A message from Joyce Dykema (she/her), your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:
When I was expecting my third baby, I had been working as a birth doula for five years, and I'd had two empowering birth experiences already, so I anticipated a similar experience for this baby. My husband and I were excited to welcome our last baby at the same hospital where our first two children had been born, and with our midwives, we made our plans and preparations for a similar birth.However, those plans crumbled when the hospital decided to withdraw support for my birth plan, just weeks before my due date. I knew the evidence supported my plans for staying comfortable during my birth, but my provider's hands were tied. Now, my husband and I needed to speak up and advocate for ourselves, ultimately choosing to transfer our care to a different facility that truly supported us. Our new providers and birth setting supported my birth plan, and I had the empowering and comfortable birth experience I had prepared for! Now, through the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, I am proud to skillfully mentor you and your partner in evidence based care, comfort measures, and advocacy, so that you can embrace your birth and parenting experiences with courage and confidence.-Joyce
Listen to what some of the first students of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class have had to say:
“This class is a total gamechanger for us. I’d heard negative stories…I was scared and very on edge. Then once we started taking the class, and when we learned about interventions that I was apprehensive about… It brought us together in that [my partner] understood birth more, and I understood it more. And as soon as I went into labor, we were on. We were a team.”
“I really appreciated how informative it was. I knew a lot about the biology of birth and babies, but what we learned was just very impressive. It was a really good experience—fairly chill, fairly laid-back, and not nearly as stressful and awkward as I thought it might be. All the information—I never would’ve thought there was that much information out there!”
