My name is Ashley Minhan, and I have gained extensive experience working with families over the past 22 years. My initial foray into this field began when I assumed an active role within La Leche League after the birth of my eldest child. This led to the establishment of a support group tailored specifically for young mothers. Throughout my professional journey, I have engaged with parents and their young children in various capacities. I have led parent-child playgroups, extended in-home support and education to parents, and conducted multiple workshops for both parents and professionals.
Beyond my professional credentials, I am also a mother and have previously served as a foster parent for infants. My extensive certifications include areas such as being a DONA Doula, Childbirth Educator, Lactation Counselor, Spinning Babies Parent Educator, Passenger Safety Technician, Parent Educator, Bereavement Doula, Circle of Security Facilitator, as well as holding credentials in Parents as Teachers, Touch Points, and a Family Development Credential.
My main goal is to be there for families, both before and after their little ones arrive, as they navigate the amazing world of parenthood. I absolutely love helping parents explore their options and figuring out what works best for their unique families. By sharing my own personal and professional experiences, I strive to empower parents and give them the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. No pushy opinions or judgment here – just constant emotional support as they go through this incredible journey of being parents.
