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.

Here’s what our program participants are saying…
"This course completely altered how I work with my clients. This course added to my knowledge of female physiology and what women are capable of in the right circumstances. I learned how to set the scene and talk about sexuality during prenatal sessions in a way that empowers my clients (even those who are most shy!) I look forward to continuing to expand how I run my prenatal sessions and support my clients in labor."
Genevieve @brightdaydoula
“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.”

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,

Here’s what’s included in the Orgasmic Birth Practitioner Training Program:

"The Orgasmic Birth Practitioner Program increased my confidence so much in my ability to effectively link our sexuality and birth in ways that make sense to the average person who would never think of putting those 2 together, helping people to open up to the possibility of pleasurable experiences during birth from the get-go! The community formed during the cohort was so fabulous and was an international melting post of birth keepers who get it and the discussions we had were so meaningful! Being a part of that community moving forward is such a blessing!! "
Dr. Zazu Cioce, DPT, Founder of Phoenix PT, Pelvic Physical Therapist & Birth Worker
“Debra teaches from the heart, sharing the science and wisdom she has learned as an international birth worker. She’s on a mission to give birth back to women and their families through her innovative course.”
Julie Bonapace, M.Ed. author of The Bonapace Method, Trusting Birth

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

Sharmila Devi Iyyandhurai
"Taking the Orgasmic Birth Practitioner (OBP) Training helped me reboot my perspective after a particularly challenging quarter of births and difficulty for me and my clients in birth. I was feeling disillusioned and disappointed in myself and my knowledge after most births. I put my OBP learned mindset to task with my first physician birther. they understood what was needed intellectually to help her oxytocin receptors really take hold and made it happen for her birth and labor. Win! Win!"
