Ayurvedic Cook and Doula
I bring compassionate expert advice to help the family restore energy, replenish the body and mind. I will cook, guide you through light yoga/breathing and pelvic floor exercises, prepare herbs and teas specific to you, Ayurvedic belly wrapping, advise breast care and breastfeeding support when needed, provide warm oil application for the mother and teach infant massage to caregiver. It is my mission to bring you the rest and rejuvenation that you need during and after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Caring for yourself in the early days will set the stage for a positive and healthy postpartum.
Calm, kind and oh so helpful--I was so fortunate to have help from Ashley postpartum! Ashley was wonderful and professional in her communication and follow-through. During her visits I enjoyed getting to talk with her- she's incredibly knowledgable, but very careful not to be pushy about anything. She has a wonderful calming presence and jumped right in to help around the house and in the care of me and my little guy. She was incredibly valuable to our family! I highly recommend hiring her!
