Sarah

Ashleigh had such a positive impact on my birth experience. Her thoughful questions and conversations helped us prepare well and feel comfortable before the birth. During labour she provided confident background support, never overbearing but helpful at just the right moments. She also captured photos we will treasure for ever. Then she also supported us with a few post partum visits. She is knowledgeable, warm, generous and able to respond intuitively to the clients’ requirements. I would highly recommend her!

I had Asheleigh as my doula for my first babies birth and I 110% receommend her. She was amazing and I hope that for all my future births I get to have her by my side. When we first met she was so easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable, which is so important to feel with your doula. She was very informative, super sweet, and an all around amazing person. Throughout my pregnancy she was super supportive and checked in with me leading up to the birth. She was always a text or phone call away and was so helpful in making recommendations on books to read, classes to take, things to practice before the birth, etc. When I did go into labour, she was very helpful, she supported not only myself but my husband (ensuring he ate, took breaks if needed and stepped in for him when he needed to step out of the room) and helped me manage my pain naturally and made me feel so powerful and strong. She constantly supported me throughout the labour and was great at judging when she needed to let me be and when she needed to offer me support, she was very inuititve. I had the best birthing experience and I completely believe that it was because she helped me prepare and then supported me through every part of my labour. She even made sure I had something to nibble on while in labour and made sure I drank to stay strong. And she even checked in after to make sure I had a good grasp on breastfeeding! She is amazing and if you have the chance to book her, consider yourself so so lucky! Seriously the best experience ever.
