For Professionals

Evidence Based Birth® workshops and seminars do more than provide education. Our goal is to create a strong community of connected professionals who together share this important mission of helping more families receive respectful, high-quality maternity care.

Class Audit

EBB Childbirth Class

Especially for doulas-in-training and L&D nurses, this is a behind-the-scenes pass to experience what your clients will receive in an up-to-date, modern, research-based birth class. We learn info on the local birth settings, cover the evidence on standard interventions, comfort measures that are proven-effective, and advocacy skills for the pregnant person and their partner. 

 

You get to participate in the two in-person classes, the four Zoom calls, have access to the online content, and - if you like - get a 30 day Trial Pro Membership ​to Evidence Based Birth®, which includes 20+ contact hours.  

Workshops

Savvy Birth Pro

The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give professionals the skills you need to make a genuine difference and help your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence-based care during pregnancy and labor. (3 contact hours)

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define evidence-based care and discuss statistics on the quality of birth settings in our local community

  2. Discuss the major reasons why we have an evidence-practice gap, including the power hierarchy and how it is a barrier to evidence-based, family-centered care

  3. Discuss ways that we can bridge the evidence-practice gap at the system level

  4. Discuss specific strategies we can use to help our clients obtain evidence-based care.

Comfort Measures for L&D Nurses

Evidence Based Birth® designed this workshop specifically for Labor and Delivery nurses who are looking to add to their labor support knowledge and skills. However, local doulas, midwives, and childbirth educators are also encouraged to register! (3 contact hours)

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the evidence on comfort measures

  2. Demonstrate a variety of comfort measures

  3. Discuss how we can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures

Seminar Series

Due Dates & AMA

In this Evidence Based Birth® seminar, packed with facts, you will learn the evidence on 39-week induction and for induction at or past the "due date". We cover the recent ARRIVE study in-depth and we’ll also cover a bit about “advanced maternal age,” and discuss the actual numbers of increase in stillbirth with older age. (1.5 contact hours)

Learning objectives:

  1. Describe the risks of going past due

  2. Review the evidence on the benefits and risks of induction versus waiting for labor to start on its own

  3. Describe the pros and cons of induction vs. expectant management for advanced maternal age

Newborn Procedures

What is the evidence on the safety of Vitamin K? Does delayed cord clamping lead to jaundice? How can we help families who give birth by Cesarean get skin to skin in our local operating rooms? In this interactive seminar, we will take an in-depth look at the research evidence on newborn procedures for term infants during the “golden hour.” (1.5 contact hours)

 

Learning objectives:

  1. Describe evidence on two best practices for newborns in the golden hour: Skin-to-skin and delayed cord clamping

  2. Discuss evidence on procedures that often take precedence over skin-to-skin and bonding, including suction, hatting, bathing, Vitamin K, and eye ointment

Homebirth Transfers

Designed for home birth and hospital providers, this seminar will challenge you and your colleagues to address your fears and concerns about transfers from planned home births into the hospital. What guidelines can hospital staff follow when accepting a home birth transfer? What can home birth providers do to ease the transfer? What are the basic safety statistics of home birth and freestanding birth centers, and what is needed to make home birth even safer? (1.5 contact hours)

 

Learning objectives:

  1. Discuss research evidence on the safety of home birth

  2. Describe how we can increase the safety of home birth transfers to the hospital

  3. List ways to improve the client’s experience during a home-hospital transfer
