Midwifery

Midwives are health care professionals specializing in pregnancy and childbirth who develop a trusting relationship with families and offer uniquely nurturing, hands-on care before, during, and after birth. This model of care results in confident, supported labor and birth.

 

With excellent midwifery outcomes and some of the highest rates of out-of-hospital birth in the country, Alaska is a special place to welcome your baby.

Expectant families often have questions regarding midwifery care, specific to our state and to our practice. The answers to the most frequently asked questions can be found here.

At Heirloom, families may choose to birth at home, or at our state-licensed free-standing birth center designed with our dedication to the safe practice of holistic midwifery care in mind.

Our facility has two beautiful birth rooms located on the main floor and a cozy waiting area for family and friends. The birth suites are stocked with both medical supplies and comfort measures required for labor and delivery. Each charming suite features comfortable seating, a rocking chair, various birth balls/stools, a large birth tub, a secluded back deck with a stunning view of Pioneer Peak, a fireplace, and a bed to rest in after welcoming your new baby.
