Hi, my name is Cassandra Newman and I’m an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor!
Evidence Based Birth® Instructor is a birth professional specially trained in how to help families get evidence based care. I am one of only about 100 Evidence Based Birth® Instructors around the world!
I applied to become an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor because I believe that every birthing person deserves a positive, respectful and safe experience. Sadly this is not a reality for most women, but I’m proud to be joining forces with professionals and parents around the world to ensure that things change for the better!
If you want to be empowered with the latest evidence and to take control over your birth OR if you want to help your clients take control over their births, then keep reading to find out what I can offer you.
What I offer
Savvy Birth Pro Workshop
I am excited to bring Savvy Birth Pro Workshops to the Central Mississippi area!

Comfort Measures for L&D Nurses Workshop
Are you an L & D nurse who wishes you had more tools in your toolbox to help keep patients comfortable during labor?
By attending Comfort Measures for Labor and Delivery Nurses, you will not only get hands-on practice with comfort measures skills, but you'll also learn how you can overcome barriers to providing comfort measures on your unit!
All nurses who register at the Professional level or higher will earn 3 nursing contact hours, and those who register as Super Users will receive a Comfort Measures Toolkit to take back to your unit and teach to your peers. Come enjoy an afternoon of demonstrations, discussion, and networking with L & D nurses from all over our area!

Due Dates (with Advanced Maternal Age) Seminar by EBB
Did you know that the rate of labor induction has drastically
increased over the last 30 years? In this Evidence Based Birth® seminar, packed with facts, you will learn the evidence on 39-week induction and for induction at or past the "due date". We cover the recent ARRIVE study in depth and we’ll also cover a bit about “advanced maternal
age,” and discuss the actual numbers of increase in stillbirth with older age."
Evidence Based Birth® is 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. We also offer 1.5 contact hours from the American College of Nurse Midwives.
Upcoming Due Dates (with Advanced Maternal Age) Seminar:
Newborn Procedures in the Golden Hour Seminar by EBB
What is the evidence on the safety of Vitamin K? Does delayed cord clamping lead to jaundice? How can we help families who give birth by Cesarean get skin to skin in our local operating rooms? In this interactive seminar, we will take an in-depth look at the research evidence on newborn procedures for term infants during the “golden hour.” We will cover the history and research on interventions that happen during the first hour of life—including which procedures are the “best practices,” and which procedures can be safely delayed or declined!
After attending this seminar, you will walk away with confidence in your ability to talk with clients about the latest evidence on skin-to-skin, delayed cord clamping, bathing, weighing, hatting, Vitamin K, and eye ointment.
Upcoming Newborn Procedures in the Golden Hour Seminar:
