El Dorado County Maternity Services
The new Marshall Birth Center opened in 2013 as a state-of-the-art facility
and one of the Sacramento region’s most modern. It boasts spacious,
all-private suites with many amenities to keep you and your family comfortable
and safe. With a focus on breastfeeding and encouraging skin-to-skin bonding
after birth, Marshall Medical Center was officially recognized as Baby
Friendly Hospital ® by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
Features & Amenities
Large birthing suites, where mothers can labor and deliver in the same
room, feature an abundance of natural light. Rooms come equipped with
both a whirlpool tub (to ease contraction pains) and a comfortable sleeper
sofa (for your spouse or support person). Aromatherapy is available to
relieve nausea or headaches. Our dedicated lactation consultants provide
valuable breastfeeding instruction. Parents are also coached the benefits
of skin-to-skin contact with their newborn.
From these comforts, to our excellent OB/GYN and pediatric physicians and
experienced nurses, you can expect nothing but the best for you and your
baby at Marshall.
We have a wide variety of classes, support groups and education classes

Designated Baby Friendly®
Research shows that immediate skin-to-skin contact between mom and baby
relieves pain, reduces stress and stabilizes body temperature for both
mom and child. It also boosts bonding and initiates breastfeeding. While
the newborn stays with the parents, our dedicated lactation consultants
provide valuable breastfeeding instruction. These efforts helped Marshall’s
Birth Center earn the distinction as a “Baby Friendly” hospital,
one of only around 530 worldwide designated by UNICEF and the World Health
