Debra Pascali

We are thrilled to be kicking off the 2017 GOLD Midwifery Online Conference with a keynote presentation from Debra Pascali-Bonaro, longtime birth activist and director of Orgasmic Birth. As an international speaker with a background that includes working with Lamaze International and DONA International, Debra has a zeal for bringing comfort, love, and pleasure into birth.

During “Moving from Pain to Power, with Passion and Pleasure”, attendees will delve deeper into the hormones of birth and contemplate the sexuality of childbirth. Debra will examine modern birth practices and how they are disconnected from birth being a joyful, transformative experience.

Join us on February 6 for “Moving from Pain to Power, with Passion and Pleasure” which will be presented at 17:00 UTC and again at 23:00 UTC.

And don’t forget about our closing keynote. We’ll be joined by Robin Lim with “Birth in the Era of Climate Change: Lessons learned in the Epicenter of Disasters” on February 20 at 14:00 UTC and again at 24:00 UTC.

Not able to join us live? No problem! Recordings will be publically available until March 10.
