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.
