Ashley was a great help to our family after our daughter was born. We are older parents and have no family nearby to help us, but Ashley felt like a member of the family after working with us as a night doula during my daughter’s first months. Ashley was there to support me (mom) and our daughter, and I am grateful for her help. Some of the things I most appreciate about Ashley were her respect and care for our daughter, her non-judgmental approach to talking about parenting skills and choices with us, and her open-minded way of offering ways to do things when we are unsure of what we wanted to do or what would be best for our family. We loved that Ashley is intelligent and intellectually curious - always learning. She brought so many different skills to us - baby caregiver, sympathetic ear when it comes to new parent woes, cheerleader (never thought I would be someone who would want someone to congratulate me for getting up to pump throughout the night, but it turns out it was helpful to have the encouragement!), PPD and PPA knowledge, and carseat technician to name just a few.


Communication with Ashley was great. If ever there was confusion about something, she was quick to seek clarity, and we had no problems with her at a time when I feel like my own communication skills and coping skills in those first few months of new parenthood were a far cry from what they were pre-baby!


Overall, Ashley helped me get the rest I needed and the support I craved in order to be a better parent to my sweet baby. I don’t know what we would have done without her. My baby loves her, and working with her was a great decision for us and a worthwhile financial investment in our well-being.

Ashley was our postpartum doula from the time our little baby girl was about 2 weeks old until she was 5 months old at which time we moved away from Chicago. She helped watch the baby overnight, on date nights, cooked us meals, helped clean, did the babies laundry, washed bottles, you name it and she did it! Ashley is beyond knowledgeable in everything having to do with newborns and babies of all ages- she taught me how to give infant massages, how to wear baby in various carriers, breastfeeding encouragement and support, and answered any and all questions I had on a daily basis. Being a mother herself brings a lot of perspective, first hand experience and sympathy on how wonderful but also trying it can all be at times! I think above all else, when you're looking to find someone that is going to be around the most precious/important thing in the world to you, is that you can wholeheartedly trust them. I can say with every confidence that Ashley is the kindest, gentlest, most trustworthy wonderful doula and was truly a godsend for our family!
