A monitrice is an advanced doula that has had extensive experience working with moms in many different situations, and that has also been under the care and tutelage of midwives.
Monitrices are skilled in advanced birthing techniques that can speed up the labor process, enhance the birth experience, and help adjust a baby’s position during birth. Monitrices are also trained in the use of many clinical skills such as the monitoring of blood pressure and your baby’s heart tones, as well performing cervical checks, assessing labor, and in helping to diagnose the progression of labor. A Monitrice helps parents have the peace of mind that their baby is doing well, allowing mom and dad to stay home longer during birth while waiting for the further stages of labor to progress.
