Evidence Based Birth® Professional Membership:
Making Change in your Community

How can you help families in your community get evidence based care?

Here's the deal: You and I both want evidence based care to be the "norm" for birthing families in our community. But on average, it takes 15 to 20 years for evidence to be put into practice. This situation is totally unacceptable! How can we speed up that gap so that families can get that care right here, right now? 

Learn how to be a change agent in your community... and then also get the support you need right here in the Evidence Based Birth® professional membership. Our members get immediate access to: 

  • An 8-hour CEU training course on "How to help families get evidence based care"
  • 10 additional hours of CEU courses (all courses are approved for nursing, ACNM CEUs, Midwifery Bridge Certificate, and prescribed AAFP credit; nursing hours good towards most doula, midwifery, and childbirth educator certifications)
  • Live monthly training sessions on hot topics in the field
  • A library of printer-friendly PDFs to share with your clients
  • A supportive community forum for sharing challenges, struggles, and success stories!

An inter-professional community where we all come together

Our community is one-of-a-kind in the birth world, because it is made up of all kinds of professionals! We have nurses, midwives, certified midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, obstetricians, and family physicians among our ranks. We are all here to support one another in the quest to get evidence based care into our communities. 

18+ hours of continuing education 

Your membership comes with 5 formal courses (18 hours and counting) that have all been approved for contact hours and CEUs by the Kentucky Board of Nursing and the American College of Nurse Midwives. Most doulas and childbirth educators are also able to claim these hours towards their continuing education. The classes that are available right now include: "How to help families get evidence based care" (our flagship course; worth 8 hours or 0.7 CEUs), "Vitamin K and Eye Ointment" (2 hours and 0.2 pharm ACNM CEUs), "Due Dates and Advanced Maternal Age" (3 hours and 0.3 ACNM CEUs), "Big Babies and Gestational Diabetes" (3 hours and 0.3 ACNM CEUs), and "Friedman's Curve and Failure to Progress" (2 contact hours and 0.2 ACNM CEUs).

Also, for physicians: This Enduring Material series activity, Evidence Based Maternity Care for Physicians, from 09/06/2016 - 09/05/2017, has been reviewed and is acceptable for credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Live monthly training sessions with Rebecca

You can attend our live monthly training sessions on hot topics like horizontal violence in birth work, how to become a "change agent," interpreting research on home birth, trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, and more. Training sessions are always recorded so that if you can't make it live, you can watch the recorded session at your leisure. 

Library of printer-friendly PDFs

Evidence Based Birth® makes the most thorough educational PDFs in the birth world! With your membership, you will have access to the entire library of our full-length printer-friendly PDFs, as well as all of the short versions. Without a membership, it costs $99 to purchase the entire bundle of PDFs. With a membership, you get them all for free!

  • Professional Members also get:
  • Early access ("sneak peeks") to new Evidence Based Birth®  articles before they are released to the public
  • Member discussion and Q & A with Rebecca about each of the course topics! 
  • Plus...

Add the Evidence Based Birth® professional membership to your bio and resume!

As long as you are a member, you have the right to list "Evidence Based Birth® professional membership" on your resume, bio, and website. Also, after completing the flagship course ("How to help families get evidence based care"), you will receive a professional member badge for your website.

Group Discounts

We offer group discounts for doula groups, midwifery practices, birth centers, and other organizations who want to purchase a membership in bulk or a practice-wide license. With a group membership, each member gets their own unique login and password. 

Bulk memberships can be purchased at either a monthly or annual rate. Groups of 3 or more receive a discount of 20%. 

Student Access

In the summer of 2016 we began offering university access for students. Currently, nurse-midwifery students at various universities have access to the Evidence Based Birth® professional membership for their classes.

Colleges and universities can purchase bulk access to the membership for their students at the affordable rate of $30 per student, per semester. Optionally, professors can also require students purchase a semester membership, similar to how they may require a textbook in the syllabus.

If you are a student, and you would like to purchase the membership at a discounted rate, or if you are a professor and would like to learn more about student access, please contact us at info@evidencebasedbirth.com
