Alaska Native Birthworkers Community Services
FREE DIRECT SERVICE TO NATIVE BIRTHING FAMILIES
We offer culturally matched and community-based informational, emotional, and physical support during preconception, pregnancy, loss, labor and birth, postpartum, and parenting for Indigenous families. In all of these phases of life, we center ceremony and uphold individuals' sovereignty and autonomy.
The Alaska Native Birthworkers Community serves self-identified Alaska Native and Indigenous families birthing in Alaska.
If you are looking for an Indigenous labor and birth helper or additional support during any phase of your life, please reach out.
The Alaska Native Birthworkers Community also collects and redistributes food and maternity, newborn, and breastfeeding support items. Please click the button for more information on donating supplies or receiving aid.
FREE TRAINING FOR INDIGENOUS BIRTHWORKERS
We invite current and aspiring Indigenous birthworkers to join us for training and continuing education at no cost to the individual, in addition to providing space for networking and mentorship.
ANBC also hosts community dialogues, as well as bringing training opportunites taught by Indigenous experts to our communities.
The Alaska Native Birthworkers Community hosts a monthly virtual gathering space on zoom for Indigenous birthworkers to learn from and with each other. These alternate lunch hours and evenings to accommodate more schedules.
Dates for ANBC Indigenous Birthworker Networking Circles:
April 6, 12-1pm
