In giving birth to our babies we may find that we give birth to new possibilities within ourselves.

Thank you for making the birth of our little angel even more memorable, and for giving my daughter the support and warmth she needed in those trying moments!

Hi, I'm Ashley, #birthnerd extraordinaire.

I love what I do. Seriously. I know sometimes people say that, but I really, really mean it. I'm truly passionate about the things I love (birth being one of them!), which makes me super fun at parties (who doesn't want to hear about how babies are born over cake?).

Other things I love include coffee, beer, pizza, chocolate chia pudding, dogs, sleep, and hip hop.

I'm the mom to two beautiful daughters, one who is an angel and another who is a tenacious toddler.

When I'm not at a birth you can find me reading about birth, thinking about birth, or talking about birth. But seriously, you can probably find me sleeping because I have to take it when I can get it.

What gets me fired up (in a good way):

• When I can see the difference that informed decision-making and empowerment can make to a birth experience

• When I get to capture the intimate moments of a family during birth or after

• When I see families thrive in their new roles as parents. There's just nothing better (well, except maybe sleep!)

If you’re ready to chat about how I can help to make your birth experience as positive and empowering as possible, contact me and we can set up a coffee or tea date.
