Midwifery Care with Ash Johnsdottir & Willamette Birth

Modern Care…Timeless wisdom

I’m passionate about offering my clients the best of the ancient and the modern world. Expect midwifery care that supports a natural birthing experience with age old midwifery wisdom and the best of today’s science & medicine.


Care that meets your needs

If this isn’t your first pregnancy, you may know how rushed the typical prenatal visit is (after an endless amount of time spent in the waiting room of course). At Willamette Birth, the typical appointment lasts an hour, so we have more than enough time to address any concerns you may have in addition to the the typical clinical assessments. I also don’t schedule appointments back to back, so my clients don’t get stuck waiting around.

Labratory services

Blood is drawn and samples are collected in house At Willamette Birth, saving you an extra trip to the lab. Everything from the standard prenatal tests and PAP smears, to state of the art genetic testing is offered. And not just for you! We offer newborn metabolic screening for babies as well.


Call your Midwife

An urgent circumstances at 3 AM? My clients call my cell phone and talk to me instead of an answering service or a faceless machine. Browsing the supplement aisle and wondering which prenatal vitamin to choose? My clients can text me instead of sifting through google. Willamette Birth clients enjoy care that is truly accessible to you throughout their entire pregnancy and postpartum period, rather than just at appointments.

Client Portal

All Willamette Birth clients get access to our 24/7 client portal with exclusive resources and content. And because we chart with state of the art EHR software instead of paper charts, you’ll always have secure electronic access to your (as well as your new baby’s) personal health record & complete chart from your pregnancy.


Everyone is welcome

Everyone is welcome at Willamette Birth with midwife Ash Johnsdottir. I see women from all types of lifestyles and backgrounds- athletes/fitness professionals and mothers who work in a cubicle and haven’t see the inside of a gym since high school. I am honored to have worked with families from an incredible array of religious and cultural backgrounds, from both traditional and nontradtional families.

  • Ash is a fantastic midwife. The personalized and comprehensive care you get from her practice is second to none. She was always there to answer any questions we had day or night and the appointments are lengthy so you never feel rushed. I also really appreciated the combination of modern innovations and practices mixed with a more naturalistic approach. We would definitely have her as our provider again!

  • We enjoyed relaxed informative prenatal visits with Ash. She took the time to explain the pregnancy and birth process. We felt very prepared and supported. Ash also encouraged good life style choices throughout the pregnancy and we now have a very healthy baby. For us, having our baby at home was the right choice and Ash was instrumental in making that successful.

  • Amazing! That's the words I would use!! I had two previous births, both in a hospital. I was looking for something different, something personal and unique. Ash was just that. She was thoughtful, caring, reliable, and really listened to my concerns and worries. She was always prompt in getting back to me when needed. As far as birthing, she came when I called no questions asked. I really couldn't have asked for better care for my in home birth. I highly recommend Ash!!

  • We received excellent, individualized care from Ash Johndottir. She is an incredibly intelligent person, as well as a very kind soul. I especially love how she bridges the gap between the medical and midwifery realm--taking the best of both worlds to provide the best care for her clients. Her in-home office and patient library is very cozy and welcoming, and she is always sure to ask consent before doing any procedures (even one as simple as touching the baby belly). She answers all questions as thoroughly as possible within the realm of her knowledge, and goes out of her way to research further if necessary. She was always a phone call or a text away, I felt like I could ask her anything at any time and receive her full attention. She treated my family and my unborn baby with the utmost respect, and when my daughter was born successfully at home she provided us with incredibly efficient medical care, as well as genuine warmth and affection, at the birth and in the 6 weeks following. So grateful for Ash and highly recommend her!

  • I made the decision to switch from an OB to a midwife at 20 weeks because I was determined to receive personalized and gentle care, and that is exactly what I received from Ash! I never once felt rushed during any visit, she answered all of my questions professionally and unbiasedly. Ash was incredible throughout our home birth... Calm, patient, and supportive. I appreciated her extensive knowledge and techniques, and her unique combination of classic midwifery and modern medicine. If you are searching for an intelligent and encouraging midwife, Ash is your gal.

  • I worked with AE Johnsdottir during her training at Casa de Nacimiento for several very intense weeks. She was very open to learning and willing to test out ideas that were new to her. She listened well, then researched the options. Her sense of humor lightened tense settings, but she was never inappropriate with it. Her honesty was remarkable. I recommend AE Johnsdottir.

  • Ash is such a great midwife! She made me feel secure and knowledgeable about our home birth. She also adapted very well to my family's needs and performed her services up and above the standard midwife. 10/10! See you next time!

  • Ash was an absolutely wonderful doula. She supported me before, during and after my baby's birth by meeting with me to work out my birth plan, attending an appointment with me, answering any questions that I had from her strong knowledge base, and helping me to stay grounded and focused during labor for my successful unmedicated VBAC. She shared excellent resources with me including a binder of birthing and postpartum info and websites with current research to help me make decisions. She always responded right away to any communications and got to the hospital very fast when my labor was moving at lightning speed. She stopped by for her postpartum visit and jumped in to doing chores around the house. She was both friendly and professional. I would highly recommend her doula services and imagine that she is an excellent midwife as well.
