Services

Birth Consultations:

We are skilled at helping families find the RIGHT care for them during the child-bearing year. We will provide education on your choices, provide care provider resources and help you make the best decision for your family in a supportive & caring environment. Cost: $150 for 1.5 hour consultation.

Montrice:

Having a montrice support you and your birth partner throughout labor has clinically meaningful benefits and no known harm while also increasing the likelihood of a normal vaginal birth. It also decreases the chances of:

  • C-section
  • Use of pitocin
  • Use of pain medications
  • Newborn being admitted to the NICU or having a low Apgar score
  • Chance of being dissatisfied with the birth

Because we are certified professional midwives, we are able to monitor mom’s and baby’s well-being at home before going to the hospital or birth center or prior to the arrival of the client’s midwife in home birth setting. This option offers the birthing couple the peace of mind of labor support by a competent, experienced midwife which can be very beneficial for VBACs, first-time mamas and those who have had previous trauma in their birth experiences. This additional service includes the above plus:

  • Periodic monitoring of fetal heart-tones

  • Monitoring of maternal vital signs

  • Cervical assessments as needed
  • $1700

A monitrice is NOT:

  • A primary care provider

  • Replacement for the care provided by your partner, family or friends. But instead we complement that care by offering support and coaching.
