For nearly 30 years, the midwives of Alaska Family Health & Birth Center have been part of the Fairbanks community. We provide safe, alternative maternity care to families in interior Alaska, giving more women the option of water birth, birth at home or the birth center.

We believe in the natural, instinctive ability of women to give birth and mother their children, from conception to birth and beyond. And in doing so, we go beyond the traditional role of healthcare provider and gain the privilege of becoming partners to mother, child and the generations of families that surround us here in Alaska.

We welcome the chance to care for you during your pregnancy, birth, and after delivery. See what the midwives of Alaska Family Health & Birth Center are doing for women and children. And then let us know what we can do for you today.
