I have been a midwife for 30 years. 10 years ago I left the hospital system to focus on creating a way to support women during pregnancy in order to have the birth I KNOW is possible with the right information and preparation.

I studied prenatal yoga RYT 200, Hypnobirthing the Mongan method, the Mama Bamba way with Robyn Sheldon, Spinning babies with Gail Tully and Active birth with Janet Balaskas.

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.
