Women must feel a sense of comfort and trust with the people who will be present at their birth. Woman's Choice Perinatal Services offers a free consultation to ensure that you and I both feel that we are a match for one another.
Free consultations take place via zoom video meeting or at our office.
I am officially on call for your labor once you reach 35 weeks gestation. At the onset of labor, I will arrive at your home or meet you at your birthing location. I will remain with you from that point, until one hour postpartum. One follow up visit will take place within 3 weeks post delivery.
A Montrice performs the duties that a doula would perform WITH the addition of offering clinical skills. A montrice is NOT a doula, and should not be confused with one; as a doula cannot perform clinical skills.
As a Montrice and Patient Care Technician, I am qualified to do things like check your blood pressure, listen to fetal heart tones, check urine or potential fluid leaks, and even check your cervix in labor (at your request only!!!), and more.
As a Montrice I DO NOT take the place of your OB or Midwife!
Prior to attending your birth, we will have three visits during your pregnancy where we will discuss what you expect or want from your labor. As well as what you expect from me. Basic monitoring of you and your baby's well being are offered. We will also have the opportunity to practice pain management and coping exercises. Clients can request one additional appointment if needed. Prenatal appointments at our office is what's included in your package.
You also receive a voucher for 1 free ultrasound during your pregnancy.
