Niina and Barry
Sophie was our doula for the birth of our second baby. We didn’t really know what to expect from a doula beforehand, except to be there during the birth for extra support. Sophie provided so much more than that. She really wanted to know what makes us tick and what we want, value and expect from birth. She then provided lots of information (books, internet links, DVDs…) that were suited to our needs. She has a vast amount of knowledge on natural birthing, and if there was anything she didn’t know, she would find out for us. Sophie has a yearning for learning, and wants to share information. We had a home birth, and we are so grateful to have had Sophie with us to support us through one of the most wonderful and unforgettable experiences of our lives. Sophie helped Barry with the pool, held my hand during contractions, reminded the midwives of specific wishes of ours when we were preoccupied, and provided a calm energy throughout the birth. Sophie’s warmth could be felt in the house even after she left. Thank you Sophie!
