The women’s population was considered to think about the health issues of the immigrant population in Sardinia. For physiological reasons such as pregnancy, childbirth, child care women access to health services more than men do. The data of women admitted to the Obstetrics clinic of the University of Cagliari from 2000 to 2008 were examined. The data were divided between Western and non-Western population. The performed processing show that non-Western population differs from the Western for several variables both pertaining to vital statistics (age, social background) and obstetric (number of children, age of first pregnancy, reason of hospitalization among which the increased use of Ivg and the lower need for cesarean section come out). Differences emerge naturally by nationality (women from Eastern Europe, Chinese, Gypsies, African women and women from Central and South America were considered separately) connectable to the type of migration path, whether more or less stable.
