Hi, my name is Heidi Duncan and I’m an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor!

An Evidence Based Birth® Instructor is a birth professional specially trained in how to help families get evidence based care. I am one of only about 100 Evidence Based Birth® Instructors around the world!

I applied to become an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor because I believe that every birthing person deserves a positive, respectful and safe experience. Sadly this is not a reality for most women, but I’m proud to be joining forces with professionals and parents around the world to ensure that things change for the better!

If you want to be empowered with the latest evidence and to take control over your birth OR if you want to help your clients take control over their births, then keep reading to find out what I can offer you.


Savvy Birth Pro Workshop

I am excited to bring Savvy Birth Pro Workshops to the Middle Tennessee area!

The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (3 contact hours) was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give you the skills you need to help your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care during pregnancy and labor.

What my past attendees think: "The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop enabled me to have a much deeper understanding of evidence-based care. It also gave me tools for communicating with clients and students about what constitutes evidence-based care and how they can advocate for themselves to obtain such care. Heidi was very knowledgeable and made the workshop both informative and fun. I would wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to anyone working with birthing families.” — Tracy Good

Upcoming Savvy Birth Pro Workshops: Saturday, November 3, 2018 - 9:00 am, NOVA Birth Services, 401 Center St, Ste 119, Old Hickory, TN 37138
