I didn't with Gemma but I had no clue about NCB, etc. With Ash I did hire one but ended up with her back up (who I liked better). My major issue was that even my doula started pushing me to get an epidural. I would have been better off with just my DH at that point. He knew I could do without pain meds and was the only one who stuck up for me! If we ever do it again I think we'll be doing a lot of things differently including not hiring a doula. The only thing I really liked about having her was that she talked to me and kept videos playing on my laptop while my DH was napping.
