    Default Birth Buddies (doula) Townsville

    Just wondering if anyone has had a doula through Birth Buddies in Townsville. What was your experience like with them?

    I'm in Townsville
    I didn't have a doula, but I do have a student mid wife following me which has been great. They come to all of your appointments and will be at the birth to support you (if you want them there). They then do a few anti natal visits too. Great to have someone there to talk to and txt any time you have a question.
    I know there was a student looking for pregnant woman on one of the Townsville FB pages the other day, I think the it was the Townsville Mums & Bubs one. Maybe look into it through the hospital.
    I'm 2 days overdue now so hoping the big day is soon.

    Thanks

    Yeah I had a student midwife last pregnancy and am having one this time as well, my midwife is organising it (I'm through the birth centre).

    Good luck with your birth!

    Cool, I wish I'd known about the student mid wife program when I had my first. Would have been great to have the extra support.
    Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy
