I just finished the 8 week Peaceful Pregnancy Circle course led by the amazing Doula & Founder Sophia Paskell.This course helped me dive into the journey of pregnancy, birth preparation & motherhood.the creative combination of self enquiry, practical exercises, breathing & vocal toning tools, intuitive artwork & sharing amongst the women in the group were just a few aspects of the course that I found deeply transformative and nourishing through this rite of passage & transition into motherhood.I highly recommend this course for both first time mothers and equally for 2nd ,3rd, 4th time mammas etc :)
I am so grateful for not only the opportunity to reflect and find my centre through Sophias meditation circle, but also the support and group sistership I received during my pregnancy and postpartum. This is very much a shared journey and a beautiful way to connect with your little one during pregnancy.
My pregnancy journey with Sophia and the Peaceful Pregnancy Circle helped me to stop and take moments to ask questions within, and apply simple practices that allowed me to listen and connect; such as what is actually means to show loving kindness for yourself. The meditations were a way to ease my thoughts and look at labour and birth as something my I am designed to do and really cherish this miraculous life event. These practices definitely got me through to have the natural water birth that I had wanted.
Awesome. Always felt comfortable asking questions. Helpful, honest and easygoing. Very knowledgeable, covered topics in detail. Overall, 10/10. Thank you so much. I have learnt so much. It’s so nice to come to class and feel welcome.
I attended the Pregnancy Circle with Sophia for two terms during my pregnancy. This was honestly the best thing I could have done for myself while I was pregnant. I got so much from the classes including tools for labour, opportunities to connect with baby, preparing for being a mum and finding a community of other beautiful mums. Sophia is a beautiful and gentle soul. I will be back for future pregnancies
It was so refreshing to be given the knowledge and belief that birth can and should be calm, normal and natural. I can’t choose a particular feature of the class that I liked more, because it was all so beneficial. I looked forward to my class each week, it was a time where I was able to really relax, reflect on my pregnancy and the journey I was on, and connect with other like-minded Mums going through all the same things.
Sophia is amazing!! She took our Antenatal class, a couple of years back, and she was the coolest ever! Sophia was approachable and respectful to all different backgrounds, ideas and individual wishes ... and she fully knew her stuff, with a relaxed and fun personality!! Would really recommend her classes.
Sophia is fantastic! She took our antenatal class this year. Very down to earth and easy to relate to. She is very supportive of choices and is great to have ‘in your corner’. Highly recommend ☆
In 2011 I attended an antenatal class with Sophia, this was with my second child. My first child was delivered by caesarean and I wanted to aim for a natural birth with my second (VBAC). Sophia made the classes comfortable and she was very approachable and respectful to everyone. I happily had Sophia as my doula for the birth of my son, I can happily say that was the best decision I ever made!! Sophia knew how to help me without me having to say anything. After a prolonged initial stage and 8 hours of established labour I delivered my 8pd 11oz baby boy naturally!! I felt extremely good after the birth, I could get up and move around, I could hold my baby without pain, this was huge! This meant so much to me and I believe Sophia’s guidance helped immensely! With my first baby I ended up with post natal depression, my milk took a long time to come in and I laboured with no support, but with a successful VBAC with my second son the support to birth naturally helped me focus on my parenting goals and I breastfed for over two years and no postnatal depression! I highly recommend Sophia’s classes and I am so grateful and thankful to have met Sophia!
