Be the Change: Baltimore

March 25, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Be the Change: Baltimore is an Evidence Based Birth® event, taught by Dr. Rebecca Dekker and sponsored by Maryland Families for Safe Birth.  This special event takes place at The Womb Room on Sunday, March 25, from 10 AM to 5 PM.  Seats are limited—only 40 spots are available.

UPDATE: Registration extended through Sunday, March 18 – don’t miss out!

Be the Change: Baltimore is a one-day event with 6 hours of continuing education. Registration is open to both professionals and advocates.

Are you frustrated by high Cesarean rates, low VBAC rates, and difficulty accessing birth centers? Are you fed up with the tragic and unacceptable racial disparities in birth outcomes? Are you tired of how long it takes to change the birth climate through legislation? And are you more than ready for your clients to be able to easily access evidence based care?

This Evidence Based Birth® Be the Change event, hosted at the Womb Room in Baltimore, will inspire, empower, and equip you with an action plan you can use to bring evidence based care to your own birth community. This is a huge opportunity for us to learn directly from the founder of Evidence Based Birth®, Dr. Rebecca Dekker, about how we can begin to solve our seemingly un-solvable problems. In addition to spending the day with Dr. Dekker, you will also get the invaluable chance to build connections with birth professionals from Maryland and beyond who are passionate about evidence based care.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe how to create change in the hospital setting
  • Discuss how to use your sphere of influence vs. sphere of concern
  • Demonstrate communication techniques you can use to create change
  • Describe how to form inter-professional teams and overcome barriers to change
  • Discuss how change happens at the legislative level
