A message from Amy Blain,

your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:

Too many new parents have shared with me that even though they had learned a lot about labor & birth in a childbirth class, they still felt disappointed or frustrated by their birth experience. Some say as soon as they entered the hospital, everything they learned 'flew out the window'.

 

This feedback has helped me recognize a problem:  Knowing a lot about birth doesn't necessarily prepare you to navigate our imperfect healthcare system or communicate your values and priorities when birth is actually happening.

 

The Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class offers a solution to this problem! It provides an education about what is evidence based care during labor & birth, strategies for staying comfortable, AND advocacy skills – a wholistic approach assuring couples are confident and truly prepared for their upcoming birth experience.

What clients are saying...

Do you feel like the EBB Childbirth Class prepared you for birth ? Please explain .

 

Yes, 100%. We had planned on having a water birth at our midwife's private beautiful facility, and I developed cholestasis in the 35th week  of pregnancy. We had to obviously then alter our birth plan. We reviewed all of the material on birth plans, induction, acupressure, cervix ripening, massage, etc to prepare us for going to the hospital and coming up with a new plan. 

What was your favorite part about this class?

 

Where to start…the information we learned about the tools that are available to us when giving birth at the hospital, the acupressure and laboring techniques to help ripen the cervix and [how to] help manage contraction pain. It is all very helpful. Also, our instructor, Amy was amazing!

FAQs

Can't I just educate myself using search engines and videos?

Unfortunately, it is hard to know if the information you find on the internet is current or complete or even accurate. One benefit of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is that they are continually  curating and incorporating all of the best, evidence-based information for you. The learning modules are easily updated guaranteeing that the information offered is never out of date.

Shouldn’t I just let the doctors and nurses tell me what to do?

Routine practices in some hospitals can be 15 to 20 years behind the latest research, and there sometimes is a lot of pressure to conform to traditions that might not be in a birthing person's best interest. We will teach you and your partner how to ask the right questions and be your own advocate—a skill you can use for the rest of your life!

My friends told me that taking a childbirth class is a waste of time.

Unfortunately there are poor-quality classes out there that are boring or seem out of date and these can give childbirth education a bad reputation. The Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Classes have been designed intentionally to make the classes engaging & relevant for this generation of new parents. The end result is a class that is motivating and FUN to participate in. You will learn more than you could ever imagine!

What will I actually learn in this class that could be of use to me?

Our students are most excited to learn about the entire toolkit of comfort measures for labor. We cover pain management techniques like massage, water immersion, upright birthing positions, acupressure, music therapy, and deep breathing, just to name a few. When labor starts, you and your partner will be ready!
