About Ashley

I’m Ashley, a wife and mom of 3 amazing kids. We eat, sleep, and breath hockey (my oldest son and husband play) but when you can’t find us at the rink you can find us on the boat, camping or at the golf course (this is my middle sons sport of choice). I also have a small crafting business that I enjoy and as well as cross stitching when I’m not playing chauffeur for all the kid’s activities.

I first began exploring surrogacy in early 2017 while watching two acquaintances go through their journey. Their journeys sparked my interested so much because of the love I have for helping others but also because I have had amazing pregnancies and births.

After research and much discussion with my husband we finally decided June of 2017 that this was something we were ready to pursue. My first journey went by quickly and flawlessly, delivering in October of 2018. Which then lead to my second journey not long after.

Both of my journeys have been vastly different but equally amazing in their own special ways and my surrogate families will always have such a special place in my entire family’s hearts. Now I look forward to helping mentor other prospective surrogates as they start their journey.
