A few questions:

I'm looking for advice on the best way to go about finding a doula. I have no friends in my city who have used one so I have no one to get a referral from.

When in the pg do you first meet with your doula?

I'm also wondering good questions to ask a prospective doula.

TIA from a mama on the VBAC path....

I asked my midwives for a referral. They were familiar with many of the doulas in my area, and recommended a few they thought would work well with dh and I. I set up meetings with two of them, and we just got together and kinda let the conversation go. I met with both of them for about an hour, and decided after that which we would go with. This happened when I was about 4 or 5 months pregnant.

You can also go to your area's tribe here, I see lots of requests for doula/mw recommendations there.
