Make a bigger impact on evidence based care in your community!
Become an evidence based Birth® Instructor
Have you ever wished you could…
- Help your clients get the kind of birth they want, without increasing friction in the birth room?
- Improve relationships between nurses, doctors, midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, and chiropractors?
- Become an influential change agent in your community, bringing evidence based care into reach for more families?
You’re not alone in feeling like this.
I’ve talked with birth and health care professionals around the world who wish they could do something to make a bigger impact in their communities.
There is so much room for improvement in maternity care… so many families are still receiving care that is not in line with best evidence.
It’s time we get together and do something about it!
Introducing the Evidence Based Birth® Instructor Program
We established the Evidence Based Birth® Instructor program in 2015 to give experienced childbirth educators, doulas, nurses, midwives, and physicians the tools they need to bring positive change to their community.
We have built up a growing network of professionals who have been hand-picked and specially trained in evidence based care by our team. After completion of their training program, Instructors are equipped to teach official Evidence Based Birth® continuing education classes in their communities, as well as teach Savvy Birth workshops for pregnant families.

Hear from one of our Instructors…
“When I first heard that there was going to be a course available through Evidence Based Birth® I was intrigued. I had taken all the courses available online through EBB and was super excited to hear more! As the details came out, I knew I had to be a part of the first group to participate and become an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor! I have been able to integrate EBB into the current classes I teach and help people to understand they have options, what they are, and how to navigate the medical system. I love the discussions that come up… you can see the wheels turning as they take the info in! If you have opportunity to become an Evidence Based Birth® instructor, I would highly recommend it! The entire EBB team has been so supportive and I really love the community Rebecca has created!
What is the cost of the program?
The enrollment fee is $897. This includes all the training, curriculum, the right to teach and sell tickets to classes and workshops, contact hour certificates to offer to professionals who attend your live classes, and all the other benefits listed above. You pay this fee in one lump sum or in three monthly payment installments of $327.
If you choose the VIP option, which includes monthly group coaching calls with Rebecca, the enrollment fee is $1,197 (payment plans are available).
Each cycle we provide 6 full scholarships to professionals who meet the criteria already listed above, plus meet one of the following additional criteria:
- You are a person of color and primarily serve families of color (2 full scholarships available)
- You are a professional who works primarily with a non-profit or charitable organization that serves birthing families (2 full scholarships available)
- You are a professional who works in a low-income country and primarily serves low-income families in that country (2 full scholarships available)
There is a scholarship application fee of $20 which covers our time in reviewing the scholarship applications and ensures that you are committed to being fully engaged as an Instructor.

Is there an annual renewal fee?
You can renew your Instructor status each year for $399. Any required renewal training will be provided at no cost to you. Also, once you become an Instructor, you will be locked into your renewal rate, with no price increases.
Hear from one of our Instructors…
“As a childbirth educator and doula, I know the importance of evidence-based care. However, the majority of families who are birthing in my area do not. Being able to offer Savvy Birth Workshops to my community has been amazing — moms (and dads!) have really had their eyes opened to what “evidence-based care” actually looks like, as well as the multitude of options out there for their birth. I’ve had parents come to me afterwards to let me know how much more at ease they felt knowing that they are not powerless and have the ultimate say in their care.”
