There seems to be a great demand from EB members for the care of a trainee doula or midwifery student during their pregnancy. So I've decided to start a thread for these people.

If you would like to have a trainee doula or student midwife follow you through your pregnancy please post your details here including the area you are in and your EDC. Once you have had the baby please edit your post or post again so that interested parties know that you are no longer a potential candidate.

Hope this makes it easier for you all, members and trainees!  original.gif

Old thread is here.

Hello. I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and due on 22nd June 2012. I am located south of Adelaide at Sheidow Park and require a trainee midwife and/or doula. I am attending FMC for antenatal care. This is my 7th pregnancy and 5th baby. My last labour was only 45mins, so I guess someone close by to me would be handy.

Hi!

I am currently 34 weeks (due on April 4th 2012) and have just got my docs to agree to let me go naturally (VBAC). Due to the short notice I havent been able to organise anything so if there are any trainee doula's or midwives in CANBERRA that would like to assist me in my birth please PM me.

Thanks!!

Thought I might post here in the off chance there is a student Midwife/Doula in the Central West NSW area (particularly Cowra & surrounds)? I'll be birthing at Cowra Hospital.

I'm currently 17wks pregnant with baby #4, due 29th July, and I'm going for a VBAC.

If you're able to help, please PM me, as I may forget to check back in here.

Thankyou.

hi,  i am a 30yo mum of 3 who is currently 7 weeks pregnant ( due nov 12 ) and i'm looking for a doula/student midwife to help me at home prior to me heading into hospital as well as my hospital birthing experience.


i have had my previous 2 in the birth centre at RBWH and i'm looking for as natural an experience as possible, however i have since moved to the Fraser Coast region and my only option now is the local public hospital.  I am sincerly hoping whoever i choose will be able to be a strong advocate for me as the local hospital is known for intervening.  My first birth experience was not good.  ( i was young and had horrific midwife's drugging me up and being rude due to my age ) I am now terrified of delivering in a hospital environment without a personal advocate.

Thank you.

Posting here on the off chance there may be a trainee doula in my area!
I am due 27th October and will be giving birth at Port Macquarie Base Hospital.

Hello.

I'm only 5 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child but I'm starting my search for a student doula who is able to service the Brisbane South.  With such a long way to go until "D"-day I wonder if it's too early to ask ...  

We're planning a homebirth.

Love and light

Hi

I am due with baby no 2 on 10 October 2012.  I am hoping to have a VBAC at the Redlands Hospital.  I am doing share care in the lead up with my GP on Brisbane's east.  

We had a student midwife last time around and she was such a wonderful support during my 14 labour and emergency c-section that we would love to explore the possibility of having another student midwife/doula this time around.

PM me if anyone is interested!

Thanks!

Hi Tanya,

I'd love to be involved with you during your pregnancy, unfortunately my email doesn't work through EB for some reason which is extremely frustrating, it keeps deleting the content of the message when I press send. If you are still interested, please feel free to contact me via PM.

Hope to hear from you soon,
Kim

Hi littleem, for some reason I can message you - it just keeps coming up blank when I try to send. Anyway. Hi there, I'm a student midwife from Melbourne but I've just moved to the colac area with my husband and 1yo. I'd be interested in following your pregnancy if you're still up for having a student? I can give you more details if you like, bit wasn't sure if someone has already answered your post so I'll leave it at that for now. Happy to meet up and chat and see from there too.  Let me know what you think. Private message me (if it works!).
