New Beginnings Birthing Center

New Beginnings Birthing Center let's you chose how to have your baby.

Our clinic providers and hospital staff believe in a model of care that supports pregnancy and childbirth as an important, vulnerable yet normal part of women’s lives.

Our Obstetricians/Gynecologists and nurse-midwives work together to let you choose the care you want and need. The two philosophies combined provide superior care and options for you.

Our staff is dedicated to a model of minimum intervention coupled with the expertise of highly qualified, board certified Obstetricians/ Gynecologists who are available 24/7. We offer a modern medical facility with current technology and a dedicated staff.

Staying in Southeast Alaska to have your baby is a bonus. Consider how much easier it is when you’re close to your doctor and birthing center. It’s easier for your family too.

We deliver more than twenty babies a month—busy enough to stay focused, but not too busy to provide the personal attention you need.

About Our Facility

We have four special birthing rooms which provide Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) care in the same room. Our healthy babies stay in the same room with their parents. We encourage the primary support member to stay in the room with mother and baby, and provide chairs to aid in their comfort. We offer one room with a Jacuzzi tub, on a first-come first-served basis.

Watch For Special Classes

We periodically offer childbirth and breast feeding classes free to the public. Watch this page for details on dates, locations and times.
