Sovereignty from first breath
Who We Are
Alaska Native midwives, doulas, breastfeeding counselors and healers organizing to reclaim Indigenous birth practices, support families from preconception through postnatal care, and increase capacity for community centered maternal child health care.
Our vision is that every Alaska Native birthing person feels supported, well cared for, and full of the information they need to make confident choices around reproductive health, birthing, and parenthood. In doing this, we seek to reclaim as well as create new ceremony and heal our ancestors, ourselves and future generations who may have been harmed through the colonization of our bodies, healthcare, and birthing practices.
What We Offer
Labor and delivery support
Collection and redistribution of food, maternity, newborn care and breastfeeding support items
