AFH&BC offers a safe alternative to families seeking maternity care in Interior Alaska. We provide the option of out-of-hospital birth to women expecting a normal pregnancy and delivery. The midwifery model of care provides mothers with information and knowledge to help themselves remain healthy and low risk. Midwives work together with each woman and her family to meet individual needs. The services we provide are:

Free Consultation Free pregnancy testing Complete prenatal care Lab work-ups Nutrition guidance Childbirth preparation classes Labor and delivery (home or birth center) Newborn exam and PKU testing Postpartum follow-up Home visits Breastfeeding help GYN services

Our Childbirth Preparation class is held one Saturday each month and each new mother-to-be is encouraged to attend. The fee is $50 and is only refunded if there is a medical reason for an absence (e.g. the baby comes before the class).
