A few days ago, I wrote about how the doula was really late for my appointment with the surgeon. I emailed her today, requesting a partial refund. I paid her $150 for her services, and since the appointment was about half over when she showed up, I asked for her to refund half of that money. That seems more than fair to me; maybe I should have asked for a full refund. I figured I am more likely to get half back, though. We'll see.
