MEET DONNA RYAN
Founder & CEO, Birth Boot Camp, Inc.
I have taught childbirth classes since 2003, founded Birth Boot Camp in 2012, helped to start 3 different birth networks, and served on the BirthNetwork National Board. I am obviously passionate about birth! For years I've said that birth serves as a bridge between pregnancy and becoming a parent, to each and every child. With four children myself, I have experienced birth with an epidural and OB, as well as a natural hospital birth, followed by a home water birth, and finally, a home "land" birth. I am excited to help you prepare for your own amazing birth!
My husband and I have LOVED our time here in the Black Hills. It's with mixed feelings that I am announcing our move to Lubbock, TX so my husband can pursue a PhD in Accounting beginning Fall 2019.
Approximately 2 dozen couples have taken Birth Boot Camp classes since I've taught classes in the Black Hills over the last 2 years. I'd love to "pass the torch" on to another instructor, so if you are interested in becoming a Birth Boot Camp Instructor, let's get together so I can explain what is involved. It's the best job ever!

My husband and I really enjoyed our Birth Boot Camp Class with Donna! She did a great job of presenting information and leaving it up to the couples to decide what is best for them. She even brought up topics that I wouldn't have even thought to research on my own! I feel so well prepared and confident to take ownership of my own birth story now! - Taylor
Birth Boot Camp is not only worth your time but certainly worth the investment. This has been the most informative class for my husband and I. We truly feel equipped for labor and delivery, and taking care of an infant afterwards. Donna is a wonderful resource on all things pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She never makes any participant feel uncomfortable to ask their questions and she is the go-to gal if you have a question you never thought you’d ask out loud! - Paige
Donna recently taught the Comfort Measures Workshop to my husband and I in preparation for our third kiddo. Donna was extremely professional in the way that she presented the material while also providing an open and comfortable atmosphere to walk through the different steps in preparing for baby. A note from my husband, "I was extremely skeptical about going "all natural" for baby number 3 after having seen Ashley get an epidural for the first 2. However, after listening to Donna and having her explain and coach me through a lot of the steps in preparing for baby I feel more prepared to help my bride along the way. Thank you!" My husband and I would both highly recommend working with Donna and her team. Again thank you Donna for working with us and we look forward to sharing with you about our next birthing experience! - Ashley
We have had a great time at class! Learned a lot and had a lot of fun as well! Would highly recommend the course for anyone who is looking to learn more about birth and the different options that are available. - Zach
My husband and I did the Birth Reboot course with Donna in preparation of the birth of our second child. It was wonderful! We were able to talk about hopes and fears about this birth that likely we would not have discussed without her guiding the discussion. Also, we were able to work through some great comfort measures, so that I feel more empowered and able to have a great delivery! My husband also has a great deal more confidence in being able to guide and help me through this delivery. We are so thankful! Definitely recommend this for second time (or more) pregnancies! - Katherine
