We are excited to celebrate one of our hard working, dedicated and kind staff members this month, Ashley Ezzio. Ashley has been part of the Young Women’s Resource Center team for a little more than two years as our Childbirth and Perinatal Specialist.
A main component of her role is to facilitate a weekly pregnancy and childbirth education group with expecting mothers ages 21 and younger. Discussion during this group focuses on what it’s like to be pregnant, and the options mothers and families have during their birth journey.
