Guiding Mothers Postpartum Doula Services
My job is to make the transition to parenthood easier for you by helping your family during mom's recovery period. I am a living, breathing baby book ready to educate your family and answer any postpartum or baby-related questions you are struggling with. I do not take over complete care of your baby (or babies), but I educate and support your family so that you will feel confident to care for your unique baby yourself.
Hello! I am Ashleigh Richmond and I'm so excited to be able to bring the services of a postpartum doula to Kenosha, Racine, Southern Milwaukee and Lake County Illinois. Postpartum support leads to less postpartum depression, a longer duration of breastfeeding and a smoother transition into parenthood.
I believe that all families, no matter how they choose to parent, should be well informed and supplied all the information needed to make informed decisions. It is this knowledge that gives you the power to do what is right for your own family.
I am a Certified Lactation Specialist and a volunteer La Leche League Leader. Breastfeeding moms need support from the medical community and their peers to achieve their goals. I love helping mothers through their breastfeeding journeys. I also have specific training and experience in bottle feeding both formula and breastmilk.
As a semi-crunchy mama, I am always striving to lead my family in a more holistic approach to life. I’m very interested in learning about eating healthfully and using immune-boosting vitamins. My family and I love to go to the beach, travel, hike, bike and explore new restaurants.
