Welcoming babies and families into the world!
Thanks for your patience as we transition to two separate practices in the locations you have loved all these years.

Lena is in Anchorage, in the sweet green house that will be known as The Cottage.

Kirsten is in Palmer, in the beautiful barn which will be known as Heirloom Wellness and Birth. Kirsten will be working with Dr. Myra Dimitrov who offers full spectrum family care.

With a focus on gentle birth choices, the midwives at Heritage Birth Center will help support and guide you through your pregnancy.

We strongly believe in honoring the innate wisdom a woman has regarding her baby and body. Let us help you find the path to your best birth. Heritage Birth Center has free-standing birth centers in Anchorage and Palmer, staffed by direct-entry and nurse midwives and committed to the best prenatal, birth and postpartum care.

Our Testimonials

"I wanted to write and say thank you for the care I received last year. I only had two visits at your birth center before moving to Arizona; in that short time I was very impressed with the warmth and care of your office. The rest of the pregnancy went wonderfully. I continued to measure large and received an ultrasound at 31 weeks. We were very surprised to be expecting twins. Richard and Tylee were born on October 9th, 2011. They have been such a blessing. We hope to be moving back to Alaska after my husband's schooling is finished, perhaps one of our next babies will be born in a barn. Thank you again."
