Midwifery

When obstetricians and nurse midwives collaborate, women benefit. Camellia Women’s Health is the first to bring low intervention, high quality birthing options to families delivering at community hospitals in Sacramento County, in the form of collaborative care with nurse midwives. Collaborative care results in

  • High quality maternity services
  • Lower rates of medical interventions like epidurals, Pitocin, and episiotomy
  • Lower cesarean section rates
  • Lower health care costs
  • Higher rates of breastfeeding

Camellia Women’s Health has undergone many positive changes over its 30-plus year history, yet this change may be the most radical: a new model of women’s care for a new era, utilizing one of the oldest professions in the world. A midwife is a both a licensed nurse and is specially trained to assist in childbirth to help facilitate a natural childbirth as much as possible.
