This workshop gives birth professionals the skills they need to make a genuine difference and to help their clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care during pregnancy and birth

Are you passionate about evidence based care, but regularly witness hospital policies taking precedence over your client's choices? It can be frustrating to watch clients receive care that isn’t based on research and not quite knowing how to help.

After attending the three-hour Savvy Birth Pro Workshop, you will walk away with confidence in your ability to help your clients assert their right to evidence based care in a respectful way that builds bridges, not walls. We believe that the inspirational knowledge you will gain from the Savvy Birth Pro Workshop will have a positive ripple effect that extends to your clients, the professionals you work with, and your community!

You’re no longer alone in the quest to help more families receive respectful, high quality maternity care! The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop does more than provide great skills; it creates a strong community of connected professionals who together share this important mission.
