I have experience in both low and high risk pregnancies and births. My combined time (8 years) as a nurse midwife and doula has given me the truly unique opportunity to support women, parents and newborns across the childbearing spectrum. I will be available to you in the lead up to your birth as a resource, I will be there during your labor to support for you, I will be there once you transition to life at home with your newborn. I can stay overnight for support and late night chats when you’re feeling vulnerable or unsure. All people deserve support, love and community around them; this need is even more pronounced at times of change, adaptation and vulnerability – and that’s when a doula comes in! As your doula, I work for you. My support is for you, your choices and your aspirations.

Nicole Clapton

I was lucky enough to have Ashtyn with me for the birth of my little boy, Jude. He came into the world very early and in quite a dramatic nature and I can honestly say that having Ashtyn by my side was the greatest blessing. I genuinely am not sure how I would have gotten through without her.
She went above and beyond in every way. Her caring nature, her extensive knowledge, her intense passion and her ability to connect made me feel at ease and prepared.
Throughout our entire birth I felt so well looked after and not frightened of what was about to happen.
Ashtyn explained every step of the process in a language that the doctors could not, a way that I understood. She was honest and positive and most of all, she made me feel like I had a friend in there holding my hand.
There are truly not enough words for me to explain how important she was for me as I went through such a difficult birth. I will be forever grateful that I had her by my side.
I can not recommend having Ashtyn as your Doula highly enough. She has such an innate gift for caring for mothers and babies as they go through the most amazing journey.
Thank you so much Ashtyn!

Ashtyn (Ash) was such a great support for my husband and I for our first labor experience. She is so calming and friendly which makes her so good at her job. She communicated so well with me throughout my labor and really just got it. You know when you feel comfortable with someone from the very start and you know you are in safe hands. I know Ash will do well having moved away from Melbourne as she is just so honest and lovely to have as part of your birthing experience so definitely would recommend her.

Ashtyn was my doula for the birth of my first child in July, 2017. While new to Boston, Ashtyn is firmly established in Australia as a highly-respected midwife working in one of Melbourne’s premier tertiary hospitals. Ashtyn is not someone with simply an interest in supporting women through birth; she is a fully-qualified midwife who excels in her field.

First and foremost, Ashtyn is an outstanding person. This really matters, because ability to form meaningful, positive relationships underpins all forms of midwifery and doula care. Ashtyn is easy to be with. She is smart. She is funny. She is focused on the big picture, but also pays attention to the smallest of details. Most crucially, Ashtyn makes no personal judgments of women, their partners or their joint decisions about birthing. While reading your fears, your wishes and your concerns, s Ashtyn plays a very active role in informing you, always drawing your attention back to patterns she has seen in practice, and the most recent evidence-base available. She has a way of giving you just the right information at just the right time. When you talk to Ashtyn, you always feel heard.

Because Ashtyn is the most humble person I know, it’s likely that she will undercharge for the quality of care she provides. It’s absolutely true that if Ashtyn could, she would work free of charge for all women. With this in mind, don’t let price-point be your marker of quality here. Ashtyn was put on this planet to bring life into the world, and to help make wonderful experiences for women and their partners. Anyone who works with Ashtyn will come to know care in its truest, richest form. I wish Ashtyn the very, very best as she embarks on a new professional adventure in Boston!
