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

liahgen Tue 02-Oct-07 22:16:25

yeah tis kind of a prerequisite being preggers.!!

Maybe in the future...??

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

Piffle Tue 02-Oct-07 22:31:27

laih my exp's lovely girlfriend is due in latedecember - she I think would be very interested (Faversham) - she has bicornuate uterus (all ok and going well)and has had regular checkups but is wanting as natural a birth as possible - she is a pilates/dance teacher and yoga maestro too
I can talk to her tomorrow and get back to you
I'll email you now to let you know etc

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

Have you your own website? Do you think it makes a big difference?
