Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to let everyone know about a volunteer service in my area that helps mums and dads prepare for labour and parenthhood. They are called Birth Buddies and Pregnancy Pals and they are mums specially trained to help other mums to be. They especially help mums that may need a bit of extra support due to drug/alcohol problems, domestic violence, mental illness etc. They also attend the births of mums who would be on their own otherwise!!!!

Anyway they are in finals of the People's millions which will be on ITV on the 29th at 6pm(ish) and are in with a chance to win £60,000, which will allow them to help even more mums. They need lots of public votes to do this, so please, please vote for them on the day!!!!!
