Choose Your Own Birth Journey with NOVA Birth Services

Nobody does parenthood the same. From the moment you get that positive pregnancy test, you’re constantly researching and making decisions on what your parenting style will be. From deciding on cloth or disposable diapers to finding your stroller, you’re learning to listen to your gut to choose what’s best for your family. Your delivery should be no exception! If you’re looking for a birth professional who will let you take control of your delivery, I would love to tell you about NOVA Birth Services. This center is dedicated to providing you with advocates who will be there for every step of your birth journey.


About NOVA Birth Services


NOVA Birth Services was established in 2009 to provide parents with personalized help for their birth journeys. The center believes that prenatal and postpartum care should be a collaborative effort. They employ former nurses, licensed doulas, childbirth educators, and counselors. They specialize in offering non-judgmental, low-pressure help so you can make choices that are right for you. 

And when they say they’re here for every birth style, they mean it! They offer care for home births, hospital births, scheduled C-sections, medicated births, and unmedicated births. Essentially, they’re here to provide an education and help you find your voice for your delivery. 



At NOVA Birth Services, you can find both birth and postpartum doulas. During your pregnancy, you can work with a doula to learn more about your options and ensure you feel prepared once labor begins. When it comes time to deliver, your doula will be there by your side, offering affirmations and making sure you can see your birth plan through. 

While some hospitals may have set restrictions on birth companions because of the pandemic, NOVA birth doulas have found a way to still be there. They offer teleconference support to ensure you can still have them in your corner. On top of their doula services, the center offers Monitrice support. With this option, you’ll have a midwife for prenatal care who will serve as your doula in the hospital. 

Your postpartum doula is one of the best tools to help you with recovery. A postpartum doula will provide parenting information, support you as you adjust to life with a newborn, and help you find ways to get the rest you need.



NOVA Birth Services offers comprehensive classes built to make you feel prepared for parenthood. Their childbirth class covers the stages of labor, relaxation methods, and breathing tactics, followed by everything you need to know about caring for a newborn. You can also find prenatal support classes and information on bringing home a baby.
