    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!

    The film that started the pleasurable birth movement...

    Orgasmic Birth: The Best-Kept Secret

    “Orgasmic Birth is to give birth with and in love, to move through labor with power, and to honor the emotional and physical heights that labor holds. I believe it is every woman’s human right to have a pleasurable birth. I won’t stop until we heal our broken maternity care system, and the good news is that we are starting to make and see changes!”
