A message from Scarlett Lynsky, your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:
When I gave birth for the first time, I was young and naive. Like most people, I sort of stumbled into the care provider I chose, but unlike most, I stumbled into respectful, compassionate, evidence-based care from a Certified Professional Midwife.
My birth was exhilerating! Even though my body felt pretty beat up, I had never felt more powerful in my life. As I gathered stories from more and more friends and acquaintances, I realized that my positive birth story was the exception not the norm, which broke--and still breaks!--my heart.
As a birth doula for the past 10 years, I see how doctors, nurses and midwives have the best intentions, but are often limited by the flaws in the maternity care system and take power away from the person giving birth in small and large ways. You deserve to have an empowering start to parenthood, and I'm here to help you learn how to work that system to your advantage.
Listen to what some of the first students of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class have had to say:
“This class is a total gamechanger for us. I’d heard negative stories…I was scared and very on edge. Then once we started taking the class, and when we learned about interventions that I was apprehensive about… It brought us together in that [my partner] understood birth more, and I understood it more. And as soon as I went into labor, we were on. We were a team.”
“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!”
