Elective Rotation: Santa Rosa Women’s Health and Birth Center
Location: Santa Rosa Women's Health and Birth Center
I spent a full 2 weeks of elective away working with the wonderful midwives at the Santa Rosa Birth Center. I was on call 24/7 for births and was able to attend one birth center birth and one hospital birth. I also spent many days in clinic shadowing the CNMs in prentatal care, postpartum care, and excellent one on one lactation support. I have a list over 30 items long I wrote about all the things I learned this elective. I felt like a sponge wanting to soak up the wealth of wisdom these women have and really appreciated the family centered, relationship focused, slower paced care they provide.
