Ashley Jacobs is a mother of three little girls. After a traumatic experience from the birth of her second daughter, Ashley became more interested in learning about the birthing culture. She left her career and went on and trained with Birth Arts International, becoming a Birth Doula. Not long after the training, her family was moved from their hometown and settled in Lancaster County. Having her tribe of support of family and closest friends being just minutes away, to now hours, she struggled to give the support to birthing mothers and decided to take a hiatus from the industry until her littles weren’t so little.
It wasn’t long before the pregnancy of her third child that she became more increasingly interested in exploring postpartum support for women. Having two postpartum periods where she suffered greatly from PPD, she found herself relating very closely to other women that may not speak out about their negative adjustments to motherhood. It was then where she started to dive more into the knowledge of Placenta Encapsulation. It was something that she had heard of and skimmed over in years past, but never fully considered because of the lack of references.
Ashley stumbled across Lancaster Placenta Co when she was newly pregnant with her third child and knew she didn’t want to encounter the same difficulties. Callie was a vessel of knowledge and helped her decide right away it was worth trying for herself, and to learn more to help support others.
She trained then with IPPA and received her Placenta Encapsulator Specialist Certificate shortly after the birth of her third baby. During this time of studying about the placenta and its natural remedies for mommas, she was herself benefiting from her own placenta. Her third postpartum was a huge contrast from her past experiences. She knew then that this was her calling, and now is deeply passionate for helping other mothers in the same predicaments.
