    Default Birth Buddies Official Sign Up

    I know we briefly discussed this a little while ago (thanks Margaret!) so here is an official sign up.

    If you would like to be assigned a birth buddy, please comment on this thread!

    A 'birth buddy' is a partner who is assigned to you that can notify the forum of any important updates during your labour/when baby arrives while you are unable to get to a computer. You are not required to sign up for a birth buddy, however if you feel it would help you keep us informed and are comfortable having your information shared with someone in the group, please do sign up! Some of you have siblings on Preg.org, or people whom you are already in contact with via text, etc. If you would like to rely on them to update us instead, feel free!

    Once you sign up, you will be asked to send your personal information to a Community Host, who will then share your personal information with (and only with) the birth buddy to whom you are assigned. Personal contact information will not be shared with anyone other than your birth buddy, or in the public forum at all. Although we do not have "hosts" for our birth board yet, I have host privileges from my last birth board and can handle the exchange of personal info.

    In order to participate in an "exchange" of any kind on Pg.org, there are minimum requirements for posting to ensure the safety of our members. 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. If anyone has questions about whether or not they meet these requirements, I can check for you.

    So, please sign up in this thread! Sign ups will be closed this Saturday, May 18th at midnight. Pairings will be made the following week and sent out.

    Please PM me your contact information as follows:

    Name:
    How you wish your birth buddy to contact you: Ex. email address, phone number, text
    Due date, and date you "expect" to have baby on (we try not to pair people who will be birthing too close together)

    Happy last few weeks to us all!

    I'm in as long as I meet the requirements.

    I do expect to have a great wifi connection at the hospital. Jon's grandfather had open heart surgery and we spent the entire day there and had a very strong signal. But we will see!!!
