1/3 In-Person Group Classes + 2/3 Group Online Classes = 1 Empowered Birth Team

+ Video Modules Viewed Independently In Between Classes = 1 Super Empowered Birth Team!

Taught by Lisa Collins, M.A., CD(DONA), Orlando's Evidence Based Birth® Instructor

* Benefit from "Flipped Classroom" experience -Accommodates your learning style and busy schedules. Take your learning anywhere by viewing the dynamic video modules brought to you by Rebecca Dekker, PhD, founder of Evidence Based Birth®, divided into manageable weekly pieces, keeping you on track to get the most out of the 6 classes. Plus enjoy a little friendly competition - compete against your partner or as a team, earn points & redeem for prizes at the end!

* 2 In-Person Classes - In the first and last class, get that community feel by meeting in a small group (6 couples max), where you'll dive deeper into vital information learned at home, interpret it for what it means to you, and put it into practice! Last class includes comfort measures rehearsal with bonus of bringing along one additional family member, friend or doula! All enjoyed in a chill environment--don't worry, there won't be any "cringe-worthy" or graphic content!

* 4 Zoom Weekly Online Classes with your local instructor - Enjoy even more flexibility and convenience! Group consensus chooses the weekday evenings that will work best. Both you & your partner will have the ability to attend the group meetings virtually, from anywhere, on any laptop or mobile device.

* Gain Personal Mentorship - Lisa Collins, a premier, professional and certified doula with a flare for fun, looks forward to being your mentor and guide every step of the way! Benefit from the knowledge she brings from routinely working in a variety of your area's maternity facilities. It's like getting doula care at a fraction of the cost. Get answers to the questions that matter to YOU!

What You Will Learn in an Unbiased, No Judgment and Agenda-Free Environment:

  • The stages of labor - There's so much more than the final pushing stage seen in movies!

  • Differences between "routine care" and evidence based care

  • What evidence based care really means and strategies to increase your odds of getting it

  • Loads of comfort measures to help keep you comfortable in labor

  • Risks & benefits of common interventions, procedures and protocols (ie inductions for "big baby", sweeping the membranes, epidurals, eye ointment and lots more)

  • Develop and communicate preferences for birth, newborn's care, planned or unplanned Cesarean

  • The real deal about your physical and emotional postpartum care

  • Respectful communication strategies for interacting with care providers

  • Advocacy skills when necessary

  • Bonus material on breastfeeding and newborn care

Your Community Needs You!
BONUS! The happy consequence of you, the educated consumer, asking for and getting what you need at the health care level, will be the creation of vital change in your community's maternity culture, that quite frankly no other group could ever achieve alone (we've been trying!). Ultimately you will be improving birth for EVERYONE who comes after you, strengthening your entire community. Your help will result in empowered new families being born everyday!
