I am of the belief that from the beginning of time, there has always been an invisible string of fate tying you to your baby. You are the best parent for your baby; and yet the transition into family + 1 (or more!) can be overwhelming! As a postpartum doula and lactation counselor, it is my pleasure to support you in this transitional time. I do this by helping you create a postpartum plan, support healing through mental and emotional support, assist in prepping nutritious meals, provide newborn care education, lactation support and ease the promotion to big brother and sister with your other little ones!
You can read every book and blog, but no one can teach you how to be a parent. It’s something you have to learn on the job. When you have a baby, everyone is quick to pick them up and tend to their needs, but as a new mom learning the ropes, I found that I needed someone to pick me up too. Ashley offered me so much support that I didn’t know I needed. She helped me to feel validated in my emotions and gave me the tools to build this brand new person that I became when I gave birth. They say you can’t give the best of yourself to others when your cup is empty. I can’t thank Ashley enough for pouring love into me every day so that I can be the best mother for my son. I’ll never be able to thank her enough for the confidence that she instilled in me.
