      Sofia is so compassionate and kind to those around her! She listens and offers practical and loving advice and knowledge. I know that her doula clients always appreciate her calming presence and gentleness. So grateful to know her and call her a friend, sister, and colleague

      Having Sofia as my doula made my birth experience such a wonderful one. I had already had one hospital birth and one unmedicated birth when I became pregnant with my third. I had always thought that hiring a doula wasn’t necessary because I could just get support from my spouse or midwives. While this is true, I got more than I ever imagined hiring Sofia for this pregnancy. She helped me mentally and emotionally prepare for my birth, and kept me thinking positive even when complications arose.
      Sofia was incredibly intuitive during my pregnancy and birth. She knew when to step in and encourage me and gave me complete peace of mind knowing that I was supported and capable of achieving the birth I hoped for.
      The entire process would not have gone as smooth if it wasn’t for her, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

      While the birth of our child was different from what we had put on paper, one thing that was constant and a comfort as we welcomed our sweet boy was Sofia. Early on in our pregnancy we knew we wanted extra help and support as we prepared to have our first child and we cannot express how much we are grateful to have made this decision. Immediately as we were looking for a doula we gravitated towards Sofia’s warmth and empathy. Which was on full display throughout all of our prenatal sessions, labor/delivery, and postpartum care. During our 24+ hour labor Sofia was a source of strength and comfort bringing in all of her expertise and amazing ability to make a hospital room feel more like a home. When I look back on the day of our son’s birth I see Sofia as an integral part of being able to maintain my composure, empowered to make our wishes known to the hospital staff, and ultimately get through one of the most painful yet beautiful days of my life. If you are seeking a doula who has a heart for you and your family we highly recommend Sofia Richman.
