I hired a doula with my last pregnancy - (VB2C turned Cesarean cause of baby's heart rate). The cost was 500. We paid her 300 something to begin with, the 200 later, but the 200 was a gift, as she had agreed on a total price of 300 something.We didn't hire her till the 3rd trimester (we'd moved), and she did great. Stayed with me for 36 hrs of labor and did some midwifery type things for me (but an average doula WILL NOT do this!). She was studying to become a homebirth midwife and wanted to make sure all was well with me and the baby, cause I was going for a vb2c. She did some breastfeeding things after the baby was born. Well actually I told her to go home, because she'd been awake with little sleep for 3 days!


WORTH THE MONEY IMO!
