A monitrice is a midwife who provides labor support like a doula. Unlike a doula they can perform appropriate medical tasks at home, such as:

  • checking cervical progress
  • checking blood pressure
  • checking fetal heart tones

This can be a great option for a family that needs/wants to birth in a hospital with hospital personnel, but would like to labor at home for as long as possible and have midwifery expertise as part of their labor experience.

I offer 2 types of monitrice services.

  • Birth Monitrice: as described above, this is like having a doula who can perform medical services.
  • Full Monitrice: midwifery care for your pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience for a planned hospital birth. If you are interested in this service, visit the midwifery page.

Happy Family
