I interviewed Rebecca Dekker from Evidence Based Birth on April 13, 2020, for an expert interview bonus episode exclusive to our patreon listener supporters. We scheduled that interview months in advance before Coronavirus was on anyone’s radar in the U.S.

She was so generous to stick around for an extra conversation about the existing evidence/research around COVID-19 and I wanted to make sure that portion of the interview was available to our entire audience. Unfortunately, there’s not a ton of research on this novel coronavirus because it’s still so new but Rebecca is working overtime to keep her Coronavirus page up-to-date on Evidence Based Birth and I was so grateful for the insight she provided. I honestly felt more at ease after talking with her and I hope many of you will as well. Be sure to also check out Rebecca’s book, Babies Are Not Pizzas: They’re Born, Not Delivered!
