DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for a childbirth class in the Greenville-Spartanburg area that gives you the flexibility of online learning, but also the support of in-person connections?

By taking the 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 parents in the GSP area who are going through pregnancy and birth just like you! This class is limited to only six couples.

This EBB Childbirth Class is facilitated by Mary Kury, CBE. Video components are instructed by Rebecca Dekker who is a PhD-prepared nurse and also happens to be the founder of Evidence Based Birth®!

Hybrid In-Person and Online Class

  • We will have our first and last classes in-person, and you will do the rest of your learning online!
  • For the online learning portion, you and your partner will watch class videos on your computer or phone
  • For every video you watch on your own, you'll earn points towards gift certificates to local restaurants and breweries!
  • You'll have access to the Instructor 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 is Monday May 7, 6:30-8:30 PM
  • Extra practice class for deluxe registrants is Saturday, June 16 from 10AM - 12PM
  • Last in-person class is Monday May 11 from 6:30-8:30 PM
  • The in-person sessions meet at Labors of Love Birth Center, LC 850 Floyd Rd Extension, Spartanburg SC 29307.
  • A final "birth story" reunion class is included-- get a chance to debrief after your birth in a safe space (this is really important!)

What is Included in this Childbirth Class?

Both standard and deluxe registration includes the in-person classes, weekly Zoom video chats with your Instructor, access to your lessons online at the Evidence Based Birth® Academy, a PDF library, and a reunion "birth story" class. If you choose the "deluxe" option, you will get 6 months access to the online portion plus a an extra in-person practice session on Saturday, June 16.

One ticket is good for both the pregnant parent and their chosen support person. Your doula is also invited to attend any of our in-person sessions, if you have a doula! We will provide incentives for doing the out-of-class work.

Will I Learn how to have a Natural Birth?

At Evidence Based Birth®, we believe 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 natural birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you need an epidural or Cesarean, we’ll cover how you can be empowered that way, too!
