calm and productive path to birth and parenthood, ensuring that your time as a new family is spent in happiness with your bebe and each other.
