A message from Joyce Dykema, your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:

When I was expecting my third baby, I had been working as a birth doula for five years, and I'd had two empowering birth experiences already, so I anticipated a similar experience for this baby. My husband and I were excited to welcome our last baby at the same hospital where our first two children had been born, and with our midwives, we made our plans and preparations for a similar birth.

However, those plans crumbled when the hospital decided to withdraw support for my birth plan, just weeks before my due date. I knew the evidence supported my plans for staying comfortable during my birth, but my provider's hands were tied. Now, my husband and I needed to speak up and advocate for ourselves, ultimately choosing to transfer our care to a different facility that truly supported us. Our new providers and birth setting supported my birth plan, and I had the empowering and comfortable birth experience I had prepared for!

Now, through the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, I am proud to skillfully mentor you and your partner in evidence based care, comfort measures, and advocacy, so that you can embrace your birth and parenting experiences with courage and confidence.


Listen to what some of the first students of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class have had to say:
“This class is a total gamechanger for us. I’d heard negative stories…I was scared and very on edge. Then once we started taking the class, and when we learned about interventions that I was apprehensive about… It brought us together in that [my partner] understood birth more, and I understood it more. And as soon as I went into labor, we were on. We were a team.”

“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!”
