Note on COVID Precautions

It's important to me that everyone can learn while maintaining a level of COVID caution they feel comfortable with. In-Person Classes (1 and 6) will be taught at the Little Lake Wellness Hub, at 231 Little Lake Drive, Ann Arbor, MI. For these classes, if covid numbers are high, there will also be an option for a Zoom class, likely the day before or after the in-person class. If you need to know Class 1 and 6 alternative dates in advance, reach out to Sharon at sharon.empoweringbirth@gmail.com for your cohort's specifics. Other COVID precautions for in-person learning.

  • If Sharon is experiencing symptoms or has been exposed to someone who's tested positive, the week of a scheduled in-person class, we'll need to zoom instead.
  • People attending in-person will need to screen themselves for COVID symptoms and exposure, and wear masks to class.

Inclusion Policy:

Evidence Based Birth® is committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for pregnant persons of any age, religion, race, sexual identity, gender identity, or relationship status.

Also, I offer one scholarship for 50% off tuition each session.  Students can choose the basic or deluxe package to discount, and are eligible by either self identifying as 1. Low income, and/or 2. BIPOC.  As long as there are racial disparities in maternal care, I'll continue to be especially passionate about the latter eligibility, and will work to find ways to increase accessibility to EBB classes for parents of color.  Contact Sharon at sharon.empoweringbirth@gmail.com to check on scholarship availability.

1 Ticket covers both the pregnant person and a partner of their choice.

Basic Package for $295: The entire 6 week Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, 3 months access to the online learning material, and mentorship from Sharon.

Deluxe Package for $335: The entire 6 week Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, 6 months access to the online learning material, mentorship from Sharon, and a hard copy of the workbook sent directly to your home.
