If you think your own home is the best place for your birth, we will help you prepare with a home visit a month before your due date. Your birth will include all the same prenatal care, advantages and support of a birth at NOVA Natural Birth Center.
It requires a little more preparation and a bit of clean up. To get ready, you will need to purchase a birth kit and supplies, prepare your home for safety and cleanliness, rent a birth tub, and prepare food and a place for your midwives to rest. When you begin to have active labor, your NOVA Natural Birth Center team will join you at home. Your team will remain until you and baby are stable and ready for a nap about 2 to 3 hours after the birth.
