Congratulations! You're having a baby! What comes next? If you don't exactly know, you're not alone.
Pregnancy and birth can bring about a multitude of emotions and is a time of great change. With so many decisions to make and so much information to navigate, it can feel overwhelming and confusing.
You don't have to do this alone (actually, I encourage you not to). Adding a doula to your support team gives you the calming reassurance that every expecting parent needs. A doula can help guide you through the decisions you need to make and provide you with the information and support you need to feel confident and empowered. With your doula by your side, you'll have a warm, supportive, and knowledgeable ally to help you navigate this exciting time in your life.
Hello, My name is Ashley Mullane
I am a firefighter wife and a mom to three little ones.
I am the owner of Thrive Birth Co and Ashley Mullane Photography and am a DONA trained birth doula and a TBIB trained birth photographer.
Birth is a normal, natural, and healthy process. Every birth is unique and so are the desires and needs of each birthing woman. My greatest joy as a birth doula is educating, empowering, and supporting women to ensure they have a positive birth experience. My goal is to help women give birth as they wish, in an environment where they feel nurtured and secure; in which her emotional well-being, privacy, and personal preferences are respected. I strive to make sure each woman has the knowledge and confidence to make decisions about her birth that best fit her emotional and physical needs.
As a doula, I work with clients throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. What does this mean? It means I'm here, day or night, to provide you with continuous care, comfort, encouragement, and guidance throughout the entire process. During pregnancy, I'll provide you with gentle guidance, informational support, and be the judgment-free voice that you need.
When the big day comes, I'll be by your side from the first contractions until your baby is in your arms. No matter what kind of birth you are planning or how many times that plan needs to change, I'll help you understand your options, ensure that your preferences are upheld and respected, and make sure your partner is supported, too! My only goal for your birth is to help you have a positive and fulfilling birth experience.
After baby is born, I'll be close by to help you recover, to support your family, and to help you learn to care for your new baby. With a doula on your team, you'll never feel alone or need to wonder what comes next.
