Nice to meet you! My name is Sophi, and I’m a birth doula (labor support professional) working under the name Blackberry Babies. I serve clients in and around San Francisco, California. You can find out all about my services at the Blackberry Babies website.
I serve as Events and Program Director for Doula Trainings International and had the pleasure of launching DTI’s first-ever OneDoula Thriving Together retreat in Tulum, Mexico in October 2015.
I graduated from Stanford University in 2013, majoring in American Studies with extensive additional coursework in Computer Science and Studio Art. I spent a year as an Associate Product Manager at Google, affording me an amazing opportunity to learn at one of the world’s most visionary companies and travel the world. Ultimately, I realized that my heart lay elsewhere and left to pursue a new line of work. I’m delighted to report that doula-ing is more than I ever could have hoped for in a career.
When I’m not busy with work and projects, you can often find me singing, cooking, reading, writing, or spending time with my husband and our dog.
