What is an average cost of a doula? I am considering hiring one, don't have a problem with what she charges, but am really curious about what the going rate is.

I used to live in NY and looked into hiring a doula but after I found out the going rate was $900 I choose not to have one. I know it's a skilled thing but $900 for four hours of work (they all just came for labor and I have short labors and anything postpartum was extra) seemed like an awful lot of money. I sure wish I could make $225 per hour!
