Mentored Birth Doula, Recognised Postnatal Doula
Welcome! My name is Sophia and I became a mother in 1993 and now have five gorgeous children and am wife to a gorgeous man in St Margarets, Twickenham. I have personally experienced and supported both hospital and homebirths and secretly would LOVE to do it all again (Shhhhh).
I began my Doula journey 5 years ago. During that time I have had the privilege of supporting so many beautiful women and families. I consider it an honor to be a part of the awesome and powerful journey into motherhood. I’m passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences to enable woman to choose and plan the direction for the birth that is best for them. I have such compassion when I hear that women are fearful about childbirth and motherhood but also recognise that our western world view on birth and has fostered those fears.
I encourage woman to connect with the innate abilities that our bodies have been designed to perform through knowledge, breathing and self care. I’m currently in training to become a Yogabirth Teacher, which means that I am growing in knowledge that will also benefit to any expectant mama.
My local hospitals are West Middlesex, Kingston, Queen Charlottes and Chelsea and Westminster and I would also love to support you for a homebirth.
The Doula world is one of love, support and kindness and I wholeheartedly encourage woman to consider the idea of engaging one either for birth support or for the vital postnatal period. There is always the right Doula for every woman so have a browse and contact whoever resonates with you.
