Meet Bella B's founder, Ashleigh Farrell. She has had a passion for expectant moms, infants, and families since she was a child herself. Harnessing that passion she went on to graduate nursing college and now works as a pediatric nurse while also pursuing her entreprenurial spirit.
In 2007 she decided to take a leap of faith and start her own maternity-baby-family company. Ashleigh founded Bella B, the perfect adjunct to her pediatric nursing career. She now showcases her great sense of style and humorous side in her Bella clothing, tees, and accessories.
In 2009 she welcomed her first child into the world and this has provided her a greater sense of passion and determination for Bella. "Becoming a mother has given me so much more inspiration for the company, it gives you a completely different perspective and I'm excited to see how growing our family affects the direction of Bella in the future. Living through pregnancy and spending my days with my newborn son intensify my love for what I do."
"I'm proud to offer a maternity company that offers something for the whole family. We have something for expecting moms, moms post pregnancy, dads, and baby. The Daddy line is especially exciting because we're at a point in society that Dads are taking a much larger role in parenting than before and they are proud and excited about it. And I am happy to announce that we will soon be offering tees for Grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and the rest of the family. Afterall, raising a family takes a village!"
"At the end of the day I couldn't think of anything I'd rather be doing. I get to use my degree and skill sets to work with moms and families in a medical sense everyday and at the same time I get to use my creativity and business sense to run my own company for those same people. It's a perfect blending of my lifelong passions and the start of something truly special."
