Welcome, I’m Ashley! I am a Certified Labor Doula and apprentice midwife for Slidell and the surrounding areas. My goal is to help you achieve your birth goals and have an informed, peaceful birth. Please take a look around the website and check things out. Most questions should be answered below, but feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Every mother should feel supported and empowered during her birth experience. No matter where you choose to birth or which type of care provider you choose to birth with, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable with where you are and the people around you. I am here to help parents explore their options and articulate their wishes for their birth, share those wishes with their care provider, and experience their desired birth.
I am happy to work with all mothers to include those planning a vaginal, cesarean, or VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) delivery whether in your home or the hospital. Every birth I have attended has been a beautiful, unique, and inspiring experience!
I believe that every birth is an extremely important event. You lovingly and gently cared for this little one for nine months, and while I cannot guarantee everything will go according to plan, I believe that with the proper support it is possible to lovingly and gently bring that little one into your arms.
“There’s a secret in our culture; it’s not that birth is painful, it’s that women are strong.”
