I know you pour forth so much love, attention and energy in supporting women in their journey to motherhood. It's a deep honor to witness and be a guide to the portal for creation and new life.

But it can, quite honestly, feel DRAINING and DEPLETING to witness the widespread pain and trauma currently prevalent in birth over and over and over again.

In a culture where women are still fighting to reclaim autonomy and safety in our own bodies, where fear dominates our options and guides our decisions, and our religious and cultural inheritance maintain that women should suffer in birth. It is no wonder that women are still so disconnected from the primal power, magic and PLEASURE that birth can be.

We are overdue for a change. And NOW is that time.


The systems and structures that we have been "fighting" against for so long are more pliable than they have ever been. Why? Because everything is becoming exposed:

The inequity, the inhumanity, disempowerment and victim consciousness that is rampant in the current approaches to birth.  It is ENOUGH.

Birthworkers, we MUST embody the change we want to create: Journeying back to our own bodies, reclaiming the power and pleasure within, to lead from a place of JOY rather than fear.

Only then can we ELEVATE the birth experiences of our clients despite all the obstacles they face and stay VIBRANT and ENERGIZED while doing this sacred work!

If you are already supporting women
in the journey to motherhood, or would like to

I have an invitation,
just for you...

Learn how you can transform the paradigm of birth...
from pain to PLEASURE!

What you get...
EBPT Program Mockup V01
EB - Gold Divider


The curriculum for our Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training is created to be transformative for you both personally as well as professionally, as as you "rebirth" yourself and become an Ecstatic Birth Practitioner.

You gain powerful skills to better help your clients experience birth as the natural and ecstatic rite of passage it was meant to be, while simultaneously nourishing your own body while you support your clients rather than draining it.

Each month you receive a new module of materials available online, on demand, including videos, transcripts, worksheets, and body practices.

You personally do all the practices and embody the gifts of pleasure so that you can be truly effective when you share them with your clients.

Module Icon 01

Pleasure is the most holistic birthing tool there is and yet it is rarely introduced as a viable option in birth by practitioners to their clients. We discuss the benefits of pleasure in birth preparation and planning and explore the spectrum of ways in which we can use pleasure to support expectant moms.

Module Icon 02

We lay the foundations for Ecstatic Birth Training both for ourselves as practitioners and for our clients, exploring the paradigm of Ecstatic Birth, the key defining factors, the varying spectrum of client needs and aligning ourselves with the best possible outcomes for all.

Module Icon 03

In this session, we explore the language of the body and its connection to our intuitive feminine nature. The sensation of pleasure is explored as an integral part of this landscape and as a unique and fundamental birthing tool.

Module Icon 04

Pleasure is the most holistic birthing tool there is, supporting the flow of labor and delivery.  We explore the different modalities of accessing pleasure from outside of our bodies during the various stages of labor and delivery.

Module Icon 05

Pleasure has enormous potential as both tool and outcome in the birthing process, a circular supportive connection that we can hone in on and prepare for personally and to support in our clients. We explore the different modalities of expanding and accessing the pleasure within to enable us to hold the "tone" for Ecstatic Birth and teach our clients to do the same.

Module Icon 06

This month we focus on our somatic training and embodiment practices. You will receive short daily exercises to explore your connection to your body, your inner wisdom, and accessing the limitless pleasure that is always flowing within.

Module Icon 07

Every birthing mom has fears. Every practitioner has fears. Fears are as much a natural part of the birthing process as being alive. This month we learn strategies to disarm fears so that they are not the governing factor, disrupting the birthing processes.

Module Icon 08

How can we transform unexpected scenarios and outcomes in birth into our (and our clients') point of power? How can we learn to play with the unexpected rather than fear it? Birth, like life, doesn't always go to plan. In this session, we learn how to dance with the unexpected, taking our pleasure and power regardless of what the process brings.

Module Icon 09

Now that you have the basis of Ecstatic Birth prep, how can you incorporate it into your client work? This month you will receive a curriculum map and suggested workflow for sharing information and practices, with both private clients and groups.

Module Icon 10

This session is the culmination of our practitioner training and will prepare you to stand for the transformation of the cultural shift required for Ecstatic Birth to become a viable option for all birthing women.  We explore how to move forward in community to share the philosophy and the work in a way that elevates your professional and personal goals.

"Sheila stands at a threshold, inviting us into our deepest pleasure, where bliss lives in us. Who doesn't need more of that?? Our work together has taken me into a place of ever deepening relaxation, of being in and feeling real pleasure. As a woman, I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share in this exploration.

As a Doula, this work goes even deeper for me. I end up talking about pain (or rather people talk to me about their fear of pain) practically every day all day long. To break its pervasive hold, I needed to immerse myself in a conversation where pleasure can be a major part of the birth experience…of our life experience! Sheila has a gift in opening that door!"

Catherine Stewart-Lindley

Labor Doula, Lactation Counselor, Holistic Health Counselor, Childbirth Educator New York, NY

"Incorporating body exercises that I learned in Sheila's training into my routine with my clients helped me to see how being in the body is an important component of ecstatic birth preparations. I started to feel a sparkle in my eyes and feeling more joyful, by making sessions shorter and giving my clients multiple points of reference for pleasure they could experience here and now and bring into the birth room

If you are birth practitioner that is intrigued by the idea of helping women in creating their Ecstatic Birth experience, I highly recommend you to start your journey by taking this training. It will transform your perspective, your connection to your body, bring you into a sisterhood with other practitioners and give you a lot of pleasure!"

Russian birth doula and birth educator, Guatemala

There has never been a time like this.

Women are rising...

Reclaiming our connection to our bodies, our inner wisdom, our fierce feminine power.

EB - Gold Divider

Childbirth is an essential piece of this reclamation!

It is a rite of passage, a portal for mothers raising the next generation to step into this power in deep connection to our bodies.

Those of us supporting mothers-to-be are the guides and wayshowers.

But first we must take this journey ourselves!

"So much!!! So much inspiration, expansion, release. I learned what it means to truly love myself, to reclaim my pleasure, to focus on living from a state of turn on.

The knowledge I've received + embodiment I've learned has not only helped transform my life, but will also help the countless birthing women and mamas to whom I'll pass this on to."

Jenny Braxton

Birth Visionary, Community Leader & Educator Oregon, US

"No longer seeing women as victims in the labour wards. That is HUGE for me. I am understanding that all I need to do is embody the alternative I believe in. And that can only be pleasurable.

This training is also encouraging me to pleasure the other aspects of myself. Not just the doula but the creator and the mover. Which I am so thankful for."

Samara Concepcion

Birth Doula, Somatic Movement Specialist London, England

"Clarity. Understanding that I am responsible to nourish my soul and listen to her. Listen to my body and honor that as opposed to doing what I think I should do based on outer expectations or a belief in something that doesn't resonate with my deepest truth. Speaking up more about what's possible for birth and what my truth is."

Debra Samadhi Woods

Birth & Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator Vancouver, CA

"The knowledge and the skills to further elevate the experience of birth for my clients all the while maintaining my bliss and pleasure throughout the peaks and valleys of childbirth!!  

As a woman, I feel an even greater sense of love, passion, admiration, appreciation, and respect for myself and my body as well as of those of other women."

Sharon Arazi

Birth Doula and Midwife's Assistant New York, US

"It's been a very natural progression to infuse all that I've learned through my Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training into my work with clients…and not just my pregnant clients but all my women clients.

This is because at the core of Ecstatic Birth is the vibration of love and joy, pleasure and expansion, connection and alignment.. 

Through Sheila's Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training I've developed skills to guide clients to their truth, to what feels good to them and how to deepen their awareness of their body intelligence.

The training has equipped me with a language that speaks to a woman's heart because, despite a culture of misinformation, disempowerment and fear around birth, deep inside every woman is the knowing that birth is her super power. I believe women are so ready to receive and awaken the confirmation of what they already know deep inside. Ecstatic Birth is the way of the woman."

Dr Peta Elmer

Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Labor Doula  Victoria, Australia

"The Ecstatic Birth Practitioner training is near and dear to my heart not only because I am passionate about transformation childbirth in the U.S., but because it truly brought me healing and clarity that I will be forever grateful for. What I was not expecting to get out of the Ecstatic Birth Practitioner training:

Coming home to my own body. Knowing that I am safe. Feeling love and bliss inside of myself. Experiencing the richness of this human experience. My senses are now experiencing things they had never experienced before.

You may be wondering what this has to do with birth!!! Well, it's everything!!!!

Being present in your body and feeling pleasure is the thing that will allow the labor hormones to flow and will allow you to feel and trust the process.  It starts with us!"

Krystina Sloan 

Doula, Childbirth Educator, Certified Lactation Counselor Scottsdale, Arizona

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few answers to our most common questions

I hear you and I want you know that this program was created to fit within the pace of your life, not despite it!  Every Sunday you will receive an email with the course materials and relevant links for the upcoming week.  The weekly commitment to go through all the course materials and attend live calls is a maximum of 3 hours. All the body practices, which I recommend you do at least 3-4x/ week are less than 8 minutes long. I am a big believer that small practices done consistently create monumental change!  
The truth is, you make time for the things that are important to you. I suggest putting all the live call dates in your calendar upfront and blocking three hours/ week to really engage with the material. That said, I get it. Sometimes life takes over. We will have several integration weeks to give you a chance to catch up if you fall behind.  

Live sessions are generally scheduled monthly on Wednesdays at 3:30pm ET beginning in June of 2022. If you are unable to make it live, I've got you covered. You'll be able to pre-submit your questions so I can answer them on any Q+As that you are unable to make live. All sessions including practices and Q+As will be recorded and posted for easy access in our private online space. 

Yes! Thank you for asking. This is a unique opportunity to mentor with me and get personalized support, practices, and integration throughout the year. I will support 10 practitioners who are fully committed to the vision of Ecstatic Birth in embodying and bring this work out into the world in their unique way. Private coaching offers an opportunity for laser focused support around any "sticky spots" you encounter as you open to pleasure in your body and stand more firmly in your sacred work. Group sessions empower you in your leadership with themes such as: wealth consciousness, being visible, & creating counterculture. If you are interested and would like to discuss it further before formally applying, please email sheila@ecstatic-birth.com with the subject "Advanced Leadership Track".

Yes! You can pay in full or via a payment plan.  I have intentionally kept the price of this program low even though what you actually get is easily worth more than ten times as much. I want this to feel like an easy YES. If you feel the YES in your body, but still feel stumped by the financials, consider these Qs:

What is the cost of NOT doing the program? What if you are to continue on the path you are now, fully immersed in the pain game of childbirth? What is the cost to your body? To your optimism? To your ability to stand for the vision of what you know is possible? To your ability to serve your clients?

You are worth the investment. As are your clients.

I do reserve a number of seats in the program at adjusted price points. Please contact me if you live in a country where the currency is significantly devalued against the US to receive Purchase Price Parity consideration.  I also offer a limited number of partial scholarships for women who are actively doing birthwork, particularly in underserved communities, but are unable to pay full tuition.  Please email me (sheila@ecstatic-birth.com) for consideration.

For sure! The breadth and depth of wisdom here and the unique integration of pleasure and body practices into birth work is not available anywhere else on the planet. This course is just as great for someone just getting started as it is for someone who has been working for years because you will all be getting exposed to this material for the first time.

Yes, it comes with a full, 30-day money back guarantee. If you can show me that you have done all your coursework and you are still unsatisfied with the program in your first 30 days, you will receive a prompt and courteous refund.

Yes, the Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training has been approved for 59 CEUs through the International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA). ICEA credits are honored by most certifying organizations, but please do check with yours.

The Ecstatic Birth Practitioner Training:

Inspiring, Empowering, & Oh. So. Pleasurable

Sheila Image

I'll be giving you everything I've got. Are you ready to receive it?

If you are a full bodied YES to the paradigm shift that Ecstatic Birth represents and our hearts, visions, and goals are aligned,  grab your spot in this training!

Together we can revolutionize the world of birth in a way that not one of us can do alone.

In love and PLEASURE,
