In this episode, I interview Evidence Based Birth® Instructor Tara Thompson. Tara is a certified birth doula with CAPPA, a Lamaze certified childbirth educator, and a licensed massage therapist specializing in pregnancy and postpartum. She has taught classes to expecting couples for more than ten years at a women’s center in Atlanta, Georgia. She’s also been teaching privately for over three years.

Tara teaches the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class online, and has also taught the EBB Comfort Measures Workshop for L&D nurses. She recently facilitated a training to more than 250 birth professionals at a large hospital to help lower the Cesarean birth rate, and educate staff on comfort measures during labor. We talk about Tara’s unique insights into hospital birth, policies, and culture, as well as the impact and importance of childbirth education. She and I also talk about the beginnings of Evidence Based Birth®. For more information and news about Evidence Based Birth®, visit www.ebbirth.com.
