We are so happy we chose Sophia to be our doula for the birth of our son!  Fortunately she was able to take us on as (mid-late) third trimester clients.  I gave birth at a birthing center and I wasn't sure if having a doula would be overkill and it definately wasn't!  My labor ended up being very fast and Sophia provided a calm, supportive and loving energy to quell my wild-woman-in- labor urges.  Our prenatal appointments were very helpful and she took her time with myself and my husband and we went over all the emotional aspects of pregnancy, labor and postpartum.  I felt very prepared going into my birthing experience with Sophia on our team and I would highly reccomend her to be on yours :)

I'm so glad I had Sophia as our doula. She has a very warm energy. She is extremely loving, calming, and positive person. She has a lot of knowledge, and good experience with hospital and home birth. She was very supportive and helpful during my prenatal and postnatal time, with good advices and recourses. During labor she helped me stay relaxed by easing the labor sensations with rubbing massage and calming voice. I definitely will want Sophia as my doula again if we have more children.

Sophia was a GREAT doula. When I first reached out to her about her assistance, she was really responsive and came out to meet me and my husband right away. I liked her off the bat - she's a good listener, patient and thoughtful and really cared about helping me get what I wanted out of my labor experience. She helped us to craft a birth plan, answered a lot of questions for me about what the different options were and provided me with additional resources to do my own research on the different medical practices. In the last few weeks of my pregnancy she checked in regularly and helped me when I had questions about what I was experiencing. I think she's basically exactly what you need in a doula - patient, a good listener, thorough and very clear and direct about what things mean. She can help you make sure you have a strong advocate for your birth plan in the room, which is really important.
