Labor monitoring and monitrice services.

For hospital birthing families who want a "close-to-home" birth experience, we offer labor monitoring, also known as monitrice services. Midwives are trained to assess your  labor progress and monitor your baby's condition.  Using our skills to help you stay home as long as you want, we observe progress, coach you through the labor process as needed, listen to your baby's heart rate, and then we go with you to the hospital when you are ready.  We stay with you in a labor support role until your baby is born, and then offer postpartum care in the days following birth.
