I teach a natural childbirth class and always match my students with a "mentor mom" volunteer who has traveled a similar path.

Last class I had a student pregnant with twins, and I matched her with a local woman who had one twin med-free vaginally, and the second twin by c-section.

I have a student pregnant with twins who will be taking my next class as well. I'd love to match her with someone in Michigan who had twins vaginally, without pain meds. Being a mentor mom volunteer means sharing your birth story, offering information via e-mail and/or phone, and being a source of encouragement for her to reach her goals.

I'm in SW Michigan, but if there's no one local, I'd love to at least match her with someone in the state.

Thanks, Jen, for letting me know about this thread

To the OP...

Five years ago I birthed my twins both vaginally without meds in southeast Michigan. I'd be happy to mentor your client.

I'm a childbirth educator and doula and I also co-lead Oakland County BirthNetwork.

My email is lisa@birthandmore.com
