Sophia Heick


Sophia discovered midwifery while studying Medical Anthropology. The culture and traditions of birth throughout the world fascinated her and drew her to learning about midwifery in the US. She began volunteering at a birth center in San Luis Obispo, California and was hooked once she observed the depth of relationships and the amazing trust in the natural process of birth and the body. She has been attending births since 2014 and graduated from the National College of Midwifery in 2017. In her spare time she enjoys frequenting coffee shops and riding around town on her bicycle.
