Description

Are you looking for a childbirth class that gives you the flexibility of online learning, but also the support of personal connections?

By taking the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you and your partner will not only learn the evidence for your birth options in an online class, but you’ll also get to meet with an experienced instructor and other parents who are going through pregnancy and birth just like you! This class is limited to only 6 couples. (Typical groups are 2-4 couples.)

This Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is taught by Heidi Duncan, CBD(CBI), APBT. Heidi Duncan is a Childbirth Educator and Certified Birth Doula who has been teaching Evidence Based Birth® classes to parents and professionals since 2015!

"In-Person" and Online Class
  • We will have weekly live discussions via Zoom and you will do the rest of your learning independently
  • For the independent learning portion, you and your partner will watch class videos on your computer or phone in the EBB Parents classroom
  • For every assignment & rehearsal you complete on your own, you’ll earn points towards fun prizes!
  • UPGRADE: For an additional fee, make this series private, with no other families in the sessions.
  • EXPRESS: We cover the same content, but condensed it into 4 sessions rather than 6.
  • A final “birth story” reunion session is included – get a chance to debrief after your birth in a safe space (this is really important!)
What is Included in this Childbirth Class?

All registration options include the in-person classes, weekly Zoom video chats with your Instructor, access to your lessons online at the Evidence Based Birth® Academy, a 100+ page workbook (PDF and printed), a PDF library of EBB peer-reviewed articles, and a reunion “birth story” class.

One ticket is good for both the pregnant parent and their chosen support person. We will provide incentives for doing the out-of-class work by earning points along the way to qualify for prizes at the end of the series.

Will I Learn how to have a Natural Birth?

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! 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, you will have all the tools you need to create your ultimate labor and birth experience. If you want a natural birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you need an epidural or Cesarean, we’ll cover how you can be empowered that way, too!
