Heidi Duncan, CBD(CBI), Evidence Based Birth® Instructor

When I first started hearing my friends share their birth stories years ago, most of them were "war stories" of how awful everything had been. Few expressed joy over their births and even fewer made any mention of having choices in how things turned out. It was all "get your epidural in the parking lot" and "I had to have xyz..." When someone mentioned the idea of homebirth with midwives, I was curious but clueless! That curiosity started me on a search for answers.

What I discovered was a whole new world of options, along with the sad reality that my peers knew nothing of those options. They were simply getting "whatever the doctor ordered." They didn't know things could be different. Neither did they understand what was happening to them during their labors and births. No one was taking the time to educate them, to explain what was going on and why. This made their "war stories" not only sad but misleading. They didn't truly know the details of their own experience.

This all led me to pursue training as a Childbirth Educator. I wanted to help families walk through pregnancy and birth confidently—knowing what was changing in their body, recognizing the choices available to them for their care, and helping them get clear answers about what actually did happen along the way.

Even after many years, teaching families is still my passion! Through the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, I can skillfully mentor you and your partner in evidence based care, comfort measures, and advocacy, so that you can embrace your birth and parenting experiences with courage and confidence.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can’t I just educate myself online using search engines and videos?

A: A lot of that info you find online? It’s bad or inaccurate! The benefit of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is that we curate all of the best, evidence-based information and get you and your partner engaged in the learning process.

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

A: There are a lot of poor-quality classes out there that have given childbirth education a bad reputation. The founder of Evidence Based Birth®, Rebecca Dekker, PhD, RN, APRN, knows how to make classes exciting for young adults. The end result is a class that is motivating and SO much fun to participate in. You will learn more than you could ever imagine!

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

A: Routine practices in some hospitals are still about 15 to 20 years behind the research, and there is a lot of pressure to conform to traditions that might not be in your best interests. We will teach you and your partner how to be your own advocate—a skill you can use for the rest of your life!

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

A: 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!
