Help families in your
evidence based care.
Become an evidence based Birth® Professional
How can you help families in your community get evidence based care?
Here’s the deal: You and I both want evidence based care to be the “norm” for birthing families in our community. But on average, it takes 15 to 20 years for evidence to be put into practice. This situation is totally unacceptable! How can we speed up that gap so that families can get that care right here, right now?
Learn how to be a change agent in your community… and then also get the support you need right here in the Evidence Based Birth® professional membership.
Our members get immediate access to:
- Our flagship 6-week course on “How to help families get evidence based care”
- Courses with up to 23 contact hours courses (20 hours approved for ACNM contact hours, the Midwifery Bridge Certificate, and prescribed AAFP credit; there are 23 nursing contact hours good towards most doula, midwifery, and childbirth educator certifications)
- Live monthly training sessions on hot topics in the field
- A library of printer-friendly PDFs to share with your clients
- A supportive community for asking questions and sharing challenges, struggles, and success stories!

Scholarships for Students – We are glad to offer partial scholarships available for nursing, midwifery, and medical students/residents.
Scholarships for Women of Color – As long as minority mothers and babies are dying at disparately high rates, I am committed to offering partial and full scholarships for birth professionals of color.
We are thrilled to be able to offer “University Access,” which is already being used by midwifery and doula university programs across the U.S. and Canada! University Access is perfect for nursing, midwifery, doula, medical school, gender studies, and family studies faculty who want to incorporate official Evidence Based Birth® content into their courses.
The student dashboard in the EBB Academy contains a library of specially-filmed “video modules” just for university students, ranging on topics from doulas, to home birth research, VBAC, labor induction, Cesarean rates, and more! Each module comes with a quiz and certificate your students can download to prove the completed the assigned work. Students also get access to all of our advanced continuing education courses, like our courses on Group B Strep and Vitamin K.
You can create your own flipped classroom by requiring your students to watch the EBB video modules and then come to class ready to discuss what they’ve learned!
Universities can purchase access in bulk, or they can require their students to purchase access (like an online textbook). University rates are $60 per student per semester, or $100 per student per year. We’d be happy to give you a personal tour to show you what the university dashboard looks like!
We offer group discounts for doula groups, midwifery practices, birth centers, and other organizations who want to purchase a membership in bulk or a practice-wide license. With a group membership, one person from the group is assigned to pay, but each member gets their own unique login and password.
Bulk memberships can be purchased at either a monthly or annual rate. The discount for a group is 20% for groups of 3 or more, and 25% for groups of 10 or more.
Group enrollment is available each year in the spring and fall.
