Ashley was so amazing to work with!!!!!

She came to visit me  and took the time in each visit to make sure that I thoroughly understood everything and was always comfortable at all times. I felt comfortable to talk to her about anything and never any time felt pressured to make a certain decision she always made sure to let me know that every decision was my own and that my comfort was the most important thing. Ashley put together my birth plan for me so that it was simple to print out and have for when I went into labor. She went above and beyond and was my voice for any situations that I didn't want to deal directly with. She was non-judgemental and the best support system that I had during this experience. I have already recommended her to my other friends and I just wanted to take the time to write a little review and let people know what an awesome job she did and how much I appreciated her! ??????

Ashley was an absolutely amazing doula and perfect match for us. We met her a few weeks before my due date and immediately felt at ease with her. We went over my birth plan and what part she would be playing during the labor and birth of our second baby. thro those weeks she checked in on me to see how I was doing and if I needed anything, which was wonderful knowin she was already there and available for support even before the labor! On the Day of my son’s birth she was ready to meet us at the birth center right in the agreed time and got straight to it, helping with hip squeezes and rocking back and forth. Once inside she was always there for support whether it be with rebozo sifting or encouragement, having her there with me and my husband was priceless. Ashley was born to be a doula! Instinct to be compassionate and caring really showed through and I can only say wonderduk things and  thank you for everything she did for us, I would recommend her to anyone having a baby whether it’s your first or fifth time around!

Ashley Garcia was amazing!  We had the privilege of having her as our doula from the time we signed the contract to a couple days after postpartum.  She took us in last minute as we had decided on getting a doula a couple weeks before our due date.  We met for a consultation and she put us at ease immediately and we made our choice to go with Ashley as our doula.  I had a long latent labor (4 days!) and Ashley provided support both in person and over the phone.  She utilized techniques such as counter pressure on my back during contractions, breathing techniques, relaxation, focusing and emotional support.  When I was finally admitted to Labor  and Delivery, she arrived at our room and stayed with us for the duration of my labor.  I ended up getting an epidural because I was exhausted from the labor lasting so long and was able to rest for a few hours while I received pitocin to speed up the contractions.  All the while, she supported us in making informed decisions and what was right for us.  She took pictures for us during the birth and stayed for an hour or so after our baby's birth until we were settled before leaving.  She visited us a couple days afterward to check in on us and to show us basics in baby care such as swaddling techniques, wearing the baby in a carrier and sleeping with baby.  She has helped us in so many ways that helped us to have a positive birth experience. We were so glad to have had the expertise and the support she provided during one of the most life-changing moments in our lives.  Thanks again Ashley!
