Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class - Mesa
A message from Lora, your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor: When I had my first baby, I decided I wanted to be prepared for birth. My husband was on board as he likes to know what he’s getting into before it happens. We started searching, but we found that the internet was so overwhelming; everyone has an opinion and I didn’t know who to listen to. So, we made a commitment to an in-person class. It was great, but we missed out on some experiences in the other parts of our life because we were in class every Friday night for 12 weeks. After I had my first baby, I knew I needed to spread the word about how amazing childbirth can be. It’s not all screaming and agonizing pain. It is beauty and bonding with a little hard work to get there. So I got certified to teach childbirth education and have been interested in all things birth ever since. When I found Evidence Based Birth, I knew Rebecca was on to something that was going to change maternity care and I knew I had to be a part of it. I am so thrilled to be able to bring this class to the Phoenix area. 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!” When you take the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class, you will: Get mentored by your own Evidence Based Birth® Instructor!
