How was the experience? What sorts of things did they discuss with you/help you with? Did you have them at your birth? What sort of role did they play at the birth if they were present? How did they interact with hospital staff, if you birthed at hospital, or other midwives if at a birth centre or at home?
I am thinking of getting one, as I'm thinking of having someone a little more experienced by my side at hospital this time, as i found that they pretty much left me to my own devices last time which was great, but it would be good to have someone there just for extra support. I also like the idea of helping out a student.
*please if you are a student midwife don't use my thread to advertise your availability, I just want to hear from people who have used student midwives*
