I've been researching doulas in NYC, and it seems like the average fee here runs about $1000. I'm planning to give birth with an OB (but one who is VERY pro-natural birth) in my hospital's "birthing center" (which is more conservative than a standalone BC but still very supportive of natural deliveries.) So. Would you spend $1000 on a doula? We can afford it, I guess, but it's still a large chunk of change for us. Along those same lines, would it be worth paying $250-500 for someone with less than 25 births under her belt?
