Hello! I'm looking for doula recommendations in the New Haven area. I would also consider using a student looking for experience.

Laurie Sweet sounds great but I really can't afford her. Is $850 the going rate in this area? I don't doubt that it's worth it but I definitely couldn't afford it.

There are a few doulas working toward certification in that area but I don't have their info.  $850-900 is the going rate for a certified doula in that area.  Laurie could definitely point you toward someone with lower fees.  You can also try searching on doulamatch.net
