Rebecca Dekker, PhD, RN, APRN, is a nurse researcher and founder of www.evidencebasedbirth.com. Rebecca was inspired to share research evidence with moms after her 2 very different birth experiences. During the birth of her first child, she received care that was based on “that’s the way we do things.” Three years later, she sought out and found someone who would provide evidence-based care at her second child’s birth. Rebecca blogs so that she can get birth evidence out into the hands of moms and families. She is also Secretary of ImprovingBirth.org and has been working on this year’s Labor Day Rally to Improve Birth. In addition to blogging and being a mom, Rebecca works full-time as a nursing professor at a research-intensive university. She teaches pathophysiology and pharmacology to BSN nursing students, and she also conducts research on using cognitive behavior therapy to treat depression and anxiety in people who are at risk for heart disease, including pregnant women.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
