In this episode I interview Evidence Based Birth Instructor Program Director Cat LaPlante about her empowering birth experiences and her life as a birth professional. Cat is a certified doula and childbirth educator, and was also one of the first EBB Instructors. She has a passion for teaching expectant parents and birth professionals about evidence based care – she loves when parents get excited about the labor process! Cat lives with her husband and four boys. 

Learn how Cat’s fourth birth at home was different in many ways to her previous births, and the strategies she used as a result of teaching the new EBB Childbirth Class – including a transformational language shift. Cat also shares fascinating insights into her life as a doula and childbirth educator.
