The woman I heard this from was a doula whose client did this and ended up having her baby en caul (sp?), so the info is purely anecdotal. I would actually really love to know what...
I learned the hard way on this one. my story is a little similar, I had a really good pregnancy (actually it was miserable due to all day sickness the entire time and PUPPS, but i loved it and I was healthy) untill about a week before my due date my bp read 140/80 but went down after laying on my left side.

I hope it helps! Keep us posted. Feel, better mama.
I called BW today and they are sending me some info. I am pretty interested in hosting a workshop around here too. I am just really drawn towards them. I am really not too worried about recruiting students. There are lots of doula groups/birth networks here. We'll see I guess!
