About this event
Are you looking forward to having a baby, but worried about all of the unknowns… like how do you know if your wishes will be respected? What should be on your birth plan? Will your birth plan be followed? Can you avoid a traumatic birth experience, especially if you had one before?
The Savvy Birth Workshop for parents was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give you and your partner the confidence and know-how you need to have a more positive, empowering experience in the birthing room.
At the Savvy Birth Workshop, you’ll learn ways to communicate effectively with your doctor, midwife, and nurse. You will discover strategies for asking questions without seeming disrespectful and you’ll get the inside scoop on how to stack the odds in your favor of having a positive birth.
Unlike other childbirth classes, we will help you avoid the typical assembly-line care with six virtual “tickets!” These “tickets” are your secret advantage to coping with the unknowns of birth! At the workshop you’ll find out how you can use these tickets in the hospital or wherever you intend to give birth!
We are excited to offer the Savvy Birth Parents Workshop online! We believe that the knowledge you will gain from the Savvy Birth Parents Workshop will leave you and your partner inspired, hopeful, and excited about the upcoming birth of your baby… ready to approach the big day with a savvy swing in your step!
