Ashlee began volunteering at SCM as a Doula Intern in 2010, she was our primary Midwife Assistant Extraordinaire for 4 years and our Associate Pregnancy Concierge for a year. She is also our Doula Intern Coordinator, one of our Primary Birth Assistants, and instructor for the Birth Details Class. She first became interested in childbirth when attending her own mother’s births as a teenager. Being the oldest of six, she got a taste of what it could be like in birth and child rearing, and wanted to know more. With enthusiasm and research she discovered the beauty of natural birthing and all the possibilities that come with it.
