We were so lucky to have Arva as a doula!! She was our birth doula, and also our post-partum doula who supported me once my partner went back to work. She was so incredibly helpful and thorough in supporting me to prepare for my birth; she took a lot of time to understand how she could best support us in our birth journey, and she gave me lots of education/information leading up to my due date that helped us to prepare. She was a calm, supportive presence at our birth, and we were so grateful to have her there. As a post-partum doula, it was so helpful for me to have some help around the house, and it was especially nice to be able to have some time to myself and to know that I could trust Arva to take care of our little guy. I would definitely recommend Arva to anyone.



Arva is a kind, gentle, and warm presence for any person who wishes to pursue pregnancy, birth, and postpartum doula care. As a new mom with no support in a new town, Arva helped me feel informed and empowered during my pregnancy; safe, at ease, and concentrated through labour; and was a kind shoulder to lean on when we touched base postpartum. I highly recommend Arva for any or all of your doula needs, she is a beautiful gem and our community and babies are so lucky to have her.



When my husband and I met with Arva to discuss her doula services, we immediately felt a connection and knew that she would bring a calming presence to our pregnancy and postpartum experience (something I very much needed). And we were right! I'm so glad we got to work with her.

My pregnancy was challenging and there was a lot of uncertainty leading up to our daughter's birth. Arva provided support throughout, gently nudging me to advocate for myself and encouraging us to be fully informed as we made plans for birth and postpartum. She outlined what different birth scenarios could look like so we could fully envision them for ouselves. She connected us with helpful resources and shared insights from her experience and education that were invaluable. Even though we didn't have the birth we envisioned, we felt confident in every decision we made on our path to having a healthy baby - and Arva was a big part of that.

The first days and weeks postpartum were intense. Knowing Arva was available to chat or visit gave me some peace of mind during that challenging time. Again, similar to throughout my pregnancy, she connected me with helpful resources to solve some postpartum challenges. She checked in on me and gave me the opportunity to unpack my birth experience, providing support in her calm and competent way. She helped out around the house while my husband and I took a minute to relax with our daughter. As first-time parents trying to figure everything out, having Arva to consult with gave us such peace of mind. 

We are so grateful to Arva for her support and highly recommend her!

I connected with Arva in preparation for my first baby and am so glad I did.  Before the birth, Arva arranged a few meetings to prepare my husband and I for what to expect and discuss the birth plan.  The step by step approach to the different stages of labour and knowing what to expect helped my husband feel at ease.

It was very comforting to have her during birth to guide us and massage my back.  The TENS machine that Arva supplied was amazing to have as well. 

Afterwards, Arva gave us our space but stayed in contact which was reassuring to have her texting with support and knowledge, especially when my son had to be readmitted to the hospital.  Arva arranged a visit a few weeks later and it was helpful to be able to have a debrief of the birth as well have her share her knowledge on caring for a newborn.

Arva has a kind and gentle nature and I would highly recommend her services as a doula.




If you are looking for a doula look no further! Arva is an amazing doula! Very gentle, warm, respectful, non judgemental approach. Helps you connect with your own intuition on birthing and maternity care. Helped to bring myself and partner together as a team as well! Can’t say enough great things about her!! Great for post partum care too!

I worked with Arva/Perla Doula Co. during my second pregnancy after I had had a fairly long and slightly traumatic birth with my first daughter (without the guidance of a Doula). I had a lot of fear going into my second birth but once I started having helpful conversations with Arva, I began to feel hopeful that the second time around would be better. She was incredibly kind and genuinely supportive as she taught me strategies that allowed me to feel more in control, educated and empowered during this life-changing experience. Her words guided me through the most challenging moments of my life and I am so grateful to have had her there for me. Also, she delivers the most wonderful postpartum granola recipe (which I ate prior to giving birth so then had to make another batch). Arva is truly passionate and talented at what she does and I am so thankful for her. I would recommend working with Arva/Perla Doula Co. for anyone who would like an open, non-judgemental support system in their corner. If you do choose her- you are the luckiest!

Arva Nagy is a wonderful Doula. I have had some major changes and challenges since I found out I was pregnant, and she has been my rock since day one. I highly recommend her.

I met her early on in my pregnancy, and I felt connected to her from the beginning. She has a warm, kind, nuturing personality and she is so suited for her work.  She has so much knowledge, and I have been able to trust her and rely on her in a way that I never imagined. I feel like she is such a special person to me now. 

Arva honored my wishes for my pregnancy and helped me to get through my labor, she held my hand, and she empowered me to make choices that gave me a positive birth experience. She has helped me in my postpartum journey as well, since my baby was a newborn, and I feel like hiring Arva for postpartum support was something I didnt have to think about, she has been along this whole journey of motherhood with me since I found out I was pregnant, and now she supports me as a new mother. Arva helped me when I had severe postpartum anxiety, she helped me learn how to babywear for the first time, she helped me to go on my first outing with my baby by myself, she has met all of my needs as a Doula. 

I wanted to hire a Doula because I heard that it is an amazing experience during pregnancy and birth, and I ended up with such a wonderful and positive pregnancy, and birth story. I also had a huge amount of anxiety reduced because she has been with me in my entire pregnancy journey, she helped me when I gave birth to my baby, and she continues to help me and make me feel supported and empowered. I have an outstanding level of trust for Arva, and a bond that will last a very long time. I highly recommend Arva if you are considering a Doula, and/or Postpartum support.

You NEED Arva to be your doula!
I had "interviewed" a few doulas, and from the moment I met a Arva I know that she would be the person that I needed to help provide myself and my husband the additional support we needed during pregnancy, labour and postpartum. She is kind, warm, genuine, and nonjudgemental. She wants to honour YOUR pregnancy/birth story and will provide the support needed. 
I ended up going into labour at 36+6, expecting to have an induction because my water broke without contractions. Arva knew my wishes about not wanting to be induced and also wanting to labour at home as long as possible. She was kind and gentle providing me with the information needed to advocate for my body and baby. I asked for the induction to be delayed by a few hours, which was granted. Lone be hold, my body knew whay to do, I was able to naturally labour and deliver my baby in a span of two hours. Those two hours were very much a blur, but I know my husband could not stop raving about how thankful he was that Arva was there to help him support me. I am so thankful for her support after the birth too. 
I highly reccomennd Arva and look forward to having her as my doula in the future. 



Arva was amazing at my birth and labor. She has such a soothing, calm voice that helped me get through the contraction pains. I had a successful VBAC and I do not think i could have made it through if it had not been for the support and guidance of Arva. She was really helpful throughout the whole process ( pregnancy, birth, and post-partum) and is just a pleasant person to be around. I loved having her as my doula and trust her completely.

Arva is an amazing Doula and I would highly recommend her for any women looking. Arva was there for the birth of my third child and I wish I would have known her for my other 2.  She is amazing at reading the situation and giving just the right level of support, she made my birthing experience a positive one even though it was my hardest labour out of all 3. Arva's calmness in the delivery room was a much needed energy and I am so thankful she was there. 
We have also had Arva coming to the house the weeks after Emily's birth for postpartum care.  She fits in perfectly with our family and has taken away a huge amount of the stress that comes with having a newborn. My older kids absolutely adore her and she adapts to where ever she is needed. 
If you hire Arva to be part of your birthing experience it will be a choice you won't regret! 



I'm greatful to have had a doula during my labour process. It helped so much. The one thing that really helped me what during contractions, when she would press my hips inwards to take the pressure off. 




Arva is that Doula-God-Mother that every momma to be needs. Honestly I'm was in peculiar position in every way to be concerning my pregnancy and she filled every role that I needed. The support system I received from her was truly something. I appreciated it greatly. I won't be forgetting it ever she is a part of my first pregnancy journey ever and I won't ever forget it. Thank you Arva for what you do, I'm lucky I got you.

Arva is a professional, personable, all around wonderful person. She listens to your wants and needs. Arva was my doula with my first child, if I ever have another one she will be one of my first calls as her presence in the birthing room is greatly appreciated.
