Midwife Support for Planned Hospital Births
Full Spectrum Midwifery is mainly a home birth service though we also offer a monitrice service which is more than just labor support. A monitrice is an assistant who has clinical skills to monitor aspects of labor such as fetal heart tones, blood pressures and vaginal exams. We attend you at home during early labor, and monitor you and the baby to make sure everyone is healthy. We give support and guidance until you have progressed well into labor. Our monitoring enables you to remain comfortably at home until the appropriate time. We then accompany you to the hospital while continuing to provide support and encouragement. We help guide you with any decisions that you may be faced with at the hospital. As your advocate, we oversee mother/baby attachment from the start by encouraging no separation and early suckling.
