We would love to be a part of your birth team!
Our prenatal care usually starts around 10 weeks. Our first visit includes confirmation of pregnancy, a review of your history, a complete physical exam, and time to answer any questions you may have. We can modify your prenatal care to work with your situation. Our prenatal visits are done at the West Wing in a home-like setting.
We offer safe, comfortable birth options. Births usually take place at the family birthing center at South Peninsula Hospital. We offer three large, private, labor and delivery suites with a separate tub room. We help women with natural (non medicated) births as well as offering epidurals, pain medication and we enjoy helping women with vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) trial. We have really excellent outcomes for VBAC. We always have an OBGYN available if a high risk situation develops. Safety is always our primary goal! If a cesarean section is necessary, we stay with you throughout that experience. We have very low Cesarean section rates.
We have a beautiful, large tub available for labor and low risk births. After delivery we encourage you to keep your baby with you in the room and the Nurse Midwives and the OB nurses help to provide support and education as much or as little as you need. We offer an optional home visit after delivery if desired.
We offer home birth experience for low risk women. Our goal is to provide wisdom and guidance so that your experience can be one of respect, self confidence, support and safety. We encourage women to be partners in their own care.
The West Wing Clinic offers care for babies up to 6 weeks, then baby care can be continued with Julie McCarron up to 3 years old.
We happily offer delivery options for women who come from other places in Alaska. Call us for details.
