So we had a "Meet the Doula night" at the midwifery office, and I got to meet a few of the local doulas.

I really liked two of the ones I chatted with. But now I have no idea how to pick between the two!!!

How to pick between two that are equally qualified, nice, educated?

How much do they charge and what do their services include? I'm sure they slightly differ. Also can you look up reviews?

Do you have a gut feeling? Was there one that you seemed to mesh with more than the other? If you really can't decide I'd ask for another meeting and see if that helps.

Yup ditto that! See if you can have a meeting with each one and I bet you'll see who you mesh with more. Labor & delivery are ALL about comfort and if you feel on edge it will make things more difficult. Also, you may want someone who's more in charge or less in charge...labor is hard but you may need someone to calm you down at times and a strong personality can help with that. BUT, you may want to be able to more freely express yourself. I'd really try to meet with them again, one on one.
