Welcome! Thanks for stopping by.
What if I told you that there was someone who would support your birth choices, provide you evidence-based information, and teach you how to advocate for yourself and your baby all while comforting you physically, emotionally, mentally, and educationally? Hi, I'm Ashley Kidd-Tatge (She/Her) and I'm that someone.
Birth rights are human rights and incredible things happen when a birthing person is treated with the care and compassion they deserve.
EVERYONE deserves to be educated, supported, and encouraged during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. It's more evident than ever that the world is full of barriers. One way I can do my part is to level the playing field and make birth education and support accessible, regardless of social stature, race, sexual preference/identity, or religion.
I believe in your ability to give birth. I believe in your strength. Your labor and delivery can set the tone for your new life with your baby; let's work together and make it majestic!
You are welcome here!

As a birth doula, I provide continuous, physical, emotional and informational support to mothers and their partners. We work together before, during, and after childbirth to help you and your partner achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
After birth, your placenta can be steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills or tinctures. This pill or tincture is taken and is believed to impart numerous health benefits such as increased milk production and regulation of hormones throughout postpartum and beyond. Placenta prints and art are also available upon request.
Sibling doulas tend to older children while their parents have a baby. Whether planning for a home, birth center, or hospital birth, I ensure that your children are cared for and safe - in home or present at the birth. The birth process is explained in the most "kid-friendly" way possible and kids have a "birth buddy" they can rely on. Learn more.
