Ashley Cochran, CPM, LM, ILFS (She/Her)

Licensed Midwife, Integrated Lactation and Feeding Specialist

I live in West Temple with my partner, 3 sassy children, and 2 dogs I am fairly allergic to (but tolerate still). I am a coffee obsessed, true crime podcast loving Texas native. I grew up the oldest of 5 children in a sometimes homeschooled, always loud household of people who still genuinely like each other as adults. I served in the US Army prior to the birth of my children.

I came to birth work after the birth of my second child, when I began to advocate for people's ability to birth vaginally after a cesarean section, having just done it myself. Finally, someone said, "You know, people do this as a job?" Say less bestie, I was ALL in! I began my apprenticeship in Central Texas in 2013 and haven't looked back since!

I am honored to care for all birthing people in my community and affirm their rights to safer, more empowering birthing experiences.

Malayia Cooley (She/Her)

Advanced Student Midwife

I am currently pursuing my midwifery license through the Portfolio Evaluation Process under the North American Registry of Midwives. I expect to complete the process by the end of 2024.

I am also a Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Child Development Expert in Central Texas. I specialize in trauma-informed care and reproductive justice for people of color throughout their pregnancy and postpartum periods.

My background in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) has taught me how to prepare families for the birth of their little ones with perinatal diagnoses as well as developmental delays and disabilities during the postpartum period.

I pride myself in providing families with the resources and tools needed to parent well after my time with them. My mission is to empower families to make educated decisions, ask questions, and advocate for themselves.

In my free time, you can find me hanging out at the lake or listening to true crime podcasts!
