More About Me

Hi! I’m Sophie Dann and I am a Community Midwife at Birmingham Women’s Hospital.

I am so excited to be able to offer the Real Birth Workshop to expectant parents in the Midlands area. I am passionate about exploring your birth wishes and preferences, and discussing the amazing process of birth.

I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life, different cultures, different backgrounds, and different beliefs. The Real Birth Workshop gives you a chance to explore your feelings (and possibly worries) around birth, and prepare for the awesome experience of birth.

During the surreal times of 2020, I am committed to continuing to provide face-to-face classes wherever possible (or online if you prefer). Please check out my website to see the measures I have put into place, to allow me to continue seeing families in person.

Please note I will only be offering private antenatal classes on a 1-2-1 basis while the Covid pandemic continues. I am based in South Birmingham, but I am happy to travel.

I bring a wealth of experience to my sessions, having worked across all areas of maternity including being fortunate to attend many births in hospital and at home. I have also worked as a Research Midwife and I am passionate about bringing the latest evidence-based information to expectant parents. I always want to be learning more and am currently undertaking a part-time Masters in Clinical Health Research. I firmly believe we can always be improving healthcare and understanding the choices available to pregnant people. I hope to bring this same viewpoint to your Real Birth Workshop, discussing evidence-based choices and information around birth.

Please do get in touch and I look forward to helping you have an awesome birth experience.
