Website: sowingrootsdoula.com

Serves: Seattle, South King County and Tacoma

I am a young, queer, mixed Black doula with an empathetic approach to this work that centers support and safety because our communities deserve deep and restorative care. Community-based doula support is important because experiences differ between groups, and families deserve to have their support person be someone who can understand their experiences and empathize with their concerns and fears. The ability for people of color to support and uplift our communities is one of the most important paths towards liberation because sharing experiences provides a level of comfort and familiarity that lends to caring for each other in deep and restorative ways *plays FUBU by Solange*

 

Ashleigh Griffin

Phone: 360-595-8085

Email: ashleigh.griffin8@gmail.com

Serves: Seattle

I have demonstrated my commitment to children and am passionate about serving their parents, who I believe can change the world. I think the most effective change occurs when communities are empowered and able to take care of their own. I’ve seen firsthand the effects of families being separated from each other or not having the support they need to take care of each other, and I believe the most important thing I can do is serve the families and children of my own communities. When parents have the support they need in pregnancy during their children’s first years they are able to build strong foundations for their children so those children can grow up and serve their own community.
