Sofia Caballero Stafford, CD (DTI)
Birth & Postpartum Doula in NYC

I am a certified full spectrum birth and postpartum doula based serving families in Manhattan and the tri-state area. My goal as a doula is to help parents feel confident and supported during pregnancy, birth and in the postpartum period.

Birth is an identity-shifting experience and parents deserve to feel supported, powerful and held during this experience. I work with my clients to help define their intentions for a positive birth experience and plan for their birth and to prepare them for when things do not go as planned. This starts with first learning to trust our instincts so that we can feel empowered to advocate for ourselves.


In my experience, all families can benefit from support during this time and her mission  as a doula is to empower her clients to be informed advocates for themselves and harness the strength in  every soon-to- be parent as they cross the threshold of birth. After all, when a  baby is born so too are their parents.


I have worked in global health for the last 7 years and will soon be starting my next chapter at Yale to become a nurse-midwife.  I am passionate about reproductive justice and birth equity and is a member of Doulas en Español and the Citywide Doula Initiative in NYC.

Sofia answered our (many) questions and also gave us extremely valuable information that we would not have have even thought to ask. When I found out I had to have a c-section, she prepared me for exactly what to expect! She comforted me throughout the process and helped us ask the right questions of our doctors and nurses
