Ashley came into my life in my 39th week, she instantly made me feel like she would be a great addition to my birthing support and she was! During labor her naturally calm demeanor was contagious. She comforted me mentally with her encouraging words and physically with massages, counter pressure and a shoulder to lean on. The most amazing thing happened when it was time to actually bring me daughter to this world, Ashley literally held me, as I squatted. I wouldn’t have been able to give birth comfortably and safely without her. I would refer Birthing & Beyond Services because of how she aided me in my amazing birth experience and because she is very price friendly. Ashley understands the need for her services even in lower income homes. I had given up on finding a doula simply because of affordability but I’m so glad the universe bought me her.
Ashley was particularly fantastic during my labor. She was available when I was pregnant. The discussions we had when I was pregnant prepared me for labor. When those contractions kept coming, she stood by me and encouraged me. This is my second pregnancy and I must say that it was easier than my first because of Ashley! I am so thankful for her being there. As a single mom and also the first time having someone around me during labor, I will refer this service to anyone who is like me and who needs someone to comfort them when bringing forth a new life into the world.

During my pregnancy, Ashley gave me her time to talk and reflect on the birthing experience that I was hoping for. She is a great listener and was very respectful of my viewpoints. She gently checked on me from time to time to make sure everything was going well. I really appreciated having her friendly words around during that special time. She is a good fit for families because she is responsible, knowledgeable and committed to her job. She will make you feel comfortable right away.
