Has anyone had experience with both? I am in between opinions right now. I would love to have a Doula, but am leary about insurance not paying for the bill. My midwife said she will commit to being avaiable during my birth, but I wanted to know if she will be doing the same thing as a midwife or if she'll be different. She knows I am shooting for a natural birth. I do know that Doulas bring gadgets and things with them for labor.
