grounded wisdom and support - whatever your path

 

Walk with Me

Pregnancy, birth, and the weeks after are times of powerful transformation. While this journey is a normal and natural part of the human experience, your journey is unique. Whether you birth at home or at a hospital; whether you conceive with just a look or struggle with fertility; whether your baby is birthed from your body or another's you and your family deserve support.

As a doula, I offer physical and emotional comfort measures, natural pain coping techniques, and birth empowerment. I recognize the unique challenges facing families dealing with fertility and alternative conception methods. I provide a trauma-informed approach and work collaboratively within hospital systems. I am also prepared to support families through unexpected loss and complications including stillborn labor and termination of pregnancy.

I only interviewed one doula before I knew I had found my match, and that was Ashley. From the very beginning, she was organized and an excellent communicator. During our prenatal visit, she asked thoughtful questions and went into detail about what I was hoping and wanting from my birth experience. She was incredibly respectful and supportive of everything I told her and wanted to find out the best way she could support me and my family through this journey - and boy, did she! Ashley offers a gentle, calm, and grounded presence that makes you feel at ease but also seen, heard, and understood. When it came time to start making decisions about how to progress during my labor, she helped me feel grounded and confident in my choices. My birth experience was nothing but positive, and I know that having Ashley as a part of my team made that possible.
