Description

Get empowered with a CHILDBIRTH CLASS you and your partner will LOVE!

Watch a replay of the webinar all about this amazing childbirth class and find out why it's so popular!

Are you looking for a childbirth class that gives you the convenience of learning online, plenty of flexibility in when and where you meet, but also the support and encouragement from an instructor?

When you take the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you will:

  • Get mentored by your own Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, Laura Shive, founder of Susquehanna Doulas!

  • Learn about evidence-based care, comfort measures, and advocacy!

  • Get prepared, get answers, and get empowered!

By taking the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you and your partner will learn the evidence for your birth options while you meet in-person and online with your experienced instructor and other parents from the Baltimore/Washington area who are on the journey through pregnancy and birth just like you!

This hybrid class format allows you to access quality evidence-based materials online so that it works with your schedule, with the added benefit of local in-person mentorship and engaging activities! This class is limited to only 6 couples (birthing person plus the support person they anticipate being present at the birth; single birthing persons are absolutely welcomed, with or without a support person!). Your birth doula is invited to join you and your partner at the comfort measures class on October 5.

In-Person and Online Class

  • We will have our first and our final classes in-person at Om Baby, and you will do the rest of your learning online!

  • For the weekly online independent learning activities, you and your partner will watch videos on your computer, phone or device at your convenience, with an easy to read workbook to guide you.

  • For every video you watch on your own, you’ll earn points towards fun prizes!

  • You’ll have access to your Instructor and benefit from the class discussion during weekly Zoom sessions (video chat). We’ll pick the weekly date/time for our online meetings based on the group’s availability.

  • First in-person class will be Sunday, November 10 from 12:30 - 2:30pm

  • Final in-person class (our Comfort Measures session!) will be Sunday, December 15 from 12:30 - 2:30pm

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 vaginal birth without pain medication, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you choose an epidural or need a Cesarean, we’ll cover how you can be empowered that way, too!
