Of the two that are in the UK, there's one that's a 15 minute walk from my house! And the lady who runs it is also a doula! It seems like my prayers have been answered. I meet with her on Wednesday. It's a godsend, believe me. DH has told me he's so scared about the birth, that he doesn't want to be there. So, I either hire a doula or get a good friend (of which I have very few enough of to ask to be at the birth of my child) ... at least DH has said he'll at least be at the hospital. He wants to come in as soon as it's all over, just doens't know if he can handle all the pain. It was very hard for him last time. TBH, he was relieved I ended up with a section, as that's how his first daughter was born (breech). It was familiar and no labour to go with it.
Anyway, I'm grateful to find someone who knows the NHS system and how to get what I want and who can teach me to stand up for myself to get what I need.
