I have never used a doula. HOWEVER, I wish I had with my last birth. In the last few weeks I felt very strongly that I needed one, but thought a) it was too late and b) my midwife is a trained doula and she would be able to play that role. However, she was too busy setting up to really be there as much as I needed. She did pretty good, but I would have liked having someone who was there solely as a doula. Next time I plan on having one.
