Evidence Based Birth® Instructor Services

Hi! My name is Sandra and I’m an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor

An Evidence Based Birth® Instructor is a birth professional specially trained in how to help families get evidence based care. The desire to ensure that families have options, access to quality care, and support in making their decisions led me to become an instructor offering workshops for expecting parents as well as continuing education opportunities for birth professionals in Charlottesville & Central Virginia.


What I Offer:


Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class

During this challenging time, the complete Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is being offered via live Zoom sessions. Sessions have been filling up quickly – register to reserve your spot!

In my practice as a doula, it is my goal to ensure that families are well prepared to enter confidently into childbirth and the journey of parenthood. I feel strongly that parents deserve quality information, tools and support that allow them to make empowered decisions. Since beginning my journey as a doula, I have been seeking a childbirth class that fits this description, and the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class is it! I am very excited to bring the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class to Virginia!

“The walkthrough of labor was extremely helpful today. We both feel, overall, much more prepared and empowered. I thought labor and delivery would just be a horrific experience to get through, but now I’m actually looking forward to it! Thank you so much!!!!”
