I was back and forth on it, mostly bc of cost, it is a bit pricey around our area. Most hover around $800 here, but we really need the extra support and advocate bc we are vbacing. I would recommend to def look into it. I think the best way to find one is to contact your local chapter of ICAN (international cesarean awareness network), they will have a great number of names for you to work with. GO for it, and sometimes you can even get insurance to cover part or all of the cost thru reimbursment.

Thats so awesome!! =) I remember the hunt for our doula was kinda nerve wrecking... its weird interviewing people to attend your birth! Like you doulas are pricey here but i told my husband it'll be worth every penny so I can have the birth I want!! So glad you found someone hwo is a great fit =)

I've just found out I'd better look into that too.
