Ashley M. Baker, NP, CNM
Nurse Practitioner and Certified Nurse Midwife
Ashley was born and raised in central Arkansas. She completed her initial degree to become a registered nurse at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2010. She focused her nursing career primarily on women’s services in labor and delivery and postpartum care. Labor and delivery sparked a passion in Ashley to empower women, so she pursued her Master of Science in Nursing from the oldest and largest continually operating nurse-midwifery education program in the United States, Frontier Nursing University. Ashley graduated from Frontier in the fall of 2019 and immediately passed her board exam to become a Certified Nurse-Midwife.
Ashley completed her clinical training with Elite Women’s Health and knew early in her training that she wanted to be a member of our team. Prior to joining Elite, Ashley also worked as a registered nurse in labor and delivery at Mary Washington, so she has been serving this community since her Navy husband was stationed here in 2018. Ashley has a passion for breastfeeding support, teenage reproductive health and pregnancy, shared-decision making, family-centric care, and empowering labor and birth. Ashley also takes interest in providing welcoming and respectful care for our LGBTQIA+ community.
Ashley and her husband and four children live in Dahlgren, Virginia with their beloved dog and cat. The Baker family loves outdoor adventures, family game nights, and random dance parties.
