Midwifery and Women’s Health Care at Geneva Woods (MWHC) has provided full-scope midwifery and gynecologic services to women and their families since its inception in 1995. MWHC is excited to announce that our newly remodeled clinic and CABC Accredited birth center, Anchorage Birth Center, are now open!
Philosophy of Care
We believe that pregnancy is a natural state, and that medical intervention is only necessary when that condition changes. Midwives are trained to recognize the wide variations within normal process and to act if indicated, but not routinely.
We are with our clients starting from the time that they are in active labor, whether at the birth center or the hospital. Our midwives believe that it is important to provide advocacy and support for our patients throughout labor.
Clients are encouraged to bring partners, family, friends, or any other support persons to office visits. We take care to involve a woman's support network as we recognize pregnancy and childbirth are shared experiences.
Dr. Owen Bell is our primary consulting physician. He is available to our clients for services and surgical procedures outside the scope of midwifery care.
