For women who are choosing/needing a hospital birth at a hospital other than the hospital Sage-Femme can admit to, Monitrice care can provide you with a personal care provider to transition with you from home to hospital.
More than a doula, a Monitrice provides labor support and comfort measures for coping with early active labor. She also has the clinical skills to monitor your health and your baby’s responses to the stresses of labor. Your Monitrice offers one-on-one midwifery care until the transfer to the hospital is appropriate. Prenatally, your Monitrice will counsel you on the risks and benefits of hospital protocols, and she will work with you one-on-one to develop a birth plan that considers what you and your partner value most for your labor and birth experience.
As needed, we will review your health history with you and discuss risk factors that may influence your plan of care for birth. In addition, your Monitrice will advocate for you prenatally and during labor and delivery to ensure that your plan of care is clinically appropriate and informed by your full participation.
We encourage you to reach out to our team with any questions you may have.
