home birth midwifery

Ryann Morales, CPM, offers expert prenatal care (including labs and ultrasounds if you choose), home birth, and postpartum care. The midwifery model of care is based on client choice and autonomy, shared decision making, and relies on current evidence. Children and partners are welcome to be as involved as you prefer in all aspects of your care. 

Fee. $4500, paid in monthly installments throughout your pregnancy. While the complete fee is due before birth, we do offer verification of benefits with your insurance company and a biller to assist you in getting the maximum reimbursement possible based on your insurance plan. You can also finance your birth with NOVA WHC through Med Loan Finance. You can learn more or apply at www.MedLoanFinance.com.

doula support

Birth doula support from Ryann Morales, CPM, one of the DC, Maryland, and VIrginia's most experienced birth doulas and one of the few midwives who provides doula services as well. Includes phone, email, and text support during pregnancy, a birth-planning prenatal visit, continuous birth doula support, breastfeeding support, and a postpartum visit.

Fee. $1500, paid in two payments. Because Ryann is a midwife, we are able to offer doula clients a verification of benefits with your insurance company and a biller to assist you in getting the maximum reimbursement possible based on your insurance plan. The full fee is still due up front. Repeat doula clients, please contact NOVA Birth Collective for special pricing!
