2019 Evidence Based Birth® Conference - Bringing Evidence to Life

September 25 – 27, 2019 | Downtown Hilton | Lexington, Kentucky, USA
Hi, I’m Rebecca Dekker

For six years now, I’ve been leading the team at Evidence Based Birth®, doing everything I can to help turn my frustration with our imperfect health care system into energy, passion, and share-able research evidence! I love bringing birth and healthcare professionals together to brainstorm solutions, build connections, and engage in exciting, cutting-edge education– and that’s why I created this conference for you!  

When you attend the 2019 EBB Conference, you can expect to walk away feeling like you are an integral part of the Evidence Based Birth® community. My hope is that you will be energized by our amazing keynote sessions and hands-on workshops. The education you will receive– as well as the networking you will engage in– will hopefully equip and empower you to not only survive—but to thrive in your career!
