Episode Summary

EDIT
Women of Valor
AIRED:

An experienced midwife who works informally with a local obstetrician to help poor women give natural births in their homes is accused of murder when she delivers a baby who later dies at a hospital. Simultaneously, another poor woman in labor is denied admittance to a private hospital, and her breech baby dies during transport to the county hospital. Quincy learns that both deaths can be attributed at least in part to the state's refusal to legally recognize trained midwives, as well as reforms to the Medi-Cal program which have made it much more difficult for poor women to receive proper medical care during pregnancy. He becomes determined to clear the midwife of any wrongdoing and save the career of the experienced obstetrician.
