Ashley Baney


My name is Ashley. My husband and I moved to Fort Wayne in 2012 from Michigan where I worked a doula for five wonderful years. We now are back in West Michigan, and so excited to be home, and building a mini homestead in Cedar Springs. We have three children. Our son is fourteen, our second daughter is eight and our baby was born in March. We are a family that tries to be green whenever possible, and strives to live a more simple life that revolves around our children and our pets. 

Much of what we want in our lives led me to becoming a doula. I spent a great deal of time educating myself on my choices as a parent. Starting at the very beginning with pregnancy. I found that the best choices for our family were the natural ones. I firmly believe that deciding ahead of time what you want in childbirth, understanding what is going on within you, and having a strong support system makes all the difference. After gathering so much knowledge for myself I found that I also love sharing that knowledge with others, and helping them through such an amazing time in their lives. I am called to this. Just as much as being a mother calls to me. There is no greater joy for me than offering support and comfort. 

I have been working as a doula since 2010. I am a trained birth doula through Birth Arts International, and continue to further educate myself all the time. Through clinics, workshops, online courses, and books. I promise to always give my clients the very best resources that I can find for them.

I am also trained in Birth Emergency Skills, and certified in CPR. I am also certified in Aromatherapy for Pregnancy, Labor, and Postpartum through Birth Arts International.
