I have always prided myself in giving the most recent, evidence-based information to my clients, even before it was in vogue and "evidence-based" was a popular term. My clients had all of their options before them, ready to make choices made with full, unbiased information. I watched my voice inflection and body language to not give away my (few) biases. I didn't want to sway them. It was their birth.
Because I gave the most current, evidence-based information, I was not popular with some. Mainly because what I spoke was sometimes contrary to "the way we've always done it" or contrary to "our policy". Even when I would show the professionals telling me those things that the evidence was in their own journals, it didn't seem to matter. I cannot teach what isn't accurate. I have to tell the truth.
I have a binder in my office with evidence-based articles. I have two websites full of the evidence-based information. I still believe that providing my clients with the current research, evidence-based information and letting them make their informed decisions is the right thing to do.
And I hope I continue to teach and share the research for another 30+ years!
