The gold standard in personalised care

How it works

Your primary care provider will be your OB/GYN. I am here to fill in the gaps. You will only see your OB/GYN an average of 10 times during your pregnancy and as good as he/she is they will not be able to answer all your questions, share essential pregnancy information or teach you and your partner birth preparation skills. That’s what I do. I become your trusted “go to” person and I create a package based upon your individual needs which could include any or all of the following:

 

✅ 3 – 12 months of virtual support throughout your pregnancy. 

✅ Unlimited Whatsapp/email support (commonly used before/after consultations or whenever you have a question/concern/strange sensation to get the right answer immediately or a referral if necessary – basically anything to keep you away from Google overwhelm) 

✅ Scheduled 1:1 video calls for intensive birth preparation and planning. 

✅ Personal online folder for relevant curated content plus all  course content which I work through with you and your partner.   

✅ Consultation with Nutritionist to create a healthy eating/breastfeeding plan.

✅ Consultation with Maternity Nurse to advise on baby inventory (equipment, gadgets etc).

✅ Breastfeeding support in the first 6 weeks after your baby is born.

✅ Sleep consultation to establish healthy sleeping habits and understand newborn sleep patterns.

✅ Referral to other professionals as and when needed. 

Why it works 

 
1️⃣ It’s hard to stay afraid when you know you are getting the right advice. I am here for you and your partner everyday, all day to answer questions, guide your choices and keep you on track. 
 
2️⃣ It’s not a once off class with 9 months of information packed into 2 days. Your birth preparation starts immediately and continues until the day you go into labor. I have a wealth of information and experience and I share it in a way that works for you and your partner.  
 
3️⃣ It does not stop the moment your baby is born. In fact, that is when things really ramp up as I guide you daily through the highs and lows of bringing your baby home.
 

Holly contacted me when she was 13 weeks pregnant and I supported her throughout her pregnancy, birth and the first 3 months with her new baby boy. 

Your own pregnancy coach

I was apprehensive about giving birth abroad as I viewed birth as a scary process but working with Karen completely changed my view.

I had a wonderful birth and I thank Karen for my positive experience. She armed me with the confidence and information to be in control of my experience. It was by no means the traumatic experience I had imagined and I was able to bond with my baby straight away after a great birth experience.

With Karen’s guidance and patience, I was able to navigate my way through the early days of motherhood and have gained so much confidence and knowledge. Her help has truly been invaluable and I felt so well supported after my nine month package that I extended it to receive more support, which has been so unbelievably helpful.

I think every mum needs a Karen!

This is not for you if:

  • You want the quick fix (I recommend the Midwife Guide to a Hospital Birth as it will give you everything you need in a short space of time)
  • You prefer to wing it and hope for the best and would rather  spend that money on a stroller and cute baby clothes.

 

Pregnancy coaching

 

This is for you if:

✅ You invest in your personal health and wellbeing and bring in the experts to make sure you get the best. 

You love the idea of having a personal midwife available to support you 24/7. 

 Your friends and family are supportive but their ideas are different to your own. You want to explore your options in a safe and non judgemental space to find what works for you. 

✅ You are ready to dive deep into this amazing life journey!

 

You get more than midwife care with this package. I believe in a holistic approach and I have brought together a team of experts to cover all bases. Along with me (midwife, prenatal yoga, hypnobirthing and childbirth instructor) I have a nutritionist/dietician, a sleep consultant, a breastfeeding consultant and a doula on my team. 

Having a baby changes your life, your body, your relationship and your world view.

I help YOU NAVIGATE THOSE CHANGES with ease and joy. 

Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.

 Mel’s story

I cannot recommend Karen enough. I was so afraid of the pain, but she gave me so much courage and confidence and I just loved my birth!  I know that sounds crazy and you don’t hear many women say that, but for me it was true.

The hardest part was after my baby was born and I would definitely have given up on breastfeeding if it were not for the 24/7 support and reassurance that I got from Karen.

For that I will be forever grateful.
