I was a "phone doula" for a couple doing a UC in Phuket a couple years ago. Not quite that easy because I could only rely on what I was hearing and not seeing. I should have a webcam up and running by August and of course you already have my phone #s.

As for the "have you searched enough" type comments. Believe me, she has. As did I. There are just no options here. Well, unless you make them like I did and just UC, twins and all.

I respect that you left no stone unturned to find a local midwife to attend your birth. However, If you want a midwife to be involved, so as not to be on your own while giving birth how about going somewhere else to give birth. Go to the midwife to have your baby.

As a doula I have been hired by families that come to the USA to have a baby. They nest themselves in a short term sublet to homebirth, or an extended stay hotel, then go home after they had the birth in America. Just an idea. Then you can have a choice of midwives in Bangkok.

It's not uncommon for women to travel elsewhere to give birth.

Best wishes to you in creating
the birth you want.
