Hi all, I have just finished my training as a birth and post natal doula, and in order to broarden my experience, I am offering ladies my services for FREE.

I would like to visit for 2 antenatal visits in your home and attend the birth of your baby. I offer emotional and practical support.
I DO NOT OFFER MIDWIFERY CARE OR ADVICE. I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED

If you are interested, please email me

Happy pregnancies to you all. xxx

It's really lovely of you to do this, I had DaiyMOO volunteer her Doula services for me as I'm a single mother, perhaps you could contact local HV's to see if they have anyone in need?

liahgen Tue 02-Oct-07 22:10:46

Oh yes, I heard Daisymoo was a doula, Maybe she'd let me pick her brains, lol

Hadn't thought of HV, will do a local drive around. Did you have a good experience? x

Maybe in the future...??

PillockInThePumpkin Tue 02-Oct-07 22:19:11

it was an amazing experience, and really changed the birth from being something dreadful to being a memory I will treasure forever. She is now ds2's godmother too smile

I can talk to her tomorrow and get back to you

Piffle, that's fantastic,thank you so much.

Yeah sorry, bit slow on the uptake there daisymoo/whooo.

Am multi tasking at mo, trying to set up an online shop aswell. Because I haven't got enough to do already. lol
