The Bonapace Method

For Medical Providers

Bring the Bonapace Method into your own pregnancy coaching and support services.

Training Level I

This four-day training is designed for Doulas, midwives, nurses and other healthcare professionals who would like to teach the Bonapace Method to expecting couples. At the end of the training, you will have everything you need to set up prenatal classes for parents and incorporate Bonapace Method principles into your perinatal care practices.

This training will allow you to:

  • Understand the theoretical basis of the Bonapace Method
  • Explain the origins of obstetrical pain and the three endogenous mechanisms for modulating pain
  • Put into practice techniques from non-pharmacological pain management models
  • Describe and create the conditions that promote the release of hormones that help women give birth with ease, safety and pleasure

  • Prepare the father or partner to take an active role during pregnancy and birth
  • Put specific adult education principles into practice
