Birth Doula Services
Starting at $1000
We believe doulas are for everyone who wants one! We can make something work if need be. We are open to trade and sliding-scale when necessary.
Sophos Doulas accompany individuals in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. Both of us have completed DONA International doula training. As doulas, we draw on our professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, communication with caregivers to make sure you have the information that you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labor. Whether you are birthing at home, a birthing center, or in a hospital, we will be by your side throughout the process. We provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning and other techniques for comfort and relief.

Full-Spectrum Birth Services
Sophos doulas provide support to individuals across the full spectrum of pregnancy decisions, experiences, and outcomes. We provide telephone and in-person support to individuals before, during, and after an abortion or loss and are available for support at the doctor's office, clinic, or at home. We are also available for miscarriage, adoption, and fetal loss bereavement support.
For these services, we support our clients on a pay-what-you wish or sliding-scale basis.
