Have you ever wished you could…

  • Teach the EBB Childbirth Class and other EBB workshops online or in person? 
  • 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!

If you answered “yes!” to those above questions, We can’t wait to see you apply !

What is the cost of the program?


The application fee is $50, and the initial enrollment fee is $599. Your enrollment fee is good for the first 12 months of your tenure as an EBB Instructor, and includes all the training, curriculum, the right to teach and sell tickets to classes and workshops, specialty training to teach the EBB Childbirth Class, contact hour certificates to offer to professionals who attend your pro workshops, and all the other benefits listed above. 


In the 2023 admission cycle, we are providing 8 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 (4 full scholarships available)
  • You are a disabled birth worker or health care worker (2 full scholarships available)
  • You are a birth worker or health care worker who lives 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.

The scholarship process is highly competitive and this means we cannot offer full scholarships to everyone qualified who applies. To help offset costs for birth workers from these populations, we offer 20% off the enrollment fee to those who fit the scholarship criteria and are accepted into the program but are not awarded a full scholarship. 

Is there an annual renewal fee?

You can renew your Instructor status each year for $299. Any required renewal training will be provided at no cost to you.
