The amazing Ashley Hancock with her daughter Morgan (7) and son Micah (6 months). Ashley got pregnant with her daughter when she was 17 and about to start her senior year of high school. The pregnancy was unexpected and Ashley was so worried about how her grandparents, who were raising her, would react that she waited until just 18 before Morgan was born to tell them. She says they were disappointed for one day and mentioned adoption one time before they jumped on board and went out and bought her a bunch of baby things. It made things suddenly real and a little bit scary. Ashley had been told that Morgan was breech and had to have a cesarean but didn't fully understand what that meant and was very afraid it. Her birth was scheduled during her spring break so she delivered her baby without complication, took the week off and returned to school to finish up the year and graduate with her class. Ashley had hoped to breastfeed but didn't have a lot of support in the hospital so Morgan was formula fed which she says actually allowed her more ability to focus on her schooling. Ashley and her husband wanted to wait before they had another so Micah's pregnancy was very much planned and they only had to try for 3 months before he was conceived. She had a healthy pregnancy and planned for a repeat, scheduled cesarean. She went into labor two weeks prior to due date when her waters broke and she very much enjoyed being able to experience labor for the first time. The doctor on when she was admitted to hospital asked if she wanted to attempt a VBAC which was never in the plan but she decided to go for it. Micah was posterior however and ended up passing meconium in his fluid so she did end up giving birth via cesarean. Her recovery was quick and without complication and she was able to breastfeed Micah right away. Ashley and her husband decided to keep their son intact after doing a lot of research and she says she is very proud of the decision. Ashley says that even though she is a generally insecure person she is so confident in her motherhood. Her body, her breasts, her journey and she wants to share that all in hopes of empowering other women to do the same.
