Connecting with Mentors and Midwives post-program?


Hi Everyone,

I wanted to get your opinions on a possible addition to this group. Right now, this is a group for VOF Correspondents only. We are considering making this an alumni group which would also include mentors and midwives, to keep everyone connected. However, we could also create a new alumni group just for mentors and midwives as well. What do you think about this? Would you prefer to keep this group to correspondents only? Would you like to integrate mentors and midwives? Please be honest, as your feedback will influence our decision.

Thank you,

Dear Rachael

In my opinion, it will be helpful to have editors and midwives in the same group. This way, when share problems/solutions or successes/failures in this group, they can also take part or give feedback to postings on the same group. They have been a huge part of our success and accomplishments, therefore, I think it would be actually better to have them included.

Best wishes.

Dear Rachel

I actually agree with what my sister has written above.Since you are thinking of that good idea. Really if my Natalie and my Kristin are excluded in this really it will mean am not complete. Same thing i believe those who will be awarded they know who has been the inspiration behind their success, therefore i second Gill.

All the best

Wonderful idea!

Of course it must be so wonderful to have editors and midwives in the same group. We can learn from each other more and more in this group.

Hi Rachael, like others, it is a good idea to have all of the mentors and midwife on this group, that everyone will get information and post from all and stay informed.
