    A Monitrice is a midwife who can provide prenatal care and care for mother and baby while in labor by monitoring the baby's heart beat, checking blood pressure, and checking the dilation of the cervix. The laboring mother can stay at home longer before going to the hospital , avoiding unwanted interventions. The monitrice accompanies them to the hospital giving more labor support and advocating for their wishes. Post-partum care is also given in their home giving wellness checks and nursing support.
