My sister in Nottingham has just been raving about her postnatal doula - a lady who is coming into her home each day to help her with her newborn twins. She sounds marvellous - she does the washing, ironing shopping, cooking,and even cooks a meal for the evening. MOST importantly she encourages my sister to go for a sleep each afternoon. She sounds like an angel - I wish I'd had one. Has anyone else heard of them? My sister says she found her on the doula UK website.

There was a article about them in Baby Surrey, when I was pregnant the first time around, my dh and I couldn't understand who would actually have one, now I have just had ds2, I know if I had the money I would have loved one!!!!
Sounds like a dream!!!! Wouldn't want them doing much with the baby, but all the other bits sound great!!! I can imagine it would be great with twins, especially if you don't have any family that live nearby!
