Pre-Maternal Home

Healthy moms and pregnancies are the best way to ensure the delivery of the very healthiest and newest members of our Arctic Slope communities. The Pre-Maternal Home supports the traditional Iñupiat values of cooperation and family, kinship and roles.

The Pre-Maternal Home, located at 274 Pisokak Street, is open for women and children referred by Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital. The Pre-Maternal Home serves as a temporary “home away from home” for pregnant women and their children. It is a five-bedroom house with three bathrooms and an office space, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and comfortable living space.
