Virtual Midwife Chat Room

Every Friday at 11am Gulf Standard Time I host the Virtual Midwife Chat Room, because all the information in the world means nothing if you don’t have anyone to help you put it all in perspective. Your first session is free, so you can meet me and see how it works. Love it and join so you can get peace of mind throughout your pregnancy. 

10 Day Birth Plan

Every day for 10 days you will receive a guided lesson with video, audio and the topic of the day. I provide additional coaching and feedback daily in the private Facebook group. Groups are limited to 25 so that I am able to give you the attention you need and courses run every 6 weeks. Sign up to be added to the waitlist. 

6 week online course

This  comprehensive course can be started at any time and completed at your own pace.  The course consists of 6 modules with video, audio and ebook content plus unlimited access to the library of cheat sheets and checklists. You will have lifetime membership in the private group for live coaching and ongoing support with me. 

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.

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.

With her holistic approach, Karen helped me experience childbirth as it is meant to be – natural.
