Virtual Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class

With an Experienced Evidence-Based Birth® Instructor

Evidence Based Birth® believes that every person has their own unique path. Instead of focusing on medicated vs. unmedicated birth, we focus on giving you tools and helping you learn the evidence, so that you can be empowered to make your own decisions!

Are you looking for a childbirth class that gives you the flexibility of learning online, but also the support and encouragement from an instructor?

In this class, we focus on comfort, evidence, and advocacy. Many clients wonder if this is a natural birth class? We do have a strong emphasis on non-drug comfort measures, because they have no side effects and can be used by everyone, whether or not you plan to use medications.

At the end of this class, our hope is that you will have the ability to communicate your goals for your birth experience. If you want an unmedicated birth, this class can give you relaxation and pain management tools that can help with that goal. If you decide that an epidural or Cesarean might be part of your birth, we will cover how you can be empowered that way, too.

  • How your Partner can be your Advocate
  • Evidence Based Care & Navigating the Healthcare System
  • Overcoming Fears and Anxieties
  • Comfort Measures & Pain Coping Tools (Pain Relief) for the Stages of Labor, including a Labor Rehearsal!
  • Providers (Models of Care) & Doulas
  • Know your Rights, Inverventions & Communicating with Hospital Staff
  • Postpartum Healing, Newborn Procedures, Baby Care & Breastfeeding
