Listen to what some of the first students of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class have had to say:
“This class is a total game changer 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!”
"Great instructor! Definitely recommend."

A Message from Maura Jo, Connecticut-based EBB Instructor
I started teaching childbirth education in 2007 and have taught a number of programs both independently and in the hospital setting at three different hospitals and there is NOTHING else like the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class on the market. Add to it with the Hypnosis, Mindset and Mindfulness Module and you have the best possible preparation I have seen in all my years in this field. This program teaches Comfort (so birthing can feel better), Advocacy (SO important right now and a great skill for parenting too), and Evidence (so you know how to get optimal care for yourself, whatever the circumstances), with synchronous Mentorship every week of the program! Plus, you get to do the weekly assignments at your own pace AND earn points to redeem for fun little prizes at the end of our last class meeting. My goal is to teach folks how to empower and prepare themselves during their journey into parenthood (and make it fun). I look forward to mentoring you in comfort measures, getting evidence-based care, and learning advocacy skills that you need to prepare for parenthood.
These are the topics we’ll cover that will help you and your birth partner prepare for birth!
How your Partner can be your Advocate
Evidence Based Care
Overcoming Fears and Anxieties
Stages of Labor
Navigating the Healthcare System
Providers (Models of Care)
Communicating with Hospital Staff
Know your Rights
Pain Coping Tools (Pain Relief)
Baby Care & Breastfeeding Overview
Will I Learn how to have a Natural (Physiologic) 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 and how to navigate your care, so that you can make your own informed decisions! This program provides a strong emphasis on non-drug (physiologic) techniques for the birthing room, because they have no side effects and can be used by everyone, with or without medications.
At the end of this class, you will have all the tools you need to create your optimal labor and birth experience. If you want a physiolgic birth, this class will give you basic mindset skills (relaxation) and physical techniques you need. If you're looking for more, select the ticket with the Hypnosis, Mindset and Mindfulness Module included for additional mindset skills to keep comfortable, calm and confident during your birthing time!
We’ll cover how you can be prepared for any curveballs that might come your way on your big day, too!
Class Format: Online and Zoom Call
In the interest of everyone's health and well-being, at this time, all classes will be held online via Zoom call.
