Consider the advantage of having a doula who is versed in the signs of labor, can normalize what you’re experiencing, is knowledgeable about obstetrical language and options, and is capable of supporting you and your partner at home or hospital.
Preparing for a low intervention birth? The more preparation and education, the better the outcome.
I met Ashley when she instructed our childbirth preparation classes. She was a wonderfully kind and thorough teacher and I was far more prepared for my home birth than I would have been taking conventional hospital classes.
Ashley’s calm and reassuring approach to teaching Bradley Method not only prepared us for our big day, but made us believers in the Bradley Philosophy. Her attentiveness and commitment to her students instilled confidence in my wife and I.
Ashley Maas is so wonderful! Such a calm and sweet presence to be around. With her encouragement and wonderful information, my husband and I were both empowered and became really excited about he birth of our daughter last September.
Because we were well educated from Ashley’s class, my husband and I were able to stay calm throughout my 40 hour labor, even when complications arose. I fully attribute the success of my labor to the knowledge we gained from Ashley’s classes.
Our Bradley classes prepared me beyond my expectations, and Ashley’s presence at the birth of our son, Caleb, provided invaluable support and a source of knowledge and information.
Ashley’s classes helped me immensely in preparing for childbirth, as well as reducing my anxieties about my upcoming delivery. She possesses a unique level of compassion and caring that makes her a wonderful doula.
