Ashley Cochran, Owner & Student Midwife
In her pre-child life, Ashley was a classically trained ballerina and then spent time in the United States Army under active duty status. She has always been drawn to the medical field, working as a medical assistant and in medical administration, but never felt like she found her place until becoming a part of the natural birth community during her second pregnancy at Fort Bragg, NC. She accomplished her first VBAC there and began immediately advocating for and supporting families in their journeys after a cesarean. After the birth of her third son at a birthing center in 2013, she officially trained as a doula and has been serving families in birth and postpartum ever since, attending over 200 births (and counting!). Currently, she is pursuing her Certified Professional Midwife licensure and is completing the final stages of her training. Ashley lives in Belton with her partner and 3 sons. She will always eat Mexican food, overdoses on coffee routinely, and is easily amused by her own jokes.
