If it comes down to one or the other, choose the Doula!!!!! Mine actually taught my birthing class so that worked out well but she was the life saver in my delivery. Originally we weren't going to have one but thankfully we changed our minds. I don't know how your birth center is but at mine the midwifes leave you alone. They come in to check you then leave you be to labor. My midwife didn't really sit with me until I was 8 cm and almost delivering. My doula was my care taker. I couldn't imagine having done that with just Dave, he would have been lost on what to do and we took an 8 week class.
