Anyone have a rec for a doula for a homebirth? Was a doula helpful in your homebirth? I'm not sure I will even need or want one. Really I'm thinking it might be useful in case of transfer - I might need the support then. Thanks!

I know a lot of people like Janet Hall. She's out of Naugatuck, but travels to the Fairfield area.

I didn't have a homebirth but I used Birth Partners and was VERY happy with them.

Mostly sane mother to twins.
