Birthroot Midwifery, Dawn M. Finney CPM Columbia, Missouri
A monitrice is a labor companion who functions with a scope of practice between that of a doula and midwife. The same wonderful emotional and physical labor support is given, but with the addition of clinical skills such as cervical checks and fetal heart monitoring, as well as a deeper understanding of the process of normal labor, medical interventions, and normal postpartum progression.
If your desire is to labor at home and have respectful and knowledgeable monitoring of you and your baby’s progress with clear indication of when it’s time to go to the hospital, or if you are facing some health challenges with your pregnancy and you desire a labor support person with greater knowledge and experience, you may benefit from the services of a monitrice.
The fee for Monitrice services is $1,200. Payment plans and Paypal payment options are available.

Unlimited availability by phone or email, from beginning of services to two weeks postpartum
