Welcome to Midwifery & Women's Health Care

We're the longest standing midwifery practice in Anchorage. 

We are a diverse group of midwives who attend birth in and out of the hospital setting. We also provide well-woman care to clients between the ages of 13 and 65 within the Anchorage area.

Midwifery and Women’s Health Care (MWHC) believes in a collaborative model of care. We are a mixed practice of both Certified Direct-Entry Midwives (CDMs) and Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs). Although we primarily focus on supporting families seeking an out-of-hospital birth experience at Anchorage Birth Center, our CNMs also have privileges at Providence Hospital where they render care to women seeking a planned hospital birth or a VBAC. No matter where you feel most comfortable giving birth, you will receive true midwifery care. If a woman’s risk status increases during pregnancy, we work in close cooperation with physicians to develop and provide the safest care plan.

We seek to empower clients in navigating their wellness by providing complete and accurate information, meanwhile respecting the individuality and uniqueness of each woman and her family’s perspectives. Our goal is to fuse current, evidence- based practice with the traditional art of midwifery.

We provide modern midwifery care and a focus on women’s wellness. We can’t wait to meet you.
