Hello! I’m Ashley Daoust, a certified doula and babywearing educator. I’ve been serving families on the Central Coast for the past few years as a birth, postpartum and bereavement doula, as well as a babywearing educator and placenta print keepsake creator. Birth has been my heart’s work since my first birth 20 years ago. This past year a doula client of mine gave birth to her IVF twins via cesarean and had to have an emergency hysterectomy due to complications. Always wanting to be a surrogate, but knowing it would need to be a unique and personal situation, I found myself led to offer to carry their last embryo. As of October, I have officially gone on leave as a doula to begin my journey in surrogacy as a gestational carrier for my past clients! I am thrilled to be on this side of birth again and help a family in a way I never thought I would be able to.
