Ashley Hartman Annis

Fertility Awareness Educator


Ashley (she / her / hers) is a fertility awareness educator (certified through The Association of Fertility Awareness Professionals) and a full-spectrum pregnancy companion (ie: birth & abortion & miscarriage doula). She has been teaching classes on menstrual cycle charting for birth control & conception since 2013 and started full-spectrum pregnancy work in 2018.


Ashley believes that everyone — regardless of sex, gender, relationship status, age, ability, race, economic situation, educational background, political beliefs, or religious beliefs — deserves comprehensive, informed, un-biased, non-judgmental, culturally-competent, empowering education and support around sex, sexuality, reproduction, birth control, and desire. Ashley is honored to offer education on the fertility awareness method and support for all outcomes of pregnancy, but does not judge anyone for their choices or their needs around sexuality, family planning, and birth control.
