Who Is The Virtual Midwife?
The Virtual Midwife is for you if…
My life has been building towards the point of becoming ‘the virtual midwife’ ever since I was born. I grew up in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, in a busy household where my mother was a midwife and my early years were full of her stories of brave women and incredible births. Even back then the idea of birth filled me with awe, and the desire to nurture and treasure new life became embedded in my soul.
What makes the Virtual Midwife program so special?
All the information in the world means nothing if you don’t have anyone to help you put it all in perspective. Besides, you want someone to TALK to, to ASK questions and most of all you want to be HEARD. That’s what I do. I listen and I use my experience and expertise to guide you to the correct resources, regardless of where you are in the world.
You know it is important it is to be relaxed during labor but how do you achieve that? There are 5 KEY PRINCIPLES that go beyond the basic facts that you need to understand in order for everything else to make sense. This program provides information with a PURPOSE and actionable steps to get you to a place of deep understanding and trust.
Do you remember finding out about your pregnancy and all of a sudden noticing every other pregnant women around you? It’s weird, it’s exciting and it’s a little bit scary.This is a community of likeminded women. This is where you belong. This is YOUR space to share, learn, laugh and play and I am with you every step of the way.

A Sneak Peak at the Last 20 Years
Every birth I have attended has changed me on some level and taught me something about the incredible wisdom of women and babies.
I promote a holistic approach to birth which includes yoga and powerful breathing techniques. We can not separate body, mind and breath.
I believe in safe and gentle birth for ALL women. I host workshops and retreats around the world to raise awareness of the importance of safe & gentle birth and how to achieve it.
Karen helped me to understand the non-necessity of modern medical interventions and when and how to say ‘no’

Reasons to Love Online Birth Preparation
Statistics (and personal experience) show improved birth outcomes and increased overall satisfaction with the birth experience when couples are prepared and educated about what to expect. This is especially true for expats who are already in foreign circumstances.
Even the most loving & supportive husbands sometimes don’t see the point of going to a class to “learn to breathe.” With online classes you don’t even need to leave the house! All you need is a good wifi connection and a comfy chair and you are good to go.
No more endless searching that results in at least 5 conflicting responses and more questions than answers. Everything you need to know is in this course. All your questions will be answered PLUS you will have access to your private online community café and live interaction with the Virtual Midwife.
