Recurring Events

The Alaska Native Birthworkers Community hosts a virtual talking circle every other Saturday from 11AM-12PM! If you are looking to build community while pregnant, trying to get pregnant, breastfeeding, parenting, adoption, healing from pregnancy or infant loss, or closely supporting someone in any one of these phases of life, please join us! All events are posted on our Facebook page.

This is a safe space for conversation and community. Indigenous birth workers will be present to answer any questions or if you need guidance in any part of your preconception, prenatal and postpartum wellness. Please share this event on your timeline for relatives to see and join. 

Upcoming Events

The ANBC has provided volunteer community doula services to members of our Native community for the last three years, and our goal in hosting this training is to grow the number and capacity of Indigenous doulas to serve Native Birthing families statewide.

Training Audience:
This Indigenous Doula training is open to Alaska Native and Indigenous peoples who are committed to supporting Native birthing families in their community and can commit to attending the full four-day training. This is a gender-inclusive space. Please understand that these events are intended to address a specific need in Indigenous communities and that this will be an intimate space to specifically strengthen the capacity of Indigenous peoples. We thank you for honoring and supporting this space. If you are not Alaska Native or Indigenous but would like to support the Alaska Native Birthworkers Community, we invite you to reach out to us to learn about alternate ways of supporting our work.

Registration Fee:
ANBC has done extensive fundraising and has received support to offer this training free of personal financial cost to participants. However, we do require that participants "pay it forward" by volunteering to serve at least one Alaska Native / Indigenous family in their community within a year of completing the training, and that they will report this service back to the ANBC.

Do you have an idea for an event you would like to see from ANBC?

Let us know your idea!
