Are you looking for a childbirth class that gives you the flexibility of learning online, but also the support and encouragement from an instructor? When you take the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you will:

  • Receive mentorship from your own Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Shalin Butterworth.
  • Learn about evidence-based care, comfort measures, and advocacy.

By taking the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you and your partner will learn the evidence for your birth options and you’ll get to meet online with an experienced instructor and other parents who are on their journey through pregnancy and birth just like you! This hybrid class format allows you to access quality evidence-based materials online, when it works with your schedule, with the added benefit of live classes, mentorship, and engaging activities! This class is limited to only 6 couples.

  • By completing activities you’ll earn points towards fun prizes!
  • You’ll have live access to your Instructor during 6 Zoom sessions (video chat). We’ll pick the dates/times for our online meetings during our first in-person session.
  • You will be able to optimize your experience with mentorship from Shalin Butterworth, Certified Doula, Lactation Educator Counselor, and EBB® Instructor.
  • You will gain access to a PDF and video library loaded with the most up to date evidence on topics like Eating and Drinking During Labor, Vitamin K, Due Dates, Pitocin for the Third Stage and so much more.

Will I learn how to have an unmedicated 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 your goal is an unmedicated birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to accomplish your goal. If you choose an epidural or cesarean, we’ll cover how you can feel empowered that way, too!
