Ashley Stebbins and Arielle Fears are two passionate individuals who joined together in 2015 to create Music City Doulas


After working as successful independent doulas within their own respective doula businesses, they realized a huge need for inclusive, compassionate, and unbiased support for families of all composition in Nashville and the entire Middle Tennessee region.

Music City Doulas is a group of hand-selected, professionally trained and mentored doulas who want to make profound change in the way that people are supported during their journeys into parenthood. They believe in individualized care, evidence-based education, and unbiased support for all who seek their services, as well as professionalism and knowledge in the birth space to complement the work of their clients' doctors, midwives, and nurses. 

From its inception, Music City Doulas has been and continues to be an industry leader setting a new standard on professional birth and parenting support in Middle Tennessee.
