Are you within 15 miles of St Albans?

Is your baby due November or early December?

Would you like to hire a birth doula for free? (I will need to take a deposit which will be returned with your birth story)

Would you like a written birth story of your labour and birth?

I am a trainee birth doula and as part of my training, I need to attend 4 births. I have attended 2 and have (fantastic) written refs from these already and am now looking for my last 2 births.

Can't help you with Nov / Dec I'm afraid but may well be looking for someone in that area in May, so worth keeping in touch

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.... is it your first baby?

Thanks Phraedd Yes, my first baby and I'll be 39 by then, so relatively old for a first-timer.

Obviously early days yet but, for various reasons, including medical, I don't think DP would cope very well with a long drawn out labour so may think about other sources of support

thank you
