Montrice Services are Available for $1700
Genesis Birth Services offers monitrice services for clients planning an out-of-hospital births or who wish to labor at home if possible before heading to the hospital.
A monitrice is a non-medical attendant with assessment and clinical skills.
A Montrice or Labor Assistant is skilled at checking vitals such as blood pressure, fetal heart tones, assessing labor progress, newborn assessment, breastfeeding support, and antenatal education. A monitrice does not perform these tasks at the hospital, birthing center, or when the midwife has come to your home unless the caregiver consents. A monitrice does not make primary care decisions or diagnosis.
You will receive all the typical support you can expect from a doula but with added clinical support from a trained montrice/ midwife assistant.
At the arrival of your midwife, or transferring to a hospital or birthing center, your Montrice will assume the role of Doula only. No clinical support will be available. Your Montrice is not a Midwife and will not catch or assist in the birth without your provider present. While we believe in birth autonomy, if you have no birth professional available such as a midwife or OB, we will not be able to attend the birth event in its completion.
