Ashley began attending births at 24 years old and learned afterward that her own great-grandmother had been a midwife too. She loves supporting women in connection with themselves, their loved ones big and small, and other families on the journey of parenthood.
Leslie believes women's bodies are designed to bring forth and sustain life; and that every baby is a precious gift. Her passion is to give support to all birthing families during their special time of great change and deep joy.
