Our Services

Laboring couple

The California Birth Center is an all-inclusive facility offering our clients holistic and maternity services including prenatal care, labor support, postpartum follow-up care through 6 weeks and well-woman gynecological care. We offer a full range of services for expecting and new parents including:

› Preconception Services
› Prenatal Care
› Labor & Birth

Preconception Services

Preconception visits are available for women planning on or trying to conceive. At this visit we will discuss nutrition, vitamin supplementation, lifestyle, exercise, health history and optimizing your chances for a healthy pregnancy. We can collect preconception lab work such as baseline health labs, Vitamin D, and Pap screening (if desired). We can also give you tools for coping with early pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness.

The cost of this visit is $200 plus lab fees, and if you conceive within one year of the appointment and begin care with us, we’ll apply $100 of this to your midwifery fee. It’s all part of our commitment to healthy mamas and healthy babies!

 

Prenatal Care

We believe in supporting women physically, emotionally and spiritually throughout their pregnancy. Prenatal care is a time for you to learn how to take care of your changing body, to develop trust in your inner wisdom and to prepare for birth and beyond. We know that this kind of true growth takes time, so we allow for more time for questions, concerns and celebrations during your visits as well as all the clinical care needed to ensure you and your baby stay healthy and well throughout pregnancy.

Mother being monitored by midwife during laborWe believe that wherever you give birth becomes sacred space.

Postpartum Care

Midwife care after birthMost families stay about 3-4 hours after the birth, then the next step of the journey of parenthood begins. For most families, navigating the first weeks is an unprecedented mix of wonder, exhaustion, tears and triumph. But like all rites of passage, it is essential that new families have the love and support from caregivers who understand the process and the needs of new families. We are here to support, encourage, and guide you through this sacred time, not just as your midwives, but as mothers who have also navigated this journey. By the time your baby is six weeks old, we are connected more deeply for having experienced birth together and a kinship is created. Welcome to the Family!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you planning a natural childbirth? You’ll find answers to common questions below. If you don’t see your answer here, please send us a message or give us a call at (916) 223-7731. We’re happy to help!

Why should I choose the California Birth Center?

At The California Birth Center, we know that you’ll always remember the birth of your baby — it is an intrinsic and integral part of your life, your partner’s life, and your baby’s life. You will cherish the first time you felt their tiny hand grasp your finger and the first time you nuzzled your baby’s velvety head and looked into their eyes. The birth of your child is an experience unlike any other and shouldn’t be rushed or unnecessarily clinical.

We know that midwifery care helps women have healthy pregnancies and natural births best, We also know that in situations where transfer of care is needed women have the extra care that they need afterward to process and heal from unexpected birth experience. We care for women and their newborns for the first six weeks after birth. Welcome to the Family!

What makes The California Birth Center different from a hospital birth?

Unlike at a hospital birth, you will have a close and familiar relationship with your midwives, who will accompany you through your birth experience. All our routine midwifery care, including privacy, quiet, low-lighting, delayed cord clamping and minimal interventions for mother and baby, are geared to promote the natural process of birth and bonding. Your birth plan is our birth plan.

One of the biggest differences between a hospital birth and a birth at The California Birth Center, is that the mother-baby bonding is not only welcomed but also encouraged by us. We encourage continuous uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby…and partner too! Your baby will never leave your side as you spend time getting to know one another and initiating breastfeeding. When it is time, we perform the complete newborn examination alongside you and family.

I’ve been seeing another care provider, can I still transfer my care to the California Birth Center?

Absolutely. We will help you make a seamless transition. All you need to do to transfer your care is make an appointment with us and then get a copy of your medical records from your previous provider by completing a Medical Records Release form available in our office. It’s that simple.

I heard that The California Birth Center books up quickly. Will there be room for me?

We are blessed to have many repeat clients that call us as soon as their pregnancy test is positive! Our schedule books up quickly and often several months in advance. However, it is important to us to leave room in our schedule for new clients but starting your care with us sooner rather than later is always best.

Is giving birth in a birth center safe?

Out-of-hospital birth is as safe as, or safer than, a hospital birth for the majority of women. The Midwife Alliance of North America has several studies, articles, and printouts that you can share with your family and friends.

We only take care of low risk, normal families. According to California State Midwifery Law, we may only attend singleton births (no twins), baby must be head down at the time of birth (no planned breech births), births must occur between 37 – 42 weeks, and if there is a condition likely to negatively affect childbirth (like preeclampsia or placenta previa), we will refer or transfer to a physician.

We start with ensuring that clients are healthy when they begin care with us. Then throughout pregnancy we provide comprehensive prenatal visits, prenatal screening, plus you take good care of yourself to ensure that when you start labor at The California Birth Center you and your baby are healthy and well.

Finally, our midwives provide continuous support and care during labor and birth and make sure everyone stays healthy and well throughout labor at The California Birth Center. Our midwives are well trained and skilled in identifying and attending to certain birth complications such as postpartum hemorrhage and neonatal resuscitation, but our midwives will transfer families to the hospital during labor or in the immediate postpartum if the circumstances become outside of our policies or scope of practice. Recognizing what is normal, knowing how to keep it normal and identifying when the hospital is a better place to be is what makes midwifery care at the California Birth Center safe.

Am I a good candidate for giving birth at The California Birth Center?

The majority of women are good candidates for birth center birth. We offer a complimentary tour and meeting with our Clinical Director to ensure that this would be a good option for you and your baby.

When do I take the baby to the pediatrician?

Our care includes well-baby care for the first six weeks after birth. We perform a complete newborn exam before you leave the birth center which includes weighing, measuring, listening to baby’s heart and lungs as well as sweet keepsake footprints! We offer erythromycin and Vitamin K (oral botanical and pharmaceutical grade injectable). We perform the Critical Congenital Cardiac Defect screening and the California Newborn Screen at the home visit. We have an audiologist from the Children’s Choice for Hearing and Talking do Newborn Hearing Screening clinics at the California Birth Center. With the exception of the Hepatitis B vaccine (which we cannot offer), we can provide all routine care for babies until they see their pediatrician for their two-month well baby visit.

Do you offer VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)?

We welcome women seeking VBAC’s! We offer midwifery care and birth services for healthy women who have had no more than one previous cesarean birth, and with an ultrasound documenting the placenta is not low-lying anterior. We require a copy of the operative report from the hospital where your cesarean birth occurred. There must also be at least 18 months spacing from cesarean birth to the next baby’s due date. For VBAC support and education go to ICAN-online.org and VBACfacts.com.

Do you offer water births?

Absolutely! Many of our clients use water for labor and birth. We have private showers and deep soaking tubs in each of the birth suites. The buoyancy and warmth of the water help with relaxation, pain relief and ease of changing positions during labor. Many women laboring in the tub go on to give birth there. Mothers and babies love it. It’s rare that we can’t get the tub filled in time, but if you have had babies before and you are “coming in hot” we can start filling the tub when you are on your way in!

Do you take clients near their estimated due date?

Yes, We get calls quite frequently from families that feel they cannot continue with their current plans and are seeking last-minute changes. This is often a result of childbirth education, moving to our area or because they are at the end of their pregnancy and being told they will need unnecessary interventions.

We evaluate prospective clients on a case-by-case basis. As long as you’ve been receiving prenatal care and are healthy and low-risk (meaning no high blood pressure, gestational diabetes or other pregnancy complications or health risks) and we can get all of your medical records, we are able to accept you into our care late in pregnancy.

What about lab work and ultrasounds?

We can order any lab work or ultrasound that you may need! Blood can be drawn by one of the California Birth Center midwives during your visit or ordered to be collected at a Quest lab near you. For women wanting ultrasound, we can order them at a variety of local ultrasound facilities.

If I’m planning a birth at the California Birth Center, do I need to see a physician also?

We provide complete prenatal care as long as you and your baby remain healthy and low risk. If a situation outside our scope of practice arises, we will refer you to a physician covered by your insurance plan. Very few of our clients have required complete transfer of care due to risk factors.

Some of our clients who have HMO or EPO insurance plans will get concurrent care with in-network physicians to cover the cost of ultrasounds and lab work since those are not included in our fee. If you would prefer to have us order your labs and ultrasounds, we have affordable negotiated rates for lab work and some local ultrasound facilities have cash pay rates.

Can my older children attend prenatal visits and be at the birth?

We absolutely LOVE having older siblings take part in your prenatal visits. Our “little helpers” can assist throughout the appointment by measuring mama’s belly, and listening to baby’s heartbeat. Family-centered births are welcomed based on the mother’s and children’s comfort level. We respectfully request that all family members who accompany you to the California Birth Center be healthy and well!

Will I need a doula?

A doula (professional labor support) can be a wonderful extra support, especially during a longer labor, if its your first baby, to ensure that you will have extra labor support if you need to transfer to hospital, or for labor support at your home before you come to the birth center.

Do you offer breastfeeding support?

Most of our midwives are skilled in breastfeeding support from years of personal and professional experience. We believe that supporting a healthy breastfeeding relationship is a vital component of our midwifery care. We understand that preparing for breastfeeding before the birth of your child is of great importance when considering that your breastfeeding relationship will last several months to several years. We include a breastfeeding class for families to take together prenatally, educational materials to take home and a resource list of breastfeeding specialists in the area.

Will insurance cover midwifery care at The California Birth Center?

Kaiser Permanente is now reimbursing care at California Birth Center! If you’re pregnant and have Kaiser coverage, or you birthed with us in the past year and had Kaiser coverage, we can bill Kaiser for you. So give us a call!

We can also bill PPO insurance. Typically, we are covered at Out-of-Network rate but often our insurance biller is able to obtain In-Network rates for families. We have even had a few families get reimbursed by their HMOs for the care at The California Birth Center!

Health share plans such as Christian Healthcare Ministries, Medi-share and Samaritan Ministries will cover your care here! Families can also use their FSA or HSAs to cover our fee.

Labs can be billed directly to your insurance, but you may owe a copay to Quest for your labs. For those who have HMO or health share plans we have negotiated cash pay rates for labs that are affordable.

Ultrasounds can be billed directly to your insurance, but you may owe a copay to your insurance company for your ultrasound. For those who have HMO or health share plans, some of the ultrasound facilities have cash pay rates that are affordable.

Of course, you can also pay cash for California Birth Center services.

What happens if birth doesn’t go as planned?

Although out-of-hospital birth is statistically safer, it does not guarantee a complication-free birth. We are highly skilled and trained to detect and manage many birth complications. We have all the necessary equipment and supplies including medications to control postpartum hemorrhage and equipment to resuscitate newborns, which preserves our capability to safely attend birth center births. We’ve discreetly tucked away necessary equipment such as oxygen, IV therapy, and medications. Deviations from normal that should not be managed out of the hospital often have early warning signs which permit ample time to transport to the hospital. In this uncommon instance that a transport does become necessary, we are a less than 10-minute drive to local hospitals. We call ahead and send records to ensure a smooth and safe transition into the hospital when needed.

Tell me about the California Birth Center Family…

We are committed to creating a community for women to feel confident and connected to families that share your birth and parenting philosophy. To support our CBC families, we have a social media network to give our clients a friendly environment to discuss pregnancy, birth, and parenting related questions. Please like our fan page on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and for past and current clients only, you may join our private Facebook interactive group. Once you are a part of the California Birth Center Family, you are welcome to join our Postpartum Support Group, park dates, and natural living events. We hope to offer more ways to connect in the coming year!

I have so many wonderful things to say about this place, I don’t even know where to begin! The entire staff is amazing. They made me feel comfortable and welcome from the second I walked through the door (and even offered me snacks). The midwives were so knowledgeable and attentive, and I had the best birth experience I could have asked for. I’m so sad that my time with them is ending, but I hope to be back eventually for baby #2!

So grateful we found CBC! The first time we visited I knew this was the place I wanted to give birth. The staff is so welcoming and caring. They made me feel safe and comfortable during each appointment. When it came to the birth of our child, I can't imagine a better place to have our baby boy. I felt supported and encourged every step of the way. Thank you so much CBC for such a wonderful experience! We definitely will be coming back for our 2nd baby. 🙂

Magical. Just magical. My labor and birth were everything I ever could have wanted. We had our son, our second child at California birth center and my husband was hesitant to have baby out of the hospital but once we met with the staff and toured the facilities we knew this was where we wanted to have baby boy. I can't say enough about how amazing our experience was from the prenatal to postpartum CBC goes above and beyond to make the journey of giving birth everything you want it to be. Worth every penny. A thousand times over!!!

The best birth experience ever!!!I absolutely recommend The California Birth Center for women who want unmedicated births! I had my first baby at the center and it was a wonderful, positive experience. All my prenatal appointments were mellow, quick, and I always left feeling assurance in my decision to birth there. My midwife, Marlene, would give me information, and allowed me to make educated decisions for myself as I progressed in my pregnancy.At 42 weeks, my midwife helped me to get labor going, as I did not want to go to the hopsital, and I had an unmedicated birth. I gave birth to a big, healthy 9lb 8oz baby girl in just under 5 hours of total labor and delivery.The after care was phenomenal! The midwife assistants were so kind, and gentle, always helping me walk, offering to make me food, and checked in with me just often enough that I felt secure, but not too often as to interrupt my sleep.I was considering a home birth, but this center helped me feel secure and safe while not wanting drug intervention. If you are seeking a home birth experience, but are nervous about not having professionals in case something went wrong, the California Birth Center is the perfect middle.Thank you, CBC for helping me bring my baby girl into this world!

The California Birth Center and everyone I’ve met there has forever changed my view on pregnancy, delivery, and now even my parenting, for the better. The decisions I was educated and empowered to make as a pregnant woman have carried into how I now care for my baby, and I couldn’t give enough stars for an experience that has shaped me as a parent that I will carry for a lifetime! The midwives and staff truly have an incredible calling to do this work, and it shows. The prenatal and postpartum care are above and beyond what you would experience at any other medical setting, and my labor and delivery could not have gone more perfectly thanks to the amazing team here. I was always so excited for my appointments and was sad when my time with the center was up! My baby boy was welcomed with so much love. The California Birth Center is such a special place, and I am so grateful that my path led me to them.

Words cannot describe how glad I am to have chosen California Birthing Center as a place to give birth to my son. Before I even got pregnant, I knew wanted to give a natural birth and if possible a water birth. Once I got pregnant I came a cross this amazing birthing center. First my sister in Law gave birth here and couple more women I know off and they raved about their experience. I decided to go with California birthing center because it gave me the flexibility to be in an environment that supported and uplifted women’s body and how capable we are of giving birth naturally. They were extremely focused on me and my needs during pregnancy, with lots of tips and information and Never pushed anything on me that I didn’t want. When it came to labor it’s self; I let my midwife Marlene know I am showing signs of labor and once the time came I let her know I am ready to come in the center. She met me there and prepared my bath, checked me and I got in. Hours flew by as a labored in peace, quiet, and harmony! As the midwifes would come and check on me making sure me and the baby were doing great! As the time came to push I couldn’t push my baby in the tub I was then redirected to the bed and helped change potions to get him out safely. After trying 3 different potions with my midwifes help I was able to push him out and had a perfectly healthy boy. I got to go home couple hours after birth and I was beyond happy to be home and get my rest at home. The next day the midwife came to my house for a check up and after a week I came back to the center for a wellness check those lasted up to 6 weeks. My baby is now 3 months old and he’s doing amazing and so am I. If you’re looking for a natural birthing experience I recommend this amazing center. All the staff is sweet, caring and friendly I loved going to all my visits and all my needs were met. They made birth not scary but instead an empowering experience that I would love for every women to experience.

I had an incredible prenatal, birth and post partum care experience at California Birth Center! They really cared about me, my baby, and our family. I felt supported and empowered with information to make the care choices that were best for me and my baby. My husband felt supported as well!The facilities are incredible but the staff’s care and knowledge is the best part. I also loved the online record keeping and communication system. All my questions, concerns, and inquiries about labor were answered quickly. Thankful to have had our baby there!!!

I had such an incredible experience at the California Birth Center! Every person who is on staff here is an amazing human being. Scheduling with Amanda was always a seamless and fast experience, plus she is SO kind, very responsive, and helpful. My midwives Pauline and Mackenzie were top notch during my prenatal care. They are both knowledgeable, experienced, and genuinely sweet women who are passionate about pregnancy and birth, which shows in the level of care they give to their clients. They both spent time connecting with me during our appointments which gave me a lot of confidence that my birthing experience would be great based off of how awesome my prenatal care was. I was truly blown away with the team when it was time to actually have my baby. Birth is where Pauline, Mackenzie, and my Doula Michelle really shine! All three of these women are the reason my birth experience was so positive, calm, and smooth. Michelle literally tended to my every need which allowed Pauline and Mackenzie to expertly focus on me and the baby during my birth experience. The whole team was like a well oiled machine and they all were so incredibly positive and encouraging. Everyone should receive this level of care when having a baby!!

She met me there and prepared my bath, checked me and I got in. Hours flew by as a labored in peace, quiet, and harmony! As the midwifes would come and check on me making sure me and the baby were doing great! As the time came to push I couldn’t push my baby in the tub I was then redirected to the bed and helped change potions to get him out safely. After trying 3 different potions with my midwifes help I was able to push him out and had a perfectly healthy boy. I got to go home couple hours after birth and I was beyond happy to be home and get my rest at home. The next day the midwife came to my house for a check up and after a week I came back to the center for a wellness check those lasted up to 6 weeks. My baby is now 3 months old and he’s doing amazing and so am I. If you’re looking for a natural birthing experience I recommend this amazing center. All the staff is sweet, caring and friendly I loved going to all my visits and all my needs were met. They made birth not scary but instead an empowering experience that I would love for every women to experience.

I had an incredible prenatal, birth and post partum care experience at California Birth Center! They really cared about me, my baby, and our family. I felt supported and empowered with information to make the care choices that were best for me and my baby. My husband felt supported as well!The facilities are incredible but the staff’s care and knowledge is the best part. I also loved the online record keeping and communication system. All my questions, concerns, and inquiries about labor were answered quickly. Thankful to have had our baby there!!!

I had such an incredible experience at the California Birth Center! Every person who is on staff here is an amazing human being. Scheduling with Amanda was always a seamless and fast experience, plus she is SO kind, very responsive, and helpful. My midwives Pauline and Mackenzie were top notch during my prenatal care. They are both knowledgeable, experienced, and genuinely sweet women who are passionate about pregnancy and birth, which shows in the level of care they give to their clients. They both spent time connecting with me during our appointments which gave me a lot of confidence that my birthing experience would be great based off of how awesome my prenatal care was. I was truly blown away with the team when it was time to actually have my baby. Birth is where Pauline, Mackenzie, and my Doula Michelle really shine! All three of these women are the reason my birth experience was so positive, calm, and smooth. Michelle literally tended to my every need which allowed Pauline and Mackenzie to expertly focus on me and the baby during my birth experience. The whole team was like a well oiled machine and they all were so incredibly positive and encouraging. Everyone should receive this level of care when having a baby!!
