Ashley is a DONA certified birth and postpartum doula who specializes in newborn care and sleep education.
I started my doula journey in 2015. Before that my first birth experiences were with animals while working at a vet clinic. My friends used to call me the doggy doula. At the time it was just a funny nickname; I had no idea it would foreshadow a new career.
I decided to do more research about doulas after I had a dream that I delivered a baby. I learned that they are advocates, nurturers and educators. Doulas assist families before, during, and after childbirth. It’s so gratifying to help others during such a special and memorable time.
In my spare time, I enjoy cuddling my pets, spending time with family, and enjoying a glass of wine with my husband.
Talk to you soon!
