Hello there! I am Karen.

How can I help you? 



It might seem crazy that I can be a VIRTUAL midwife but when you want information you go online right? 

So I want to make sure that you get the RIGHT information at the RIGHT time. It’s a scary place if you don’t know what you’re looking for and making sure you get what you need is what I do best.  

How Karen helped me

Karen taught me about “holding space” before I even knew it was a thing. The lessons I learned from her altered the course of my life. My pregnancy and birth experience was so amazing that it inspired me to become a doula.

Karen was not only with me for both of my pregnancies and births, she was also my mentor during my doula studies. She taught me the value of honoring every woman’s experience.

Throughout my wife’s pregnancies I often felt overlooked and rather like a spare wheel. Karen was the only person to make me feel entitled to share and take part in the birth experience. For that I will always be immensely grateful.

Question: I’ve never worked with a Virtual Midwife before. What’s the first step?
Answer: Firstly, I work with ‘first-timers’ all the time so there’s nothing at all to be worried about.

Let me step you through the journey. It usually starts with an email enquiry or a Tell Me More call where I answer your immediate questions, find out what support structures you already have in place including
- Location (I work with couples around the world)
- Birth team and Care Provider (Gyn, Midwife.Doula etc)
- Facilities available (hospital, home, birth center)

I also get a full medical and obstetric history and discuss your birth preferences in detail so that I can help you map the way forward and plan the next steps.

Most couples choose to have twice monthly calls plus 24/7 WhatsApp support which allows for a high level of information sharing, relationship building and enough time in-between to work through the online, on demand resources.

We schedule the calls around routine appointments with your doctor, so that you arrive feeling prepared with relevant questions and generally have another call afterward to debrief and unpack what came up.

This is a monthly subscription package that can be cancelled at any time although most couples extend it to get the much needed support during the first 6 weeks at home with your baby.
