TO HELP FAMILIES PREPARE FOR AN EVOLVING BIRTH LANDSCAPE UNDER COVID-19, WE ARE OFFERING ADDITIONAL SESSIONS, UPDATED WITH CURRENT INFORMATION!
Are you looking forward to having a baby, but worried about all the unknowns… like how do I know if my wishes will be respected? Will my birth plan be followed? Can I avoid a traumatic birth experience, if I had one before?
The Savvy Birth Workshop for parents was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give you and your partner the confidence and know-how you need to have a more positive, empowering experience in the birthing room.
In the Savvy Birth Workshop, you’ll learn ways to communicate effectively with your doctor, midwife, and nurse. You will discover strategies for asking questions without seeming disrespectful and you’ll get the inside scoop on how to stack the odds in your favor of having a positive birth.
Unlike other childbirth classes, we will help you avoid the typical assembly-line care with six virtual “tickets!” These “tickets” are your secret advantage to coping with the unknowns of birth. At the workshop you’ll find out how you can use these tickets in the hospital or wherever you intend to give birth.
We are excited to offer the Savvy Birth Workshop to parents in the greater DC area! We believe that the knowledge you will gain from the Savvy Birth Workshop will leave you and your partner inspired, hopeful, and excited about the upcoming birth of your baby… ready to approach the big day with a savvy swing in your step!
This Savvy Birth Workshop is taught by Rachel Carbonneau.
