 Monitrice Services

Welcome to our Monitrice team, where we are dedicated to creating a nurturing and safe environment for the birthing mother and her precious little one. With our extensive training and passion for birth, we craft personalized birth experiences that align perfectly with your unique desires and needs.

We understand that every woman holds her own vision of what feels safe and natural during labor. While we specialize in attending and supporting women in birth center or homebirth settings, we also bridge the gap between the hospital and homebirth experience with compassion and care.

Many mothers desire the presence of a labor doula and wish to stay at home for as long as possible during labor, but may have uncertainties about when to transition to the hospital. Our service provides gentle monitoring of both mother and baby throughout labor, ensuring a smooth transition to the hospital when it's time for delivery.

Through thorough prenatal consultations, we gain a deep understanding of your needs and preferences. You benefit from the expertise of a licensed midwife and the compassionate support of a labor doula as you navigate labor's various stages.

Our comprehensive support cultivates peace of mind for the laboring woman, empowering her to focus on coping skills without worrying about unnecessary interventions. We provide guidance on laboring in the hospital, medical interventions, and evidence-based research to help you make informed decisions.

As your monitrice and doula, we advocate for your best interests every step of the way. Your midwife remains on call throughout labor and provides essential postpartum support in the comfort of your own home.

With our Monitrice team by your side, you can embark on your birthing journey with confidence, knowing that you are supported, informed, and empowered every step of the way.

  • The typical schedule for our Monitrice Package includes (after the initial visit) prenatal visits at 18, 24, 32, 35, and 40 weeks. We can meet earlier if needed.

  • Before each visit, we ask that you have your primary obstetric provider fax your most recent records to us or that you bring hard copies into the visit.

  • The postpartum visits are at your home because we want you to rest and recover! The first two visits typically take place at 3-5 days and again from 1-2 weeks. From 2-8 weeks, we have 4 other visits scheduled as needed as our clients  share their preferences.

  • We are always on call 24/7  and available for your birth and other urgent matters. The Monitrice Package requires, however, that you have an O.B. or other appropriate provider as your primary care provider.

  • In labor, the monitrice team will arrive at your home in active labor. The team will determine when it is time to go to the hospital. In some cases.

  • In addition to the care provided by the midwives, you will also have the support of a doula! They will be your primary support in early labor and at the hospital.
