“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!”

Frequently Asked Questions 

Pregnant Woman and Partner

“Take this course! I started out nervous but I am now very excited and looking forward to the birth of our baby! My partner and I feel very prepared for our baby’s birth day.”

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

 

A: A lot of that info you find online is inaccurate and opinion based.  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: 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: 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, knows how to make classes exciting. 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: 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!
