Midwife as Doula? Can a MOD move to L@D??

Who hired a midwife as a doula? How much did it cost you? I live in NW Washington.

My situation is complex...

Hospital A- not super vbac friendly. 45 min away. I would prefer to show up pushing. Free for me.

Hospital B- 75 min away. vbac friendly. Changing to this hospital could cost me a years worth of other medical expenses. I think the Max out of pocket it still only about 1000.

I am thinking of trying to hire a midwife as a doula to help with monitoring so I can show up to the hospital later and not be afraid that something is wrong. Possibly a doula just to go to the hospital with me and advocate for my wishes.
