Testimonial for Saltwater Doula LLC - @saltwaterdoulanh

I worked with Ashley through the Portsmouth Hospital Doula Program, and had a wonderful experience. Ashley was our lead doula - she was kind, knowledgeable, and a wealth of knowledge. I wanted to highlight what specifics made our experience with her exceptional. 

- Birth Preferences: She helped us identify our birth preferences, and helped us feel prepared for different scenarios that could pop up. She took so much time with us, and we never felt judged for what felt like our naive questions.  
- Thoughtful Guidance: She also helped us answer questions as they popped up throughout my pregnancy, and identified things we should ask about that we didn't even know we should think about. She was a lifesaver when my doctors recommended an induction at 39 weeks along due to IUGR. An induction was not one of my original birthing preferences. Ashley guided us through this process and what to expect. She helped us take what could have been a stressful time, and instead helped us feel informed and empowered.
- Great Communication: She proactively followed up on appointments, and was always super prompt in her replies. She also communicated with the fellow doulas so nothing about my preferences got lost in transition at the hospital.
- Helpful Resources: She also provided us amazing resources to help us prepare for both labor and postpartum. I have  leveraged everything she recommended and it has been so helpful (including but not limited to incorporating perineal massage, a guided spinning babies home routine, pelvic floor PTs, seacoast parenting communities etc.)
