CADY ASCH, CLD (CAPPA)
I began working as a doula because I strongly believe that all mothers and their partners deserve to have a committed, empowering, non-judgmental support person by their side before, during and after their birth. I provide information, resources and loving, authentic guidance to help navigate through choices and options surrounding pregnancy, birth and parenting.
I want you to have the birth that you desire, and it is my greatest hope to do all that I can to support your choices and make that happen. I strive to create an open, safe, protected environment in which you can listen to and follow your intuition. I am a nurturer by nature and my practice is informed by many years of studying and practicing yoga and meditation. I have a very grounded and calm personality, I am an attentive listener and a comforting and compassionate caregiver.
Birth is a sacred, transformative and unique journey and I am dedicated to helping people like you experience it's power, beauty, and many gifts. I would love to be your guide.
With much love and respect,
Cady is an experienced, professional birth doula. She was born and raised in Minnesota, and lived all over the US, but now calls beautiful Charlotte, NC her home. Cady has been married to her husband Eric since 2002 whom she met while living in New York City in 1997. Together they are raising two smart, handsome and very entertaining teenage boys (Valen born in NJ and Kirin born at our home here in NC). Cady enjoys spending her free time hanging out with her family and friends, snuggling her dogs, doing yoga, traveling, attending workshops, taking classes on and reading about subjects such as feminine spirituality, living a healthy lifestyle, yoga, psychology, healing, tantra, conscious relationships and more.
