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:
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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%.
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 email@example.com
As long as African American mothers and babies are dying at disparately high rates, I am committed to offering partial and full scholarships for men and women birth professionals of color. Please contact us to apply today: firstname.lastname@example.org
