Community and Support
One of the greatest benefits of out of hospital birth is that it allows for birth to be a family-centered experience. Sharing the birth of a new family member builds family unity, and can lessen sibling rivalry. Seeing birth as a normal part of life encourages children to have a healthy perspective on birth when they start their own families.
How you choose to give birth influences other choices you make as parents. Parents who choose natural birth tend to make other natural choices for their family. NOVA Natural Birth Center is a community of support for those choices. Explore our family resources, and learn more about these options.
Our Service Area: NOVA Natural Birth Center midwives serve families throughout the entire Northern Virginia area and about 50 + miles surrounding our Chantilly location.
