About me

My Philosophy

Having kids of my own, I quickly learned that every birth is unique. Birth does not come with clearcut directions. All three experiences for me were wildly different from each other. It wasn't until after my third child was born that I realized that I had a say in the way my birth went. I walked away feeling fulfilled and empowered. Which is how Mother Doula came to be. I want every woman to feel satisfied with every aspect of their birth the way I did. With an unwavering support team and the education with evidence-based research (which then in turn gives you the ability to make informed decisions regarding your birth), I can guarantee that you will walk away feeling amazing about your birth, no matter the outcome.  As a birth doula my goal is to help you navigate all that comes your way when having to make decisions regarding your birth and how to process things that you may not have been planned for. My goal is to hold the space for you-  with my knowledge, calming presence, and willingness to jump in wherever and whenever needed I will make sure that you know that you are supported, validated, understood, and empowered.

My Story

I'm Ashley Garrett. I am born and raised in Tucson, AZ. First and foremost, I am a wife to a wonderful man, Jordan, and a mother to three beautiful babies- Madison who is 7, Morgan who is 4, and baby Jordan who is 2. They all keep me on my toes, but I wouldn't give it up for anything.

 

I became a Certified Nursing Assistant soon after my first daughter was born. I loved working as a CNA. Helping others in their most vulnerable state brings me immense amounts of joy. It's embedded in my  DNA. I started taking classes towards becoming an RN (specifically in Labor & Delivery), but put that on hold to focus on my family while my babies are still babies.

 

My true passion lies within birth and everything that follows. Which is why I became a certified birth doula. There's nothing more rewarding than the journey into motherhood. It excites me to be apart of that journey and to help women navigate all that comes with birthing their babies and their journey into motherhood. I feel insanely blessed to be able to be apart of something SO big. To be trusted by these families and then in turn hearing their gratitude and praise about what I do, just solidifies my passion for this work. 

 

Pregnancy is hard, birth is hard, becoming a mother is hard, being a mom and raising children is hard. My goal is to help EVERY mother feel supported. To know that she is not alone. That she is heard, and recognized, and praised- for all of the hard work she puts into motherhood every single day!
