ABOUT 
Ashley Blankenship

I'm Ashley. 

Being a professional recording artist and traveling the world at a young age, gave me a unique insight into the way people live and what motivates them. I bring this expertise into coaching parents to create a family dynamic that feels authentic to who they are to avoid burnout and dissatisfaction.

 

I'm a Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, Breastfeeding Counselor, and Birth Educator. I live in the suburbs of Denver with my husband, our 3 children, and our dog Beau. We have been through a lot completing our family. My daughter was born prematurely at 26 weeks, I was on bedrest my entire pregnancy with our first son (2.5 months of which were spent in the hospital), and we adopted our second son through foster care.

 

I know there are many ways to start a family, and none of them are easy. My passion is to make becoming a parent feel good even when it's a challenge! I'm here to share my compassion, knowledge and experience to make your transition into parenthood a smoother one!

The Method

Becoming a parent has always been an exciting time filled with a roller-coaster of emotions. We make sure our house is big enough, the nursery is cute as a button, worry about giving birth, and imagine that after baby arrives, everything will just fall into place.

What if I told you there was a better way? What if I told you, if everything doesn't just "fall into place" after baby arrives, bad habits form and your dream family-life falls further and further out of reach.

With the Bump Up Birth Method, I have taken all of the birth information (backed by science) that I could gather, all of the other methods I've studied, all of my experience with infants, all of my experience studying family dynamics, took out all the garbage that makes learning complicated, and created an easy-to-follow guide that makes becoming a parent easier.

The Bump Up Birth Method is practical, simple, thorough, and fully customizable so it works for YOU.

We hire realtors, wedding planners, Home-builders, financial planners...We need to invest in the creation of our families!

 

I'm not here to sell you a bunch of products you don't really need. I want to foster an intuition and confidence in you as a parent to create the family-life YOU want. You're strong enough, you're brave enough, and I'll teach you the skills you need to feel that way, too!

Parenthood isn't easy, but you don't have to feel lost and alone! By utilizing the Bump Up Birth Method, you'll be ready with confidence for whatever parenthood throws at you. I'll provide you with factual advice, helpful tips, and guide your intuition as parents to flourish. No matter the season you're in, whether you're a first-time parent, or have other kids, a better way is never a bad idea, and I'm here for you!
