My name is Ashley Sipes, I am now a mother of two! It all started when I was 18 years old and in an Arby’s bathroom. I saw a plus sign on a pregnancy test. I spent so much time putting together a nursery for my new baby and worrying about what maternity clothes would fit me. I didn't understand the extent of planning, education, or support for birth itself. This includes postpartum planning! I thought birth just "happened" to you and then you moved on, with little to no say in what "happened". I was fear driven, a nervous teen, and didn't want to learn. To be honest, birth was something that I wanted to avoid all together. Why so much fear? It seemed like such an out of control emergent thing. Loss of control is one of my biggest fears.
I endured a traumatic birth, which lead me to this beautiful journey of birth work. After facing my traumatic birth and working through it with therapy, I want to help others. My goal is to offer support, provide education, and uplift all birthing people. No matter what kind of birth you have in mind, your birth matters, and you matter!
