FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions):
WILL I LEARN HOW TO HAVE A NATURAL BIRTH?
At Evidence Based Birth®, we believe that every person has their own unique path. Instead of focusing on medicated vs. unmedicated birth, we focus on giving you tools and helping you learn the evidence, so that you can be empowered to make your own decisions! We do have a strong emphasis on non-drug comfort measures, because they have no side effects and can be used by everyone, whether or not you plan to use medications.
At the end of this class, you will have all the tools you need to create your ultimate labor and birth experience. If you want a natural birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to have a natural birth. If you need an epidural or Cesarean, we’ll cover how you can be empowered that way, too!
WHAT KIND OF COMFORT MEASURES WILL I LEARN?
We focus on comfort measures such as movement, positioning, water immersion, as well as deep breathing, visualization, and relaxation. Each student will be given tools to practice their relaxation exercises at home.
IS THIS CLASS APPROPRIATE FOR HOME BIRTH OR HOSPITAL BIRTH?
We’ve had students from all different birth settings take our class! Our focus on non-drug comfort measures makes it applicable to home birth as well as hospital birth clients. Home birth clients will have a special video to watch about home birth and home-to-hospital transfers.
HOW MUCH DO THESE CLASSES COST, AND WHERE / WHEN ARE THEY OFFERED?
I offer two enrollment options - the basic package and the deluxe package. Right now, the pricing varies between $175 - $375 depending on which package you choose, and whether or not you sign up during the "Early Bird" enrollment period (which typically ends about two weeks before the class starts. )
Standard package: Includes 3-months access to the online portion of the class, printed materials, private Facebook community, two in-person classes, and a class reunion. $275 ($175 early bird)
Deluxe package: Includes 6-months access to the online portion of the class, printed materials, private Facebook community, two in-person classes, an extra in-person class to practice advanced comfort measures, a class reunion. a private birth planning session or fear release session with me, and a professional grade birth ball. $375 ($275 early bird)
