WHAT IS A MONTRICE?
A Montrice offers support to people in labor that differs from Doulas and Midwives. A montrice will not deliver your baby but is skilled to check certain medical assessments such as your vitals, the baby’s heart rate, and dilation. They offer hands-on support and will advocate for you and support you upon checking in to the hospital.
WHAT ASSESSMENTS CAN A MONTRICE DO?
Checking Baby’s Heart Rate: A montrice can listen to baby’s heart rates with either a doppler or an electronic fetal monitoring device.
Monitoring Vital Signs: Your montrice will monitor your main vital signs such as your temperature, blood pressure, respiration and pulse rates.
Checking Cervical Dilation: This check is done by examining the cervix to see how many centimeters along you are.
