Sofia Doula Services
Gently guiding you in your birth journey
Hi! I’m Sofia, and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to be your doula!
I’m trained as a Birth and Postpartum Doula, and as a mom of 3 I’m very familiar with the process of birth, as well as the life changes that come with it.
I was born in Portugal and LOVE meeting new people and making new friends! I have a Master’s in Public Health, and after traveling and working in Africa and South America I married the love of my life.
As a mother who experienced postpartum depression, I am well acquainted with the challenges and adjustments that start once the baby is born, and as a Doula I am here for you!
I believe pregnancy and labor are a special and sacred time, therefore it is my goal to help you have the best labor experience (by using physical comfort measures, words of encouragement, meeting the needs of both you & your partner, advocating for the choices made in your birth plan, and helping you find your own strength and peace during labor).
When I'm not busy helping a new mom, you can find me trying out a new recipe, playing board games with my kids, or taking care of the 'gazillion' plants I have at home.
I look forward to working with you, and to helping you feel empowered and prepared for your desired labor & delivery experience.
I offer a variety of support services personalized for each client. Depending on when you hire me, I provide advice on everything from nutrition and exercise to developing a birth plan and picking the right birthing facility.
