I am Sophie; mum to Poppy & Lottie, wife to Ross, and qualified doula from Adelaide, SA. I completed my doula training with the Australian Doula College at the end of 2013 and not long after, completed the Certificate IV in Doula Support Services.
I am passionate about birth, babies, breastfeeding, and the spectrum of choices involved. I fully believe in a woman’s innate ability to give birth without intervention but I also understand there are times when intervention is truly necessary. My role is to support without bias and provide information as required. As your doula I will support you in all of your choices, help to guide you through your options, and hopefully inspire you to find your inner strength to birth with confidence.
Please email me via the Contact tab if you would like further information about the services I can offer you, or to make an appointment for an obligation-free interview.
I M P O R T A N T A N N O U N C E M E N T I have recently decided to take a break from taking on birth clients. This is due to a work opportunity for my husband that is just too good to pass up. Because of this I cannot commit to attending births for the foreseeable future. I will still be running Beer and Bubs: childbirth education for men at the pub with the amazing Erin from Nurture the Goddess, and I will still be offering Birth Planning sessions (see my Packages for more info). And I will absolutely return to supporting births sometime in the future but for now this is right decision for me, and for my family. With love and blessings, Sophie x
Beer + Bubs is held every 6 weeks at The Cumby in the Elizabeth Room.

"Imagine what might happen if women emerged from their labor beds with a renewed sense of the strength and power of their bodies, and of their capacity for ecstasy through giving birth” ~ Dr. Christiane Northrup
