From Sophie's website: "I’m Sophie Misouri, a bilingual Sudbury-based doula, the founder of Wild Oats – and a mom of two who understands firsthand how much of a game-changer doula support can be. ​Though I studied Psychology and Anthropologie (at Laurentian) and am a graduate of Collège Boréal’s Occupational and Physiotherapy Assistant Program, it was my own birth experience that inspired me to become a doula and start Wild Oats.

With my first daughter Annabelle, who was born in 2016, I endured 26 hours of unpredictable and intense ‘back labour’. Out of exhaustion and desperation, I requested an epidural – and ended up pushing for two-and-a-half hours. The experience left me scarred – both physically and mentally.

Determined to have a different experience the second time around, I sought the help of a doula when I became pregnant again. With her in my corner, I felt informed, supported and empowered– and ended up having an incredibly positive second birth experience in 2018. In addition to giving me another daughter – sweet Nina – that second pregnancy and birth experience changed the direction of my career and life’s work. I knew even before Nina was born that this was my calling and began the process of certifying (through Bebo Mia). The rest, as they say, is history."
