Orgasmic Birth Practitioner Training

Our world is changing.

As a birth practitioner, you see this every day.

We are experiencing a global shift away from the over-medicalization of birth.

And with that shift, the demand for highly-trained natural birth practitioners is growing rapidly.

Women are no longer accepting birth as a “condition that must be treated”.

They seek a more gentle, natural — and yes, orgasmic! — experience.

And that’s why we’ve created the

Orgasmic Birth Practitioner Training Program!

    We know that trauma in birth has life-long effects on both mother and baby. 


    We also know that there is another way… 


    For more than 30 years, I have traveled the world and been present for thousands of births – from hospitals to yurts, beautiful and orgasmic to painful and tragic, I have seen it all.


    I watched as hospital births became the norm and women became just another patient, and I have been witness to the ways that this has negatively impacted so many families, and ultimately, our entire world.


    The unfortunate reality is the inequities in healthcare have had a deep, lasting impact.


    But there is good news… 


    Women are awakening to the need to return home to themselves and their innate ability to do that which is most natural — give birth — without unnecessary medical intervention.


    However, as they say, “It takes a village”, or in this case, an educated, compassionate team to support mama and baby in having the best possible birth experience.


    And that’s why you’re here…

    To be an Orgasmic Birth Practitioner is to:


    Remove the shame and stigma associated with birth as an orgasmic experience.

    Call forth the divine feminine power that has been shunned away.

    Give voice to women who have been silenced.


    Be an advocate and active participant in bringing forth change and removing the inequities that exist in the medical field when it comes to birth and postpartum.


    Be a leader in the return to the way birth was meant to be.

    You’re here because you have felt called to this work… 

    Are you ready to answer the call?

      Here’s what our program participants are saying…
      “This program will shed a magical light on the real possibilities that are held within birth. Birth is not something that happens to you, it is something you get to be a part of and facilitate. This program teaches you how.”
      Cate Moll
      “There is so much to learn pertaining to "orgasmic birth." The program will give you all the information that you need and more to add to your practice and/or personal life. The information provided and resources, such as, podcasts, guests, studies, reading materials and more is time well spent. You will not leave the program disappointed.”
      Tisha Hadley
      “It was an honor to learn from Debra Pascali-Bonaro and be among the first graduates of her Orgasmic Birth Practioner Program. A well-laid-out structure that gives clarity on all the aspects of the Orgasmic Birth, the meetings with speakers, and scientific articles covering the anatomy and physiology of birth in connection with human sexuality are among the program's features I appreciated the most. However, my biggest surprise was discovering how much I could learn from the alumni community Debra built along the way. Knowledge exchange and deep discussions on taboo topics in the safe international circle of birth practitioners with a variety of cultural backgrounds and professional experiences, as well as their feedback and amazing support as we work on our diverse paths in sharing Orgasmic Birth with the world, all of it felt like a high-value bonus to me I deeply grateful for.”
      Ekaterina Baranova

      Meet your Teacher

      Debra Pascali-Bonaro

      I’ve spent the last 30 years traveling the world as a childbirth educator, doula, and doula instructor.

      Now I want to share with you all the essential knowledge that I’ve picked up along the way – my secrets, my tools, and the inspiration for my work.

      Being a birth practitioner is an act of compassion and love. Everyone who enters this field of work does so from a desire to provide support to women at their most vulnerable moments.

      A quick story about what brought me here… 

      I was one of the “lucky ones”. I was privileged to be able to take the time to educate myself when I was pregnant. I knew that I had the power within to give birth the way that I had intended to and I was determined not to let anyone put me down physically or emotionally.

      After my son’s birth, I started to reflect upon my experience in birth and began to question why so many people accept our broken system as it was and go along with the assembly line of generic interventions, wanting to trust the process yet feeling inside that something was wrong with it.

      I was inspired to provide relief to this issue, and so I became a childbirth educator. My role as a classroom educator evolved, and soon families began to invite me to attend their births.

      I quickly learned that I had become a doula, and was part of the beginnings of the doula movement. I became one of the first DONA approved birth and postpartum doula trainers teaching parents, doulas, midwives, doctors and nurses around the world.

      I have seen firsthand how current practices in birth often create pain when there are so many simple ways to reduce pain, making natural birth a much more feasible option, which is why the work I do as chair of the International MotherBaby Childbirth Organization and co-chair of the International Childbirth Initiative: 12 Steps to Safe and Respectful MotherBaby-Family Maternity Care is so important to me.

      I have learned that by taking away the power of birth, and by putting women in beds and hospital gowns, stripping away their ability to move, dance, and find joy in childbirth we have not only made birth more difficult, and more painful, but sadly we are missing out on an amazing opportunity to birth ourselves and our babies with respect, dignity, love, pleasure, and creating a heightened physical and emotional experience – one that I call Orgasmic!

      Statistics have shown that we have pushed the limits of what technology can do for us, and now we know the many short and long-term consequences for Mother-Baby and Family when we use drugs and surgery when they are not needed.
      It’s my greatest desire to spread this knowledge by making it more accessible, and that’s why I created the Orgasmic Birth Practitioner Training Program!

      I am on a mission to help fill the need for qualified, compassionate birth workers so that more women can give birth in setting or situation with love, dignity, and respect. 

      Come and join me and allow me to guide you on this sacred journey…

      With sincere love and pleasure,

        Regena Thomashauer, Founder and CEO of Mama Gena's School of Womanly Arts Author of the New York Times bestseller, "Pussy: A Reclamation"
        “Debra’s life work is to reframe today’s widespread belief that birth is frightening, dangerous, and painful. In everything she says and does, Debra models the joy, pleasure and empowerment that is available in birth. Let her show you how to prepare yourselves for the rewards of giving birth.”
        Penny Simkin, PT, Author, Doula, Childbirth Educator, Birth Counselor

        Learn from Top Leaders in Birth & Sexuality

        There is so much more you can offer your clients when you go beyond what traditional Doula/birth practitioner training programs offer.

        At Orgasmic Birth, we know that it is imperative that women be supported before and well beyond labor and birth.

        They desire and deserve to be led on a journey of love and pleasure, from creating their unique birth plan to adjusting to their new life as a mom — without losing who they are as a woman and sexual being.

        We also know that birth is not just a physical experience… 

        It is emotional, sexual, and spiritual.

        To make sure you are equipped to support your clients in this unique way, our program includes a monthly, live 60-90 minute learning session with a top leader in birth and sexuality.

She has a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality (DHS), a graduate degree in Clinical Social Work (MSW), and a Bachelors (BA) degree in Psychology and Educational Counseling.

        Nathan Riley, MD

        Nathan Riley, MD, is a board-certified OB-GYN and fellow of ACOG who left the medical industrial complex due to his disillusionment with the “standard of care” within the conventional maternity care model. This was hard because “going with the flow” of hospital-based practice was providing him financial security. On the other hand, standing in his truth from having sat with over 1000 births and connecting with women and their families has provided him a lifestyle more in alignment with fatherhood, deepening his connection with his wife, and caring for people in the way that he had anticipated long before stepping into practice.

        Tami Lynn Kent

        Tami Lynn Kent is the founder of Holistic Pelvic Care for women and author of Wild Feminine, Mothering from Your Center and Wild Creative. Tami is a Women’s Health Physical Therapist with a master’s degree in physical therapy. In 2019 she presented a TEDx talk called “The Vagina Whisperer: Moving from Shame to Honor in the Female Body.” She has worked with thousands of women in pregnancy and postpartum pelvic care and runs an international training program for women’s health practitioners. Tami is the mother to three beautiful sons. She is passionate about teaching women and mothers ways to cultivate the creative energy meant to flow through all aspects of ones life to access this beauty and wildness within. Find out more at
