The Midwives at NOVA Natural Birth Center, love to help families bring their babies into the world, and will be by your side every step of the way. We have both Certified Professional Midwives and Certified Nurse Midwives on our staff. Midwifery Care means “with woman” and our midwives will be with you and your partner as you bring your baby to birth and beyond.
They are on call 24/7 for any concerns by email, text, or phone. You will have a primary midwife who will be available for any non-emergency questions or office hour calls. You will meet the midwives at your prenatal visits or if you prefer, you can schedule your visits with the midwife of your choice. Each of the midwives will take call for labor and after-hour calls, usually a week at a time so you may want to meet all of us.
