Doula Ashlee is first and foremost a dedicated mother to her five children, ranging in age from infant to preteen, as well as, wife to her super supportive husband, Nathan. Together they are raising their busy family in beautiful rural Estacada, Oregon. Ashlee enjoys the opportunity to serve her community by volunteering her time at the local grade school and attending meetings as a member of the La Leche League of Oregon. She also enjoys Sunday night Football with the family (GO Steelers!). Those much needed weekday coffee sessions with her girlfriends makes her world a better place!
Ashlee has always been the go-to family member, friend, or peer to discuss strategies or concerns with pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and much more. During her last pregnancy, Ashlee and her husband made the wise decision to hire a doula of their own for additional care and support. This personal journey with her doula taught Ashlee to truly understand firsthand what doulas provide. This, paired with her own life experience and knowledge, lead her to realize that, even without the title, Ashlee had been a doula all along!
This was the beginning! She proudly began pursuing her certification as a Postpartum Doula through Birth Arts International. Ashlee is excited to provide doula support to women and families in Clackamas County and the surrounding area. She recognizes the particular needs of the rural client, yet understands the needs of the suburban client as well.
Family Tree Doula Services was excited when their former client wanted to become a member of the team. Ashlee’s understanding of diverse family dynamics, breastfeeding and parenting multiple children is incredibly valuable to the client’s we support.
