Webinar on Supporting Natural Birth and Decreasing Cesarean Birth Rates

The birth of a child is a very special time. At NorthBay Healthcare, we do everything possible to make the experience memorable. Close to 1200 babies are born each year at NorthBay Medical Center — that’s more than 60,000 born since 1960. As a Magnet Recognized organization NorthBay allows nursing leadership to inspire excellence in nurses and the entire interdisciplinary team to own their practice through shared governance and outcomes measurement. Through the structure of having a Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) role to help implement evidence based toolkits and bundles CMQCC/CPMS as well as coordinate  quarterly in-situ simulation/education the NorthBay team has been able to Support Natural Birth and Decrease Cesarean Birth with confidence and consistency…even if a mother has had a prior cesarean section. Quality care doesn’t happen by accident culture change takes time and energy but the efforts are so worth it.
