Hi, after having complications post delivery of my second child and loss of mobility during the pregnancy and post pregnancy (I couldn't walk), I am considering getting extra support.
Any views and recommendations on what I should go for? I'm not entirely sure what a doula would do and assume an IM (independent midwife) will mean having the same person available for all AN appts and the birth.

Always happy to chat about your pregnancy and birth options, alongside and postnatal needs. Everyone is different and need different levels of support. I would ask as many questions as you can and discover your options
