Phone support during labor is available
The monitrice provides clinical support by adding this service to your doula package or alone.
Someone providing monitrice service is one who has training in assessing a woman's vital signs, palpate fetal position, monitoring fetal heart tones, and checking cervical progress
When the woman arrives at the hospital the monitrice then serves in the role of a doula if adding to a doula package, providing no clinical support. If just using this service then no doula support is provided.
This is an excellent option for women who wish to labor at home as long as possible before arriving at the hospital.
