Are you looking for a childbirth class that gives you the flexibility of learning online, but also the support and encouragement from an instructor?

A message from Molly:

Each time I facilitate this series of classes, I am reminded of the importance of discovering the "Why" for each participant.  I watch and listen as they become more confident in their choices, their ability to dialogue, and gain knowledge of the tools they have for comfort measures during birth.  

I am excited to continue to bring this Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class to families.

  • Mentorship from Molly Patterson, experienced EBB Instructor

  • Five weeks of online videos for you and your partner to watch together

  • Six weekly Zoom discussions with your EBB Instructor and peers

"Molly was so energetic and a wealth of knowledge. We always looked forward to our weekly meeting with her and the group. She did a wonderful job leading the group, adding additional information from her own personal experiences, and making everyone feel welcome. Although we met virtually she did a wonderful job making us feel like we knew each other for years. Lastly, her knowledge and empowerment that she passed along to us are worth every penny we spent on this class. We love Molly and will miss our group meetings!"

Will I Learn how to have a Natural Birth?

Evidence Based Birth® believes that every person has their own unique path. Instead of focusing on medicated vs. unmedicated birth, we focus on giving you tools and helping you learn the evidence, so that you can be empowered to make your own decisions! We do have a strong emphasis on non-drug comfort measures, because they have no side effects and can be used by everyone, whether or not you plan to use medications.

At the end of this class, my goal is that you have the ability to communicate your goals and expectations for your birth experience to the collaborative team working to support you. Being heard, respected and empowered in your choices.

“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!”

Savvy Birth Class for Parents
Are you anxious about your upcoming birth? 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.


Unlike other childbirth classes, we will help you avoid the typical assembly-line care with five 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 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 and ready to approach the big day with a savvy swing in your step!


Learning Objectives covered in this Class:      

  1. Define evidence-based care and discuss the difference between evidence-based care and routine care

  2. Describe how the power system works in most hospital labor and delivery units

  3. Discuss ways to create a team-based atmosphere in the birthing room, so that you and your partner can get evidence-based, family-centered care


These Savvy Birth Parents Classes are  taught by Molly Patterson, CLD, Evidence Based Birth® Instructor.
