Sofija J.

Sofija comes to InJoy After a decade of working and living in Washington DC, where she trained and honed her skills as a birth and postpartum Doula. After having spent most of that time volunteering in the reproductive justice movement, Sofia found a home in caring for families and new babies after completing her training with Ancient Song Doula services. She has training in postpartum care, placenta encapsulation, and basic lactation. 

 

Sofija's Doula story begins at Winnie Palmer, where, at the age of 21 she saw her beautiful niece come into the world. While the beauty of the birth experience was overwhelmingly positive, she also saw that there was another side to the story. Sometimes, moms don't get the care they deserve. Having seen this pattern repeated over and over with friends and family, Sofia decided to do something about it! She got her doula certification, and the rest is history.

 

She is a full-spectrum Doula, but mostly works in birth and postpartum care, she finds those the most fun. Sofia focuses on bringing a light and cheerful disposition into any birthing suite (when appropriate). Between cracking jokes (usually at dad's expense, mom is busy) and giving world-class massages, Sofija is a focused doula providing non-judgmental inclusive care for her clients. Constantly available to you throughout pregnancy to answer any questions, no matter how big or small, Sofija will be your champion, best friend, cook, and back-up.

PostpartumdoulaConstance.jpg

Constance T.

LM, CMP, NRP, CNA 

Constance Tucker has been a licensed midwife for 7 years, a DONA trained doula since 2011, and has over 25 years experience working in the medical field including with newborns and previously as a pediatric nursing assistant.  She has worked with a myriad of different providers over the last three decades, giving her a unique, multifaceted, and wide perspective to many aspects of care.  She is dedicated to supporting and working with families through transition into their newly expanded family life. From fertility to the "fourth trimester", she believes parental empowerment, support in personal decision making, and honoring inherent knowledge and understanding are the cornerstones of healthy family growth.  Education is her passion, as "knowledge is power" but with the extremes in information existing in parenting circles due to social media and the internet, it can be difficult to discern which information will work for a specific family.  Helping clear the clouds of confusion, she is organized and focused on parents' needs in order to guide their process to finding what works for them. 

 

"I learned so many lessons from the wonderful opportunity of working with the Amish.  They are surrounded by community, elders, and family for support.  Pregnancy, motherhood, and postpartum are honored and the culture provides so much love to the new family.  This model is needed in the world we live in; where mothers are going back to work at five days or two weeks postpartum.  Families need support with newborns and time to heal and adjust.  This adjustment doesn't have to be scary or overwhelming; people just need more support." 

 

Constance works as a midwife and postpartum support, holds current NRP and CPR certifications, enjoys supporting families in their transitions, and loves to do laundry.  She is extremely dedicated to her work and on her days off enjoys spending time with her family, reading, continuing education and research, and working on her herbal remedies and apothecary.  She is located in Altamonte Springs and serves a 20 mile radius.
