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


The Savvy Birth Pro Workshop (3 contact hours) was developed by Evidence Based Birth® to give professionals the skills you need to make a genuine difference and help your clients attain the best possible chance at evidence based care during pregnancy and labor. After attending the 3-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.

This Savvy Birth Pro Workshop is taught by Joyce Dykema, MS, CD(DONA), HCHD, Evidence Based Birth® Instructor, on Friday March 16, 2018, from 2-5:30pm, at Active Life Family Chiropractic, 4141 Pioneer Woods Drive #116 in Lincoln, NE.


Contact hours: By attending the workshop and completing an online evaluation, you will earn a certificate for 3 contact hours from Evidence Based Birth®, a continuing education provider for the Kentucky Board of Nursing # 7-0081. Nursing contact hours can be applied to most childbirth educator and doula certifications, as well as the Certified Professional Midwife
credential.

Learning Objectives:

Define evidence-based care and discuss statistics on the quality of birth settings in our local community
Discuss the major reasons why we have an evidence-practice gap, including the power hierarchy and how it is a barrier to evidence-based, family-centered care
Discuss ways that we can bridge the evidence-practice gap at the system level
Discuss specific strategies we can use to help our clients obtain evidence-based care
Refund policy: Tickets are non-refundable, but may be transferred to future workshops or seminars.



Nursing babies: Quiet, immobile, nursing infants 3 months old and younger are welcome. Please find alternative care for your babies 4 months old and older.
