Description

Get empowered with a childbirth class you and your partner will love!

Are you looking for a childbirth class in Indy with the flexibility of online learning and the support of in-person connections? Hybrid classes are once per week for 6 weeks. A new series is offered every other month.

With Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you and your partner will not only learn the evidence for your birth options in an online class, but you’ll also get to meet in-person with an experienced instructor and other expecting parents in the Indy area. This class is limited to only 6 couples.

The Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is taught by Bobbi Jo Bush. She is a Registered OB Nurse, Certified Breastfeeding Counselor, Doula, Certified Childbirth Educator, and Evidence Based Birth® Instructor and Mentor

*Birth professionals are welcome to audit-see pricing below.

What is Included in this Childbirth Class?

Both standard and deluxe registration include 2 in-person classes, 4 weekly Zoom sessions, a birth rehearsal (bring your doula!), access to your lessons online at the Evidence Based Birth® Academy, a PDF library, and a “birth story” class reunion. The “deluxe” option, gives you 6 months of access to the online portion and a 45-minute private zoom call with Bobbi Jo to discuss your birth plan.

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.

You will have all the tools you need to create your best labor and birth experience. If you want a natural birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you desire an epidural or have a Cesarean birth, we’ll cover how you can be empowered through those, too!
