Hi!
This is our 2nd baby and we had a lovely student midwife with us for our first pregnancy and delivery so more than happy to have one this time too (if there is one around)!
We live 15 mins past pakenham and will be delivering at warragul hospital. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and due may 17th.
I'm doing shared care with my gp and an ob. I'm happy to let you be involved in the pregnancy as much as you'd like. :-)

Hello there, I'm planning a home birth for my first baby in Sydney Eastern suburbs. Ive talked to a couple of independent midwives who seem wonderful so im feeling really positive about my decision to take this route. I would be very open to talking to any Doulas who might like to attend a home birth. In fact It was my Friend in England who is a Doula who Inspired me to Explore this option in the first place. My edd is 15th July 2013

Chasing a student - preferably one I don't work with!

14 weeks pregnant, VBAC, birthing with an independent midwife, with a high risk score for Downs, so you'll get to experience amniocentesis if you get in soon.

In Perth, birthing at Armadale. PM me original.gif

I'm a student midwife NOR at ECU and tried asking few friends to take you on but they are all NOR and armadale is too far to committ to with our study/prac load. Maybe try calling ECU there maybe other students needing ladies or even Curtin as most of their students will live SOR. Goodluck original.gif

Hi,

Im 5 weeks pregnant with number 2, due 2nd October 2013. I will be delivering at Port Macquarie Base Hospital.

I had a student midwife join me on my pregnancy journey with my first child and loved having her along for the ride, would love another student to follow along again this time round.

I must warn you though, my first pregnancy and labour were extremely straightforward and uncomplicated so it may be a bit boring again this time round biggrin.gif

Hello  waves.gif

I am 6 weeks pregnant EDD 8 October 2013- second baby.
Live in Essendon and  awaiting confirmation that I will be delivering at RWH.

I'd love a student midwife or doula to support me and advocate for me. My first pregnancy and birth was quite straight forward although I did cop frequent comments about my size and baby's size and suggestions I should have a c-section. I laboured naturally and birthed a 10lbs 2oz boy with no tears or complications. I'd love for this pregnancy/birth to be as lovely.

Please PM me if you can help out

Hello Doulas,

I am 35 weeks pregnant with the first and will be delivering at RNSH - St Leonards.
I've read a lot about doulas, and the job you do and would love to have one presented for the birth of our son. I personally think it will be so helpful having an extra support person there.
Unfortunately my DP is being very closed minded and doesnt feel the need for a doula. So hopefully together we can change his mind!
if anyone interested, please PM me.
I hope I didn't start looking for a doula too late!

Hi there

I'm 15wks along, due 12 August 2013, and booked into RPA (Camperdown, Sydney) through the Midwife Group Practice.

After a traumatic first birth (though a technically uncomplicated vaginal delivery) I'm convinced of the value of knowledgable support people!

I've chosen a qualified doula but I'd love to have a student doula or midwife also at the birth to support my doula, and also as my back-up person if my doula falls ill and can't attend the birth. My partner will be at home looking after our son so it's doulas I'm relying on!

Please PM me if you are able to assist.

Many thanks, Joss

Hi I'm Jess, I'm 20wks atm and looking for a student midwife.

My first pregnancy resulted in a non-elective c-section for obstructed labour and I am expecting to have an elective c-section this time around at Armadale Hospital, Perth.

If there are any students looking for mum's in that area please pm me original.gif

Wow, found one already! Thanks EB for setting up the two student midwife sticky threads!
