Course Descriptions

Savvy Birth Pro

Are you passionate about evidence based care, but regularly witness hospital policies taking precedence over your client's choice? It can be frustrating to watch clients receive care that isn’t based on research and not quite knowing how to help.

The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (3 contact hours) was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give professionals the skills you need to make a genuine difference and help your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care during pregnancy and labor.

The 3-hour Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will succeed in preparing you to help your clients assert their right to evidence based care in a respectful way that builds bridges, not walls. We believe the inspirational knowledge you will gain from the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will have a positive ripple effect that extends to your clients, the professionals you work with and your community!

You’re no longer alone in the quest to help more families receive respectful, high quality maternity care! The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop does more than provide great skills; it creates a strong community of connected professionals who together share this important mission.

- For A Limited Time- this course includes Birth Monopoly's Know Your Rights In Childbirth Curriculum. Learn your clients legal protection in childbirth and what you can do about it.

Evidence On Due Dates and Advanced Maternal Age Seminar (1.5 CE)

Did you know that the rate of labor induction has drastically increased over the last 30 years? In this Evidence Based Birth® seminar, packed with facts, you will learn the evidence on 39-week induction and for induction at or past the "due date". We cover the recent ARRIVE study in depth and we’ll also cover a bit about “advanced maternal age,” and discuss the actual numbers of increase in stillbirth with older age. I highly recommend you purchase the notes for this class at checkout.

Evidence On Newborn Procedures and The Golden Hour Seminar (1.5 CE)

What is the evidence on the safety of Vitamin K? Does delayed cord clamping lead to jaundice? How can we help families who give birth by Cesarean get skin to skin in our local operating rooms? In this interactive seminar, we will take an in-depth look at the research evidence on newborn procedures for term infants during the “golden hour.” We will cover the history and research on interventions that happen during the first hour of life—including which procedures are the “best practices,” and which procedures can be safely delayed or declined! I highly recommend you purchase the notes for this class at checkout.

Normalizing Homebirth Transfers Seminar (1.5 CE)

Designed for home birth and hospital providers, this workshop will challenge you and your colleagues to address your fears and concerns about transfers from planned home births into the hospital. What guidelines can hospital staff follow when accepting a home birth transfer? What can home birth providers do to ease the transfer? What are the basic safety statistics of home birth and freestanding birth centers, and what is needed to make home birth even safer? I highly recommend you purchase the notes for this class at checkout.

Scholarship: A limited number of scholarships are available for those who do more than half of their birth work for: communities of color, non-english speakers, single parents, medicaid recipients, teen parents or active-military families. Please contact me directly to get discount.
