Rebecca Dekker PhD, RN

Hello! My name is Rebecca Dekker, and I am a nurse with my PhD and the founder of Evidence Based Birth®. For decades, the vast majority of birth research evidence has been locked away in medical journals. I believe in putting the evidence back in the hands of the people who need it the most: birthing people and their and families.

In 2012, I embarked on a mission to create a trusted, non-biased source for the most current, evidence-based information on pregnancy and childbirth. This project came to be known as Evidence Based Birth®.

Our vision is to ensure that one day every pregnant person around the world will experience only the highest standard, most respectful and empowering childbirth care possible. Our mission is to raise the quality of childbirth care globally, by putting accurate, evidence based research into the hands of families and communities, so they can make informed, empowered choices.
