Juneau Family Birth Center

Birth Stories

What our families are saying:

"The midwives' knowledgable, holistic approach was amazing."
"I wish that all health care was like the care we received through the birth center. Appointments were often over an hour, as the midwife answered all my questions and checked in about both physical and emotional health. As a rural resident, the birth center worked to make tele-appointments easy, working around our schedules and even lending medical equipment for us to take home."

- Megan M.
"The team felt like family, the environment safe, comfortable, and tailored to meet individual needs throughout the birth process."
"I had an outstanding pregnancy and labor experience at the Juneau Birth Center. One of their best standard services is the at-home visiting they provide after birth. It was extremely helpful having a professional come into our home and visit us a few times after the birth - especially during COVID! Plus they have an extensive library with books and videos that my partner and I took advantage of before and after the birth. I cannot recommend this place enough."

- April R.
"Caring, compassionate care."
"Both of our children were born with midwives at the Juneau Birth Center in attendance."

-Bridget L.
"The birth center launched us into parenthood in the best way possible."
"I couldn't have asked for a better birth experience: the calm atmosphere and supportive coaching was incredible. I felt strong and empowered. And then, to continue to receive care on day one, three and five of postpartum meant that we had the breastfeeding and new-parent support we needed."

-Megan M.
"Our family is extremely grateful for the holistic and supportive care."
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about the birth center! We found out our little one was breech at 34 weeks. After trying everything we could to get her to turn, we accepted that she was happy exactly where she was, and we began to plan a caesarean. Throughout this entire process and after our daughter's birth, the birth center was extremely supportive. They continued to provide us with prenatal care and did home visits after the birth."
"Above and beyond what I ever could have hoped for!"
"These ladies provide amazing care and the experience that I had there with my husband for the birth of our first child was absolutely incredible. I wish that I could give more than 5 stars because these ladies deserve it, truly!"

- Brittni C.
"Could not have asked for a better experience in Juneau."
"The wonderful women here will quickly feel like family. As a family traveling in from an outlying area, we found them to be incredibly kind and considerate. If the need ever arises for us again, the birth center will be the first place we look to."

-Schance W.
"These ladies are seriously the best! So caring and helpful."
"The rooms are beautiful and clean. I was home with my baby girl just a couple hours after having her. My experience was so great I wouldn't want to give birth anywhere else!"


Birth stories from our families:

Nell Maisie Comas

My labor varied so much from what was considered average or common. Classes taught me to expect 12 hours of early labor, and that I would enter the transition phase followed by a brief break before pushing began. Neither of those were true for me during my 57.5 hour labor
