Birth Doula Services
Prenatal Yoga Package
I have woven a combination of self care, birth preparation, and strength into my prenatal yoga package to help you prepare for birth and beyond.
Doula Support Package
Perfect for the mother committed to her education, personal development, and preparation surrounding her pregnancy and birth. This personalized support includes 2 prenatal visits, childbirth education, unlimited messaging with me throughout your pregnancy, and 1 postpartum session.
Childbirth Education Course
This comprehensive childbirth education course provides you with up to date, evidence based information that will guide you confidently through pregnancy and to a fearless and autonomous birth.
Your body knows what to do, I am here to remind you of that.
I am a mother with my own birth experience. That doesn’t make me the expert of all bodies, just my own. Just as you are the expert of your body.
If you are ready to make big decisions in your birth, and you value education and awareness around your options, I am your doula.
From intuitive healing & nurturing to physical comfort & emotional support, my goal is to ensure you have a safe, empowering, and beautiful birth experience.

What makes Ashley the right choice for me?
My birth services are not a “one size fits all” package. My unique program is intentionally curated around your specific goals. That can be anything from building trust between you and your provider/birth team, overcoming fear, an evidence based birth education, safe and healthy yoga postures to help you feel good and move your baby into position; anything you can think of, I’ll work it into YOUR package.
What are the benefits of prenatal yoga?
Yoga is a truly holistic practice, integrating mind, body, and soul. To practice yoga during pregnancy is an awesome experience with benefits that go beyond birth and into postpartum.
Some benefits include and are not limited to: helps manage stress and anxiety, reduces and alleviates common aches and pains, increases strength and flexibility of muscle groups to prepare the body for labor, promotes connection to your baby, and can reduce recovery time.
My role as a doula is to show you the tools and resources you need to:
Make your own informed decisions about your body, baby, and birth
Advocate for yourself if necessary
Effectively communicate your needs
Question all of your birth options and choose the ones that are in line with your birth goals
My role as a doula is not to:
Make decisions for you
Come between you and your provider
let my own opinions and preferences interfere with yours
Walk out on you if plans change (ie: transferring to a hospital when you planned for a home birth)
Provide medical advice or perform medical procedures
It is my job to provide you with the most up-to-date information around anything that comes up related to your birth. If there’s a question I don’t know the answer to, you can bet I’m going to find the research studies and evidence around that question so that you can make an informed decision.
My type of support shows up in my dedication to helping women find their voice and gain confidence so that on the days leading up to their birth they can be excited and not scared or confused.
