sophia heick, ncm student midwife

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. Sophia is enrolled in the National College of Midwifery and has been apprenticing in California since 2014. In her spare time she enjoys frequenting coffee shops and riding around town on her bicycle.
