I know first hand how difficult it can be feeling stuck in a broken system as a birth professional. Working in healthcare for over 10 years has magnified the need for better access to evidence based care. Expecting parents should have the evidence and tools to help them navigate the medical model of care while promoting fulfilling and empowered birth. This can better facilitate shared decision making and lead to positive birthing experiences. As an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, I have been specially trained to help families get evidence based care. Let's work together to bring the evidence to life and change birth for the better!
All classes and workshops are in interactive virtual format at this time
Listen to what some of the first Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class students have had to say:
I really appreciated how informative it was. I knew a lot about the biology of birth and babies, but what we learned was just very impressive. It was a really good experience—fairly chill, fairly laid-back, and not nearly as stressful and awkward as I thought it might be. All the information—I never would’ve thought there was that much information out there!”
This class is a total gamechanger for us. I’d heard negative stories…I was scared and very on edge. Then once we started taking the class, and when we learned about interventions that I was apprehensive about… It brought us together in that [my partner] understood birth more, and I understood it more. And as soon as I went into labor, we were on. We were a team.”

Your birth experience is too valuable for you to avoid educating yourself beforehand. Sadly, I’ve spoken with many parents who have major regrets about how they went into birth without preparation—and the health consequences they suffered as a result. Take action, get educated, and find the answers and mentorship you need today!
Are you an L & D nurse who wishes you had more tools in your toolbox to help keep patients comfortable during labor?
By attending Comfort Measures for Labor and Delivery Nurses, you will not only get hands-on practice with comfort measures skills, but you'll also learn how you can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures on your unit!
All nurses who register at the Professional level or higher will earn 3.5 nursing contact hours, and those who register as Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit to take back to your unit and teach to your peers. Come enjoy an afternoon of demonstrations, discussion, and networking with L & D nurses from all over our area!
Designed for home birth and hospital providers, this workshop will challenge you and your colleagues to address your fears and concerns about transfers from planned home births into the hospital. What guidelines can hospital staff follow when accepting a home birth transfer? What can home birth providers do to ease the transfer? What are the basic safety statistics of home birth and freestanding birth centers, and what is needed to make home birth even safer?
Let's discuss research evidence on the safety of home birth, describe how we can increase the safety of home birth transfers to the hospital and list ways to improve the client’s experience during a home-hospital transfer
