Invaluable information!

As an L&D nurse, I love having this evidenced- based birth education available. It’s truly changed many aspects of my practice in pain management for patients, as well as teaching points for new parents in caring for their infants.

This was great information!! I don’t think many people realize just how pain is perceived differently for everyone. Thank you for sharing this information!

Old episodes are great, new ones are off topic

I pass older episodes to clients all the time because they have great information. The podcast recently has been all about the upcoming book and is no longer relevant. I’m sure it’s fascinating if you have an Interest in writing a book but most people aren’t writing a book, and would be searching out different podcasts for that information anyway.I would love to see this podcast get back on track with great information for birth workers and expecting parents.

Where are the working women?

I appreciate the insights of this podcast. I’m just starting out as a doula, with a full time job as a designer and am a single woman with no children. I’ve heard a lot of women share their stories who clearly don’t require a full time income from their work in childbirth, or mothers who are able to take a lot of flexible time with their children. It would be great to hear more acknowledgements that this is not the norm for a lot of people. A diversity in opinions on this front would be helpful.

Perfect for sharing

As a doula and childbirth educator this podcast is my go to resource for sharing the research on on issues important to my clients. The information is evidence based as the title suggests but the host, Rebecca Dekker, digest the information in to bite side episodes with understandable language. This podcast should be a go to resource for every expecting family.

Incredible, well-rounded source of info

I'm a doula and have been following Evidence Based Birth, since I first heard of it. I read the blog and check the website often, but the podcast is a very good source of short, easy-to-digest, gems of information for parents-to-be and birth professionals. It's easy to keep up-to-date on the actual research evidence (rather than the abundance of opinions and anecdotes) while driving to my appointments throughout the day. Great resource.

Better to read

This podcast is completely inaccessible. I have a PHD and a ton of experience with quantitative data. 28 weeks pregnant, I couldn't be more interested. However, the information is way too dense for the audio format and not explained well for the listener.

Great Resource!

I’m so excited to have found this podcast via a doula org that I’m a part of. Great work Rebecca!!! it is helpful, insightful, and the episodes are short & sweet. As a newer doula, this podcasts is extremely helpful in that I can consider and learn about issues that I haven’t come across in my experience. Definitely looking forward to becoming more involved w EBBirth! 💛💛💛

Love this podcast!

So much great information that is shared in a non-biased way with studies to back it all up. It’s also shared in terms that anyone can understand. You don’t have to have a medical background to learn great things. I love it!

Thanks for the data

Rebecca, I am so grateful for you and the access you are giving people to real data. I feel like so many people educate from secondary sources. I’m always wanting to know the source of information given by my dr, doula, friends. Two things, first my care provider tried to get me worked up at 20 weeks about having a “big baby”. Your article gave me confidence to make my own informed decisions. PS I’m 6ft tall and had a 7.5 lb baby at 39+ weeks. Looking back I can see how my caregiver was trying to shift control to her side, by using fear. Second, is there any chance you could break down research on the glucose screening test? I eat a 90% paleo diet and I refused the test because I was afraid of what my body would do with the crappy ingredients in the Glucola. My MD was not open to alternatives like eating the same amount of sugar in the form of organic candy or juice. She ordered the test, I refused to go. After a few weeks she did a few blood tests and was happy enough with the results. Anyway, I don’t understand why it’s best practice for R/O GD is to feed a mother Glucola. I would love to hear what the research actually says. And if there is any support for alternatives. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Love EBP, great for everyone

From an expected parent, to nurse/OB/CNM, to doula, this is a great podcast. I feel like if more providers honored patient's wishes we'd have healthy and better outcomes. Rebecca does a great job bringing up articles and evidence that shows everyone information on these topics
