"I was quite anxious about the whole birthing process and what it involved especially having had a previous Caesarean Section.  My Birth Buddy took it upon herself to make sure all my questions and concerns were addressed...  What actually blew me away was my Birth Buddy's attitude when labour set in... I saw a sister and a best friend in her, who stood by me through it all.  I drew strength from her positivity, words and most of all the overall support she provided.  Many thanks, keep up the good work".

  • All our volunteers have to have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service)  check to make sure they have no criminal record. They also provide two references and a go through a detailed interview and induction. Without this they would not be able to volunteer for us. They all have to go through a comprehensive training programme and have to sign up to a strict confidentiality agreement.
  • All our volunteers are parents from in or around the local area, who have a passion to help parents and parents-to-be get the best possible care and enjoyment during and after their pregnancy. We want parents and parents-to-be to benefit from this invaluable service that aims to help parents, babies and families to make the best start.
