This is for you if you are pregnant outside of your home country.

While nothing about your pregnancy will be different, everything else feels completely foreign. Choosing the right care provider, knowing when and where to get the right tests and deciding where to give birth seem like impossible tasks. 

I can help you. I am an expat midwife and I work exclusively with pregnant expats. I will guide you to the right resources and be your sounding board so you can flourish during pregnancy rather than take the first plane home!

 

 Hello there! I am Karen.

How can I help you? 

 

 

 

 

 

✅ I wrote a book just for you! No more random online searches and horrific birth stories – just straight up expert medical advice and curated content.

✅ No chance of missing important tests or investigations with tick lists, cheat sheets and your own personalised care plan.   

✅ The knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and communicate them effectively with your OB/GYN. 

✅ Get the lowdown on pain management techniques and the confidence to know when you need them.

 

I have been a midwife for 30 years.  I spent 14 years working as an expat in the Middle East and it opened me up to finding innovative ways to support women within a system that supports policy. 

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.

 

Breathing is your single most powerful tool during labor. This kit will teach you breath awareness (journal exercises) plus the 5 essential techniques to stay calm, centered and focused. It comes with a downloadable app so that you can start practising immediately. 

 

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.

Posted @withregram • @lactationsolutionsofprinceton What a wonderful depiction for normal infant feeding by @breastfeeding.dietitian. If your baby feeds often, you are comfortable and your baby has good milk intake - this pattern is so likely to be super normal! Have a lactation checkup if you have any concerns! #ibclc #lactation #evidencebased #humanmilk #biologicalnorm #lactationcheckup #4thtrimester. Posted @withregram • @breastfeeding.dietitian FEEDING ON DEMAND. Yep. I used cereal and blueberries to see the difference between expectations and reality of many breastfeeding moms. .

We’re you told your baby should breastfeed every 2-3 hours? I was. Did you know that only came from figuring out how often feeding was needed for a baby to feed 8-12 times in a 24 hour period...
.
.
So yes we APPROXIMATELY would like babies to feed AT LEAST 8-12 times, but the way it all plays out in a 24 hour period is very different for each baby.
.
.
Reality: babies feed like the blueberries. Lots of feedings. Some small. Some big. Some close together. Some far apart. .
.
Babies do not feed like clockwork where every cereal (ahem.. feed) is spaced equally apart and the same size. You can relax if your otherwise healthy baby goes longer than 3 hours between a feed. You don’t need to think “you can’t still be hungry” and delay a feed if they are showing signs they want to feed earlier than 2 hours.
.
.
Listen to your baby. Trust your instincts. Let go of the cookie cutter “ideal” and develop your own relationship that works for you and your baby. .
.
Do you feed on demand? What works for you and your baby?
