Birth Center
On Friday we had our first appointment with the Midwives at NOVA Natural Birth Center and we both LOVED it! The staff was so welcoming and caring. We spent 2 hours at our appointment mostly talking and getting to know each other and we weren't rushed. We were loaded up with resources to read and really felt like our baby was important to them and not just another patient. Our midwife Mayann was very supportive and dedicated to making sure that I am staying healthy and growing a healthy baby. PLUS She told me I had good muscle tone (ha!) how could I not love her already!. We are really excited about our upcoming experience with the Birth Center. I really feel like it is the perfect fit for us, I even left with a whole bunch of natural goodies, pregnancy tea, herbal remedies, and homemade soap for my new natural kick :-)
