Will I Learn how to have an unmedicated birth? 
Evidence Based Birth® believes 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 your goal is an unmedicated birth, this class will give you the relaxation and pain management tools you need to accomplish your goal. If you choose an epidural or cesarean, we’ll cover how you can feel empowered that way, too!

Standard package: 3-months access to the Evidence Based Birth® parent site, 2 in-person and 4 Zoom sessions, and your very own workbook.
Deluxe package: 6-months access to the Evidence Based Birth® parent site, 2 in-person and 4 Zoom sessions, your very own workbook, and a beautiful hand-woven fair-trade rebozo from Mexico.
