Ashley and her husband, Matthew, relocated to St. Louis from coastal South Carolina with their growing family (two daughters and pit bull rescue). After three previous losses and becoming a survivor of postpartum depression, Ashley hopes to share her family’s story so that others can see that no matter how dark some days can be there is always hope.
