Here we grow

The Community Space at Alaska Birth Services is expanding!

I am so excited to get settled in our new, much larger space.

Who uses the space?

I operate and sublet the space independently, and love having a dedicated place to teach my Spinning Babies Parent classes and Evidence Based Birth workshops for expecting parents and birth professionals. 

My doula partnership, JMS Births, utilizes the space for our clientele.  Our non-profit organization, the Alaska Birth Collective, also uses the space for board meetings and events. 

Multiple other care givers and community groups rent the space for various purposes, including events, groups, and gatherings.  The space has Wifi, a large TV, a comfortable living area, large open classroom area, kitchenette and private bath.  

Why move?

I originally looked for a space on the ground floor, but couldn’t find one in the area I liked.  When a ground floor, much larger space in our current building opened up, I jumped at the chance!  This new classroom area will give us more room to move and spread out during classes and events, and the area is better suited to be more multipurpose.


We’ll be moving downstairs this week!



The new space is available hourly, daily, weekly, or ongoing for use by multiple care providers, teachers, and groups.  Keyless entry, ample parking, and easy access with front and back entry doors.

Currently and collectively, together we offer and host:

  • Support Groups
  • Midwifery Care
  • Doula Care
  • Therapies
  • Fitness
  • Classes for children and adults (Music Together with Timbre Music Studio begins 3/18!)
  • Events
  • Meetings
  • Gatherings
  • Parties
  • Coworking

Community Space

If you offer a class or need a space for appointments, meetings, gatherings, teaching, workshops, or events in the UMED area of Anchorage, please get in touch! I’d love to give you a personal tour.

I think you’ll find the community space at Alaska Birth Services warm, welcoming, and comfortable for your clients, students, and friends.

Keep an eye on my Facebook or Instagram for photos of the new space very soon! 

XO, Shanna
