website here for Mothers Care doulas. The lady I had is called Debra Keskin and she was brilliant. She lives in North London, so you would have to contact her to discuss whether she could get to where you are in time.
well, Dinny has recommended one that she used (possibly originally recommended by you) and I'll hopefully be making contact with her shortly. I just want to raise the issue with my midwife first to make sure she is happy with the idea. Meeting the mw on Wednesday.
yes, we should meet up sometime - that'd be really nice. I know what you mean about the doula being a possible DH substitute. I'm a bit worried about DD being left alone (well, without either of us) for too long too. But am not going to fret too much about it...there is too much else [manic grin]
Dinny's doula sounds great.
do you live somewhere in S London too? I'm sure you said b4 but I can't remember now....
Sounds like you are almost sorted for a doula- a fab idea. If plans don't work out, try contacting "South London Independent Midwives" who are a fab source of info. Have you got long before new baby arrives?
Am also in SE London and awaiting baby No.2 - struggling with what to do with DD. Think I'm going to be brave and make it a family affair at home!
