If you would like to have a trainee Doula or Midwifery student follow you through your pregnancy and birth please post your details here including the area you are in and your EDC.
As well as posting your interest in this thread, take a look at the pinned threads for Midwifery students or trainee Doulas, you may find someone in your area.

Posting personal contact details is not permitted but you will be able to communicate via the pm system.

It would be appreciated if you could edit or remove your post once you have made an arrangement with a student or trainee.

We hope this makes it easier for both members and trainees/students.

Kind regards.

hello to any midwives out there!
i just got my BFP and by my best estimate i'm 4 weeks along.
just a couple of midwife related questions.
do you need to pick midwives associated with the hospital you are going to? or can midwives go anywhere with you.
how do you find midwives? are there agencies you can go to to meet with lots at once?
are midwives covered under private health?

i'm in WA if that helps

I am 20 weeks & would love to find a student midwife or doula in the Toowoomba area (I'm not in town but I am having all my appointments at the hospital).

I have three children already. I have naturally birthed all my babies & hope to again. I have been classed as high risk due to my BMI & a number of miscarriages.

I had a student midwife with my last birth & it was a very positive experience

Hello midwifery students and doulas! I'm Carrie I'm in melbournes west and due late July, this is my second baby and I'm looking for support during pregnancy and labour as I had a difficult delivery with my first baby but had a very low risk pregnancy with no complications throughout. Thanks!

Hi, Are you looking for a unique birth? I am pregnant with baby #8 due the end of March 2018. I am giving birth in the womens in Melbourne. I live in the south east inner suburbs of Melbourne. Looking for a student doula or midwife who can support me through labour. I normally have very long - over 24hrs of early labour. So will probably do best with a couple people to be on call to take turns to support me during labour.

Hi, I'm 29 weeks pregnant and am looking for a doula (or possibly a midwifery student) in Sydney (North Sydney).

It is my first pregnancy and so far it's been pretty breezy without complications. My due date is 29th July.
Hope to hear from you

I've read in a few places that you can contact the midwifery schools directly and that can be a good way of connecting with midwifery students who are seeking mums for their continuity of care practical work. In Victoria I think it's the ANU.
