Not for a home birth - think I'll have the baby at the Whittington, but my last labour (at another hospital) was fast, chaotic and frightening, and left me with a 3rd degree tear. Really want someone to be calm, awake (dh CANNOT function if things happen in the middle of the night) and just generally around.

hi there,

which number baby are you expecting?

would you prefer trainee or recognised?

oh yes, what is your home address area? (not home address obviously)

hello! It's baby number 2, i think I'd prefer a recognised doula. And I'm in archway/tufnell park area - really down the road from the whittington hosp.
