Online Childbirth and Pregnancy Support


If you’re pregnant you might be feeling a mix of excitement and nervousness with a thousand questions flashing through your mind. There’s so much that is new and strange, and so much information online that it can all feel a bit overwhelming. I know that you want the BEST for you and your baby, and I am here to help you get it. 

I am very blessed to have created a life where I am able to do what I love working online and in person with women around the world during pregnancy and birth. As the Virtual Midwife, time and distance are irrelevant. I have taken my experience and the many lessons I learned in the labor room and packaged it into easy to understand courses and packages to make sure that you get THE VERY BEST CARE when you need it and how you need it. 

Being virtual is the most simple and effective way of connecting with you. 

What are your worried about?

What do you wish you had asked your doctor at your last appointment?

Who do you ask for advice about diet, exercise and birth preparation?  

3 ways to work with me. Which one suits you?

10 Day Birth Plan


This course is for you if you want it short and to the point by focusing on the 10 essential elements of birth preparation. Every day for 10 days you will receive an email with a guided video lesson and exercises for you to share in the private group.  I provide additional coaching and feedback daily in the group, and by the end of 10 days you will have a realistic, powerful birth plan. Courses run every 6 weeks and groups are limited to 25 so that I am able to give you the attention you need.  This course is comprehensive, fun, highly interactive and will give you a clear sense of what you want and how to get it. 

Ultimate Online Birth Course

This course is for you if you want to work at your own pace and get the benefit of a sequential journey of deep birth preparation created from my wealth of experience of working in the labor room. It includes information about diet, exercise, doctors visits, routine examinations, body changes, birth preparation, partner support, communication with hospital staff and proven labor techniques. The course consists of 6 modules with video, audio and ebook content plus unlimited access to the library of cheat sheets, checklists and prenatal yoga videos that will guide you every step of the way to a have a safe and gentle birth. This is a holistic approach that includes physical, mental and emotional preparation for motherhood, not just birth.

This is a highly personalised package. Together we will co-create a beautiful, positive pregnancy and birth experience. 

The Virtual Midwife … at a glance


My mother was a midwife and also my first and greatest teacher. She taught me that birth was natural, normal and incredibly beautiful.
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.

I love to travel and I am blessed that my work takes me around the world supporting women online and in person

Favourite things include yoga, sailing, singing and cheese and tomato sandwiches.

My ‘first birth’ was actually a cow. I was 8 years old and from that moment I was hooked on birth!

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.

Birth Doula, UK

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.

Lindsay Lane Ward Hoffman

Yoga Teacher and Doula, USA

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.

I never believed that birth could be so beautiful.

I thought it was just a class about birth, but for me, it was life changing.
