Alight Doula & Healing
Transformative Energy Healing
Serving families of all kinds in the Boston area!
The Mission of Alight Doula & Healing is to bring peace and empowerment to the pivotal processes of pregnancy, birth, and post-partum. This is achieved through the following principles:
Healing – Life, and birth, can be an incredible healing journey. We become the best parents we can be when we truly look at ourselves and let go of what no longer serves us. We use proven tools to navigate this journey with grace and ease.
Safety – Birth should be physically, emotionally, spiritually, and systemically safe. We combine medical evidence, traditional wisdom, informed advocacy and spiritual principles to ensure the holistic safety of the entire birthing family.
Empowerment – Birth is empowering! Becoming a parent is empowering! We use evidence and a combination of holistic practices (movement, nutrition, education) to support the innate power and responsibility of this process.
Nourishment – Families of all kinds must be nurtured. This means access to resources, community engagement, and loving care for the whole family from conception through the 4th trimester.
Evidence-based Doula Care + Lineage-Based Healing
Why work with a doula? Why get energy healing? Why both? The science is sound: continuous support through labor and birth leads to better outcomes. Physical and emotional support from a non-judgmental and highly trained professional reduces post-partum complications. We’re rebuilding our village. We’re acknowledging the incredible potency of this transition into parenthood (whether it’s the first time or the 6th!) and honoring it with skill, devotion, and practices that complement medical science.
But how do we discern what’s best? How do we identify what’s truly important to us, and then stand up for it? How do we trust ourselves when there’s so much competing information and opinions out there? How do we let go of old baggage and come to this experience with clarity and joy? I’ve curated the most powerful tools on the planet to help you do just that. Contact me to find out more!
My husband and I are so happy and grateful to have Sophie as our postpartum doula as we adjust to our lives with our beautiful newborn twin girls. We quickly felt at ease with her given her non-judgmental, open, supportive, and sensitive communication style. She is full of baby and parenting knowledge and community resources. When she hasn’t known of a resource we thought could be helpful she looks into finding these things for us, which has been especially helpful since we have so little extra time to do so ourselves. Her enthusiasm for this work and babies is ever apparent. She has helped us to take care of ourselves as parents by encouraging and supporting reflective conversations regarding this and our self-care. It has been so helpful to work with her.
I am incredibly grateful for Sophie. She made a huge difference for my partner Molly and I as we settled into life with our baby Maple. Leading up to Maple’s birth, she organized a meal train with our family and friends so that we had homemade food for weeks after we came home from the hospital. A mother herself, she knows the challenges of a newborn and helped us feel normal as the lack of sleep sent our sanity on cartwheels. She was there for us with words of guidance at every turn, helped us keep the house tidy and took care of Maple so that Molly and I could have a few moments alone. As an inexperienced new father, she helped me get my bearings on babywearing and bottle feeding. One thing that really impressed me was that when she felt like she wasn’t the right person to support us in helping with breastfeeding, she referred us to a wonderful lactation consultant. Sophie really made our post-birth experience the one that Molly and I had hoped for and I couldn’t recommend her enough.
I love referring people to Sophie! My clients that have worked with her have loved her and the energy and support she offers. She’s such a loving and calm presence and the doula community is absolutely blessed by her. 100% recommend.
Sophie Davis is an incredibly intuitive and nurturing healer and doula. I trust her, and feel deeply cared for whenever leave a session with her. She creates a welcoming and warm atmosphere wherever she goes, especially when it comes to her work. I really value having Sophie as someone to help me reset when I feel off-balance, need to heal, or just need space to reconnect with myself.
