Title says it all. VBAC experience would be a plus. Since my home birth plan didnt work out i'm pretty sure I'm going to use the midwives that deliver at Danbury Hospital again. I think a doula would be helpful since I had a rather traumatic birth experience last time.

You may want to check out Birth Partners, if you haven't already.  They have a bunch of doulas who work for them (all over the state) on staff and will match you up with someone who fits your wants/needs.

I did not have a doula, but I took Janet Hall's class and it was lifechanging.  Birth Partners is a well respected group of doulas, highly recommend that you look into them.
