Sophie was a good listener as well as grounded. She created the space for us to be able to express what we needed to say and to ask questions. She is both calm and knowledgeable, and was very helpful to us both during and after the birth. During the birth it was like having an angel at my side, a combination of mother, sister, friend, coach, counsellor. Even though the birth was the opposite of what I had planned, we were able to greet the turn of events and decision with more calm that would have otherwise been the case.
