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.

Is january not an option? My sister is due 23rd Jan and may be intrested?

i already have a post natal client booked in for January and since she is feeling very nervous about having a new baby, i am reluctant to take on any births for January - sorry

Ok thanks anyway, good luck with training

Is no one due around this time or are you just too far?

I can be flexible (to a degree) with distance. I will travel slighlty further if you are willing to cover mileage costs grin

There aren't many things in life for free at the moment!

Hi, I'm not due til April so probably no use to you, but just in case...!

phraedd Thu 16-Oct-08 21:48:39

waiting girl - when is your due date?

Does 10 Dec in west London work at all?

sorry artichokes - the timing is perfect but the distance isn't.

I would like to be able to get to a loubouring mum within an hour and i think west london is pushing my luck somewhat.

You could always move closer to me for a couple of months grin I have a lovely spare room too if you like wink

phraedd - sure you've already done this but just in case you havent... have you tired posting in MN local boards and the relevant month threads in ante natal clubs?

Thank you
