Bump Up Birth:
the customizable birthing method designed by certified birth coach,
Ashley Blankenship

...so you can become the expert.



Hi! I'm Ashley. 


I'm a Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, Breastfeeding Counselor, and Birth Educator. 

I didn't start off in this line of work. I was a recording artist and songwriter for many years. I travelled the world, and met incredible people, but I didn't find my true passion until I became a mom. After the rush I felt experiencing birth for the first time, I knew I needed to create something that would change the culture of birth and parenting.

As a parent of three children with very different beginnings, I value a customized approach that puts the needs and wants of your family first and a framework for bringing baby home. I understand there is more than one way to create a family, and I want to be there for you as you grow yours.


Birth doesn't have to be scary, and we don't have to become someone we're not to be a good parent. I'm passionate about teaching parents HOW to give birth and HOW to be great parents on their own terms! You are in control of your experience. I want to help you make it great.

"Ashley was very supportive, had great suggestions, and was very informative on the topics we discussed. She is also very kind and open so you always feel comfortable in her presence."


Bump Up your birth to the max with a comprehensive, yet simple method to make your birthing experience incredible. 

I created the Bump Up Birth Method because there was nothing out there giving parents individualized, curated information that fostered confidence and great birthing experiences. 

We get down to business and make it fun.


No more blindly following what people tell you to do. You're in control and backed by an expert!


With this multi-media, multi-tool program, You learn and practice what you need to learn, how you want to. No birth is the same, and the Bump Up Birth Method recognizes that. 

You, your baby, and your birth are special. The Bump Up Birth Method respects that.

You got this!
