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!

Choose This Moment Birth Services

Hello, my name is Jes, I am a CAPPA International certified Labor Doula and a trained Postpartum Doula (also through CAPPA), I am also a 200hr trained Yoga instructor and 85hr certified Prenatal Yoga instructor. My role as your doula would be to help educate, support, and honor your birth and postpartum choices, without judgement, helping you to stay fully in the present moment, and to remind you to breath. I believe that giving birth is not only about welcoming a new member to our family, but also about birthing new identities of our own, and would love to help support you through that transition.

Katrina Bolduc Birth Services

I am a firm believer that a person’s pregnancy, labor, and birth are one of the most powerfully pivotal moments in a persons’s life. With a passion for helping others I fell in love with the aspect of supporting, encouraging, and helping others grow, with compassion, respect, understanding, and commitment to meet each individual where they are at. I am a forever student of life, and enjoy trainings and new experiences that will build on my strengths to help others. My goal is to support, empower, provide evidence based information, and assist in making your birth journey as memorable as possible.

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.

Boonbani Birth Doula Services

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. I wish to awaken this knowledge within every family I serve. Studying midwifery and practicing as a DONA trained doula is my way of honoring a lineage of women who have come before me and preserving the sacred traditions of birth for future generations.
