So I wanted to get this done in case I have to go off the radar for a bit. Please let me know if I missed someone who signed up. I double checked to make sure that everyone who signed up and qualified was included, but stuff happens, so let me know. Also please be sure to read the information from admin (at the bottom of this post) about birth buddies and info sharing. The basics are that you will exchange info (usually cell phone numbers) with your designated BB and then when you go into labor, call or text your buddy who will come here and update the rest of us.
Here is the info from Admin. Please read.
*The member accepts any / all risks involved (i.e. neither you nor Pregnancy.org are responsible if they choose to participate.)
*You do respect the confidentiality of ALL personal contact information submitted and under NO circumstance share it with anyone outside of admin(that would be in an emergency) without the permission of the member other than within the guidelines for the exchange (i.e. the person they are matched with would receive their info. No one else.)
*NEVER post anyone's personal contact information or allow anyone else to.
*We do have eligibility requirements for participants. This is not meant to prevent members for taking part in the fun but insuring some protection for our members that those signing up are *legitimate* members onsite. Eligibility for participation in exchanges (any form!) are set at a minimum of 3 months Pregnancy.org membership and a minimum of 300 posts. Of these 300 posts, for birth boards that are 2 years and younger -- 100 posts should be on the board hosting the swap. For all others -- 50 posts from the board offering the swap.
