Cover photo by Sophia Williams of Sophia’s Special Deliveries (sophiabirth.com). Sophia has been a doula since 2009 and is on a journey to becoming a homebirth midwife. She lives and photographs families in Sonoma County, California. She first learned about doulas and midwives when she was a nanny for a family who had a homebirth. That experience changed her life, and she has never looked back.
