Hear from one of our Parents…
My name is Michelle, and the Evidence Based Birth® online course was gifted to me by my wonderful Doula (an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor)!
I was skeptical about the need for EBB in my pregnancy but I found it to be very powerful and soooo needed leading up to my labor experience.
I received the course at just the right time for my family! I was most impacted by the example of the reply “we do this for baby” or “this is just safer” as adismissive explanation when a mom inquires about anything while in pregnancy, labor or postpartum — I have personally had this occur and then experienced ramifications of taking that as a satisfactory answer.
Being our own advocates is just so important! Thank you for creating this — it has made a great impact on many moms and will continue to do so!
