Difference between a Montrice and Doula...

A doula does not perform clinical tasks.  A montrice offers clinical judgement, where as a doula is not allowed too.  Someone providing monitrice service is a midwife. However, once we go to the hospital then I become the role of the doula. This is a wonderful option for women that would like to be monitored and labor at home, but deliver in the hospital setting.
