Welcome to Doulas and Beyond
I am passionate about supporting and educating families during monumental times in life where everything is changing. I provide doula services to support you during pregnancy, birth and postpartum in the Finger Lakes area and Rochester area. I also offer sleep consulting support to help your family get more rest.
Hi, I am Ashley!
Growing up I always knew I wanted to work with babies. I went on to get a degree in early childhood development and have worked in the childcare field for over 10 years with infants. After becoming a certified pediatric sleep consultant in 2019 and working with many families, I realized there was so much more I could do to help parents thrive. This led me down the path of becoming a birth and postpartum doula. In 2022, I also became a certified childbirth educator. Educating and supporting families is my passion and I feel very privileged to get to do this work!
My goal as a sleep consultant is to help you establish healthy sleep habits in a way that works for your family. Parenthood shouldn't just feel tired all the time!
My goal as a birth doula is to inform and support parents so they feel empowered and remember birth as a positive experience. Your birth experience matters!
My goal as a postpartum doula is to make the transition of having a new baby as smooth as possible for the whole family. I would love to help as you navigate through the postpartum period. I am here to provide you emotional, informational and practical support.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside and working on home projects. My beautiful, sassy daughter always keeps me striving to do more!
Julie and I work together as a team for all things doula! She owns Healing Hands Wellness Studio in Victor. I met this wonderful woman in our birth doula training and she has already made such an amazing impact on my life. She has a wonderful spirit and always put the needs of others before her own.
After devoting many years to massage therapy and holistic body work, I have realized that the balance between good health, career, relationships and spirituality are vital.
I found a passion for working with expecting mothers and attended a birth doula training in February 2021. I then continued on to also take my postpartum doula training. I enjoy being able to guide birthing people from pregnancy through postpartum and provide a sense of calm when everything can feel so overwhelming. My goal as a doula is to help you feel empowered and support you through your birth and postpartum journey.
I also continue to grow my wellness studio in Victor. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.
