Aquagenesis: Pregnancy & Natural Birth
My name is Sophia Michalopoulou, I am a perinatal therapist, I specialize in newborn and baby aquatics and I am a pregnancy and birth doula.
I began to see birth from a baby’s perspective while working physically and psychologically with my own and my clients’ birth and pre-birth memories. I focus on preparing women and their partners to conceive their child intentionally, working through any fears or inhibitions which might impact their pregnancy while bringing in an awareness of their baby’s needs so that they can make conscious choices for their pregnancy and birth.
I work with water where possible to support the entire birth journey to accompany a baby’s transition into this life with natural ease. I also use sound, touch, and water to work with babies from birth to help them get used to living in a new body.
