I hired Ashley early in pregnancy. She was terrific and drove all the way to my house up north a few times to teach me various things about pregnancy and childbirth. Ashley was fantastic the day of my birth. She was with me from early in the morning until almost midnight. I was very happy with her services, until she didn't follow through with the remainder of her obligations. After the birth of our son we never saw her again. The package I had paid for (in full prior to birth) included a postnatal massage and 3 postpartum visits. She cancelled the massage 2-3 weeks postpartum saying she needed to reschedule, which she never did, nor did she do any of the postpartum visits. It is extremely disappointing that she never returned any of my messages (I attempted to reach her numerous times) especially since I previously had a good experience. I was looking forward to the postpartum help, massage, and my birth story. It was a very poor postpartum experience and I feel let down. Especially since my package was paid in full and I was walked away from. My trust has been broken.
