Our Mission Statement: To empower and inspire families through access to midwifery care, education, a community birth center, and a network of support.
The Juneau Family Health and Birth Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a community of support for families in Juneau and Southeast Alaska. We are committed to providing midwifery care, affordable and accessible health care, parenting education and support, and preventative counseling. We believe that a healthy beginning for children has a positive impact on society.
The Birth Center at Juneau Family Health and Birth Center offers a caring, warm, and home-like environment in which to welcome your child to the world: a place where you can feel supported and respected as well as safe and secure. We focus on family bonding while maintaining safety for the mother and baby, transforming birth into a growing experience for the woman and family. The Birth Center provides the privacy and comfort of a homelike setting with the safety and experience of professional care by certified midwives.
Midwives view birth as a normal, healthy event, and a complex and empowering life experience for women and their families. We honor women's wisdom and knowledge of their bodies, and trust in the rightness of the birth process. We welcome families and friends to actively participate in pregnancy, labor,and birth, making birth a full family event.
