I wasn't sure what to expect from a birthworker. I am a first-time mom with a lot of questions and knowing a lot of myths. Both my partner and I are so happy Sonia was able to be there through our journey. One of my main goals was to truly understand the whole pregnancy and birth process so that I could make decisions for myself without feeling pressured by doctors or other people. Sonia answered all my questions and explained everything I had concerns about, giving me the confidence, I needed. I always felt like I was talking to a friend which helped me feel completely comfortable, I never felt embarrassed or ashamed which was important to me. She also helped me feel like my pregnancy and birth were more than just physical and were very spiritual. Sonia stuck by me postpartum and continued to guide me. She made me feel like myself, my partner, and my baby were important to her, and I really appreciate that. It is obvious Sonia is passionate about her profession and helping people. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
