Louisville Birth Summit:
"How to Help Families find Evidence Based Care" AND
"The Evidence on Due Dates and Advanced Maternal Age"

Evidence Based Birth® has created a live event that will serve as the catalyst for nurses, midwives, physicians, doulas, and childbirth educators in Louisville and the surrounding region to build their expertise so that they can continue to bring evidence based care to birthing families!

Join us for the inaugural Louisville Birth Summit on Saturday, September 10th, 2016, for a four-hour continuing education workshop in Louisville, Kentucky. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition-- a grassroots organization that is working to expand midwifery access in Kentucky. 

SPEAKER

Engage with an internationally-known speaker who will transform the way you think about critical childbirth issues.

FAQ

Will I be able to earn CEUs? 

Yes! Evidence Based Birth® is a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing. This Summit offers 4.0 nursing contact hours that are accepted by most doula and childbirth organizations (including DONA International) as well as organizations for certified professional midwives. We have also been approved for 0.4 CEUs from the American College of Nurse Midwives. 

Is this a special fundraiser? 

Yes! The proceeds from ticket sales at this event will be directly donated to the Kentucky Home Birth Coalition, a grassroots organization that is working hard to expand midwifery options in Kentucky. The coalition is currently employing a lobbyist at the cost of about $2,000 per month. Their funding will run out in September 2016. Keeping a lobbyist during the legislative "off season" is critical to their goal of getting legislation passed in 2017. Our goal with this Louisville Birth Summit is to fund the cost of a lobbyist for at least one month and hopefully two! 

Why are there different priced packages? 

This a fundraiser to go towards a great cause, and we wanted to create different levels for those of you who can contribute different amounts! Also, there are costs associated with providing continuing education units. The professional and deluxe packages help cover those costs so that we can provide you with CEUs (and other perks!). The basic admission price is for those of you who would like to attend, but do not need the CEUs. For those of you who are interested in the deluxe ticket, you can view the letter press print options here (https://evidence-based-birth.myshopify.com/collections/prints-letterpress), and you can view the contents of the EBB PDFs here (https://evidence-based-birth.myshopify.com/collections/printer-friendly-pdfs/products/all-blog-article-printer-friendly-pdfs?variant=1238350783)

When is the deadline to register? 

The deadline to register is Tuesday, September 6th, by 9 PM EDT.

What if I can't attend because I'm at a birth? 

Unfortunately, due to the up-front costs of preparing for your attendance, refunds are not available. However, if you are not able to attend, we can supply you with equivalent priced digital products from Evidence Based Birth®. For example, if you paid $50 and cannot attend, you will be offered $50 worth of digital products, classes, or memberships from EBB, and so on.
