I’m Ashleigh! 

A twenty-something year old Mama to three wonderful, adventurous toddlers. They make me laugh, they drive me absolutely bonkers and their energy is undeniable. 

Becoming a mother at 23 wasn’t the easiest. While I had always wanted to have kids I found myself feeling very alone in the motherhood world. I had very, very few friends who were in the parenthood journey alongside me and I felt underprepared for the emotions, work and difficulties that go alongside having a baby. I felt my confidence slipping from under me, I was so freaking tired all the time and I wish I had been better prepared.

I’ve never wanted someone else to feel that same way.  

Being This Mama has grown into a community filled with truth, love, conversation and inspiration. From normalizing bodies to thrifting, DIY to funny stories and lots in-between – Being This Mama has a little something for both parents and non-parents alike. It’ll make you think, make you laugh and sometimes might make you cry.

Most of all, it’s embracing the idea of never letting a new parent feel unprepared in her journey. 

Welcome! I’m so happy you’re here.
