Two Births Doula Services

Hello I'm Ashley, owner of Two Births Doula Services! I am a soon to be certified Birth and Postpartum Doula (SLO Birth & Doula Collective) serving families in North and South San Luis Obispo County. I am a mother of two, an artist, writer, vegetable and medicinal herb gardener and owner of Skin to Skin, an organic skincare line for moms and babies. I believe birth is a normal physiological event and love nothing more than to see a woman connecting with the lineage that came before her. With that being said, I care deeply about advocating for a birthing person's autonomy and human rights. I support families from pregnancy to postpartum, championing their prenatal health and seeing them to the other side of their motherhood identity. My doula work is meant to bring comfort, wisdom, education, laughter, and empowerment to the expecting family. I look forward to sharing the sacred space of your birth and postpartum experience!

Spending time on thirty mile long backpacking trips and listening to mother earth has instilled in me a deep understanding of the cycles of life.

Ashley Daoust

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.

I am a certified birth and postpartum doula serving the Central Coast. I’m passionate about assisting women in birthing the way they choose, whether it be hospital, birth center, or home birth. I love sharing the joy of an empowered birth, tailored to suit the needs and desires of each individual birther. I believe every birther has a right to feel confident and powerful during birth.
