Monitrice & labor and birth services

  • Assessment of the laboring person at home in early labor (blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, cervical exams IF desired)

  • Assessment of baby at home in early labor (intermittent fetal heart tones assessed with handheld doppler)

  • During my time with you, communication with your care provider is encouraged, pursuant to their recommendations on when to contact them in labor. This varies with each person, as well as when to leave for the birth center or hospital.

  • Continuous support during labor and birth

  • Remain with you in the immediate postpartum to aid facilitation of baby feeding and bonding


 

1 postpartum visit within the first week of birth

  • At least 1 visit at your home within the first week postpartum

  • Baby feeding support, informational and emotional support

  • Connection to community resources

Monitrice services can be a substantially helpful addition to doula services for those who wish to labor at home before delivering at a hospital or birth center. Monitrice services can also be beneficial for those who are delivering at home. As a monitrice, my primary role is of doula support and I DO NOT take the place of your health care care provider. 

Investment: $1,300

$400 fee due upon hiring me as your doula. The remaining $900 is due before 36 weeks, unless a different payment plan has been arranged. Please note that although I am contracted with insurance companies as a Licensed Midwife, insurance does not typically cover doula or monitrice services.

KIND WORDS

"Morgan is an amazing doula. She was so kind, helpful, and pleasant to be around during the birth of our son. Thank you so much!" - Cliff, Poulsbo

"Morgan was the doula for both of our son's births. At each she was there fully for both me and my husband and provided amazing emotional and physical support. Additionally, her prenatal visit and availability made us feel even more prepared for the births. Highly recommend her!" - Courtney, Edmonds

"She's the kind of soul that makes me want to have tons more children because of how empowered she makes you feel. Her love and care gleams through everything she does as she's supporting you to be the strongest woman you're capable of being during birth. I was terrified of birthing my son but with her support and the support of my birth team I can say I had the least scary birth I could imagine. Thank you Morgan you're a gift to your field. I want to be her when I 'grow up'." - Courtney, Kingston
