Year in Review


Birth Boot Camp Has Launched A New Website!

Our updated logo, now your HEADQUARTERS for natural birth!

There are lots of changes going on around here at Birth Boot Camp Headquarters, and it is very exciting! We want to take a moment to show you around our brand new website. We have added lots of things, so take a little tour with us. There is so much to see!

-Updated Classes-

We’ve completely re-recorded all of our online classes! The response has been great already. Of the changes, one student said,

“Birth Boot Camp online classes completely changed their videos in the last week! It’s even better now!… I have to say that I have been pleasantly surprised with everything. I’m pretty well-versed in prenatal care and L&D, and I learn something every week in the class.”

What has changed?

-Birth Boot Camp Store-

Need swag? We love swag and we have it! Cups, shirts, camo or limegreen foam rollers, hoodies and tons more. Did we mention Birth Boot Camp onesies for that sweet little one?

We also have our Amazon store available for you to peruse. There are so many resources out there about childbirth but it can be hard to dredge through all of them and find the best ones. We have done the work for you!

-Free Nutrition E-Book-

You will love the Birth Boot Camp Nutrition eBook. It has recipes, snack ideas, tips and much more for you as you prepare to have the best pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. Even if you aren’t ready to take a class, you can get your eBook and learn things that can help you early on in your pregnancy.

-Testimonials Page-

In the few years that we have been around, we have been privileged to receive many Birth Boot Camp testimonials. Birth experts and celebrities, doctors, professionals, but most important to us, our students, have said some wonderful things about us. We are thrilled to share them with you.

We are now training doulas!

-DOULA Program!-

You read that right — Birth Boot Camp isn’t just a childbirth education company anymore. We have launched an amazing doula program! Birth Boot Camp DOULA is training the best doulas on the planet specifically ready to support you (and that fabulous partner of yours) in the natural birth you desire. They really deserve a whole blog post of their own, so if you want to learn more, check this one out written by founder Donna Ryan.

-Breastfeeding Resources-

Breastfeeding has always been an important part of Birth Boot Camp. In fact, one of the reasons we feel so passionate about natural birth is that we feel that it can help prepare you for a better and easier start to breastfeeding.

We have added a section on the website dedicated just to breastfeeding. With gorgeous pictures, links to resources and blog posts, and a purchase option for our breastfeeding DVD, Breastfeeding: The Ultimate MRE, this is a wonderful resource for breastfeeding mamas.

-”Find a Live Class” Interactive Page-

We have instructors across America and in two other countries! Now you can find your birth teacher in a gorgeous interactive map. Their biographies are being updated as we speak and you can learn more about the local women who can help you prepare for the amazing birth you desire!

-Social Media Buttons-

We are working hard to represent natural birth all over the internet. At the top of our new website are all of our social media buttons. From our growing Instagram account to the rocking land of Tumblr, come find us! Interact and stay up to date on all the happenings.


There is always lots going on with Birth Boot Camp all around the country. With instructor-led “Meet & Greets” to doula and instructor training, keep up with us via our new and constantly updated calendar on the right sidebar.

-Other updates to take note of include:

Updated FAQ page for the Education, Online Classes, and Birth Boot Camp DOULAS. Check out the Advisory Board page, Field Manual preview and much more.

Birth Boot Camp Statistics 2012-2013

Birth Boot Camp® childbirth classes strive to prepare couples for natural birth. In an effort to continually improve our curriculum and provide the absolute best education available, we seek feedback from our students.

Our instructors are required to compile statistics from their students. As a company, we spend many hours reaching out to our online students to find out how their births went and their thoughts on the class. We compile all of the information we receive and use it to make updates and improvements. Read more

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from Birth Boot Camp!

As we look back on 2012, we saw an exciting year of growth and have much to be grateful for.  Birth Boot Camp launched in March of 2012 under the direction of our founder, Donna Ryan, and our Advisory Board.  We started offering the first, full series of professionally filmed, streaming online childbirth education classes.  Our online and in-person classes have now been taken all over the country, and even in other countries.

In June, we did our first training for childbirth educators in Dallas, Texas.  We had a wonderful group of birth professionals that included a midwife, some doulas, a massage therapist and an amazing lactation consultant.  We had a great time and learned a lot.


This summer, Donna met with Gail Tully of Spinning Babies.  We are honored to have Gail’s Belly Mapping represented in our Field Manual (student workbook).





September brought another instructor training workshop and added teachers all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth area along with a few in Oklahoma.

Our company was featured on the Bring Birth Home website, the Australian based website Natural Childbirth World, and on Natural Parenting Tips .

We are so grateful for all the people who have reached out and helped us share the news of Birth Boot Camp with the world!

Another fabulous instructor training workshop was held in November. New instructors were sent all over the country; to Washington, Utah, Oregon, California, Oklahoma and more locations in Texas.  It was so much fun and incredibly flattering to see all those women put their faith in us and take the leap with Birth Boot Camp.

We have had over 150 students take our live and online classes in 2012 (21 different states and 6 countries!) and we know that 2013 will be even better!  Three instructor training workshops are scheduled and filling up quickly.

Thank you all who have been involved in this first fabulous year at Birth Boot Camp. We are honored to be a growing force for good in the birth world.  We look forward to serving you for many more years to come.
