Hi! I’m Nova

I have been active in the San Diego birth community since 2004. Prior to that, I taught yoga for several years with a heavy emphasis on prenatal and childrens yoga. I love helping women and watching them transition into motherhood. For over fifteen years, I have worked with new mothers and have had great and enriching experiences with many families and their different parenting methods as well as cultures.
By nature, I am an intent listener and calming, meditative presence. I am a generous spirit who believes in empowering and supporting women during this special time in their lives so that mother and partner have a positive experience to remember.

Wowed By Womb Service

“Nova was our partum doula for three weeks after we came home from the hospital. My husband needed to go out of town on business. I was very nervous being alone with my newborn son and being a first time mom. Nova took all the worry away!  She stayed with me and was my right hand person. I never had to ask her to help me. She was always 10 steps ahead of me thinking about what I might need. As a new mom, I sometimes didn’t know what I needed, but she did.   Her professionalism and knowledge of post natal care is second to none.

We utilized Nova on several occasions in similar situations and finally to take a trip back east to see my family. I can’t express how deeply I appreciate everything which she did for myself and my son on this trip, from carrying many bags through the airport, to helping me breastfed on the plane. She was amazing, not to mention her photography. She documented our trip from start to finish and always with the professionalism she exhibited while in our home.
Nova has a deep caring for others and the child’s wellbeing. She made my homecoming experience amazing and we are so fortunate to have had her in our lives.

We highly recommend Nova for  post partum doula services and photography. She is the entire package!” ~ Elizabeth M.

“Thank goodness my husband and I found Nova!  My husband had to go back to work one week after the birth of our first son, which left me alone at home with a newborn. I was struggling with breastfeeding and a low milk supply, and couldn’t even get the simplest of tasks done around the house. I mean, really, how do you make a sandwich or do the dishes when you have this tiny little person that needs you every moment of the day?

Enter Nova! She helped me with each of my needs.
Nova was referred to me through my birth doula, and she came to my home about three times a week, starting when my son was two weeks old. She stayed to work with me and my baby for about three months. With her support, I went from a mom needing to supplement with formula, to an exclusively breastfeeding mom.  I also learned the motherly art of multi-tasking with a newborn. I truly could not have done it without her!

I grew a lot as a new mom while Nova was with me. This is due to Nova’s calm and caring demeanor, excellent knowledge and experience, and her very special way with new mommas and babies. I could relax and just enjoy my baby while she was there to support us. I feel having Nova as my post-partum doula was a gift not only to myself, but to my son and family as well.”

“We were extremely fortunate to have Nova care for our baby boy during a difficult and medically serious time in his newborn period. We cared for our newborn ourselves full time until it became clear to us that it was in the baby’s best interest to have refreshed parents rather than chronically exhausted ones. That is when Nova came into our lives and we learned to trust her so we could peacefully have her take care of the baby and mother.

Although she appears surprisingly young, she is extremely capable, gentle, honest, and genuinely caring for the baby, mother, and family. Nova often surprised me with her thoughtfullness and her energy in restoring the home to a more organized and peaceful state. Her gentle nature is ideal for such a responsible, nurturing and supportive role with the baby, mother, and home.

We give our whole hearted recommendation to Nova as a person to whom you can safely trust the most precious person in your life, your child. We have worked with other doulas and Nova ranks among the All Stars in her field.”
