Susannah Lucille Hayes

Immediately I liked Sofia. She's very down to earth, humorous and easy to get along with. Yet, she's strong, determined and so knowledgeable! With my first born I had no way to naturally combat my back labor and contractions. I was completely unaware there were any techniques to ease my misery. I'd always wanted to achieve a natural birth and a doula paves the way! After a few meetings with Sofia, my husband and I decided to make contract and jump on board with Sofia as our doula. Every question I had Sofia was there to answer at any time of day or night. At my next to last appointment I decided to have my membranes stripped, Sofia came in support. Soon after I went into false labor, though we thought for sure it was the real deal. Who regresses after 5hrs of consistent and progressive contractions?! Sofia met us at the hospital and although we didn't leave with a baby we left with a stronger bond. We laughed so much! The next week Violet would come. Again, Sofia encouraged and coached me through contractions. Sofia taught my husband and friend how to use counter pressure on my spine, hips and knees to combat my horrible back labor. Four hours they pushed and squeezed through each contraction just as I asked. Sofia helped me find my most comfortable position (sitting and putting pressure on my tailbone to relieve some back labor) which I was also able to maintain through the birth. If it weren't for Sofia, I could not have made it through naturally as I'd hoped. She was beyond encouraging each time I began to doubt myself. She reminded me "one contraction at a time" and before I knew it my beautiful daughter was in my arms and my dream had become a reality. I HIGHLY recommend Sofia's doula services. Please please consider having her by your side during this journey. You will NOT regret it. Best investment ever. I'm a stronger woman because of you, Sofia. Thank you for all you do! You are my angel. I look forward to having you by my side in the future again!
