A message from Katie Terry, your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:
Since beginning my practice as a Certified Labor Doula in 2013, there are things that I have learned, adapted to, and unlearned over the years. Through these changes, one of the things I kept doing was referring to Evidence Based Birth®. Whether this was in my client interactions, during the former childbirth class I taught, DM’s in my inbox, or in conversations with medical providers, it was almost always followed up with a recommendation to read an EBB website link. This is what lead me to become an Instructor and to be able to offer the EBB Childbirth Class. This is the information my community is missing and what all birthers and their partners need to know.
My passion for you, yes you reading this page, is for you to have tools for a positive birth experience. The information within this course will help you become an informed and confident consumer. This will help you know what exactly you’d prefer for your birth and how to research where to obtain those services. It is a current and comprehensive course on evidence based care, comfort measures, and advocacy designed to prepare today’s parents for the journey through pregnancy to that indescribable first moment holding their newborn and into the early weeks at home.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can’t I just educate myself online using search engines and videos?
A: A lot of that info you find online? It’s bad or inaccurate! The benefit of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is that we curate all of the best, evidence-based information and get you and your partner engaged in the learning process.
Q: Shouldn’t I just let the doctors and nurses tell me what to do?
A: Routine practices in some hospitals are still about 15 to 20 years behind the research, and there is a lot of pressure to conform to traditions that might not be in your best interests. We will teach you and your partner how to be your own advocate—a skill you can use for the rest of your life!
Q: My friends told me that taking a childbirth class is a waste of time.
A: There are a lot of poor-quality classes out there that have given childbirth education a bad reputation. The founder of Evidence Based Birth®, Rebecca Dekker, PhD, RN, APRN, knows how to make classes exciting for young adults. The end result is a class that is motivating and SO much fun to participate in. You will learn more than you could ever imagine!
Q: What will I actually learn in this class that could be of use to me?
A: Our students are most excited to learn about the entire toolkit of comfort measures for labor. We cover pain management techniques like massage, water immersion, upright birthing positions, acupressure, music therapy, and deep breathing, just to name a few. When labor starts, you and your partner will be ready!
