Should we use a doula for our hospital birth?

It seems like using a doula
thing to do now for hospital births and this is our first child and we won't have any family/friends around for support in labor. I've heard a lot of good reviews from friends and in pregnancy/parenting forums as well.
However, it is $600-1000. But, I am pretty sure that our insurance will cover some of it (looking into it now).
For those of you that have used a doula or explored it, anything that you can share would be helpful.
