Karen’s pregnancy yoga is the perfect way to enjoy pregnancy & prepare for birth. Her yoga classes not only help you stretch out & feel good in your body, they are interspersed with so much of her knowledge & wisdom regarding our bodies & the birthing process.

I started coming to Karen’s prenatal classes when I was pregnant with my second daughter. Karen’s classes and her beautiful home gave me a much needed opportunity for me to wind down and have some me time. I walked away feeling physically great but more than that all the wisdom and birth education she shared each class gave me a sense of excitement and confidence about going into my next birth. My husband and I also went to a partner preparation workshop with Karen and it was such a beautiful opportunity for us to bond and prepare for our next arrival. She also created a really safe space for my husband to talk about fears and feelings he had about our first birth that he had never spoken to me about before.

I was also so lucky to have Karen as my doula and I will never forget the warmth and love she brought to our birth and after. Karen’s classes are so much more than just moving the body.. she is giving women the confidence and knowledge to trust in their bodies for birth. Karen is kind, nurturing and just a beautiful human. I wish every pregnant woman had access to Karen’s beautiful classes

Pregnancy Yoga

Absolutely outstanding prenatal yoga experience – every class was infused with empowering education on labour, birthing and beyond. Also a wonderful way to connect with other mums to be.  My only wish was that I’d started earlier in my pregnancy to soak up more time in this space.

We welcomed our baby girl Aspen on Friday. She’s been a dream to get to know, and we feel extremely blessed she chose us. I can’t wait for you to meet her when we resurface. SCUH were amazing and I felt completely supported, respected and empowered the entire time. They really respected my birth preferences and we were able to enjoy baby breast crawl and loads of skin to skin afterward. Bliss!

I just had my second little bub 3 months ago and I can honestly say that thanks to Karen and all her knowledge and calming strategies, I had a second perfect birth experience. Completely different to my first, but perfect all the same.

I too felt my second birth wouldn’t live up to the euphoria of my first. Totally different experience second time around but still amazing and wouldn’t change a thing.

Birthing Together Class for Couples

Thank you for the afternoon, we had such a great time with you!

It has really helped us to understand what exactly happens during labour and birth and why it happens. You completely took my fear of giving birth and made me understand what we both  can do to enhance or disrupt this process and that giving birth is a beautiful thing and nothing to be scared of 🙂

Carl feels a lot more connected and understands how important (and simple) his involvement is/can be.  We got so much confidence out of this class and are really excited to soon go through this unique experience together. Your openness and passion about it made this afternoon such a wonderful and most helpful experience. Even though we have a pretty open and honest relationship, I think just having you there to talk to us and ask us some questions has helped us to understand each other better and connect even more.

We all got home yesterday afternoon and are all well, over the moon and completely in love. Just wanted to share the news and thank you eternally as I would not have made it through the contractions the way I did if it wasn’t for the breathing and meditation techniques that I learned from you!

Arthur’s birth was incredible.   Bess was like a goddess.  She moved through labour like a mermaid swimming through the water, so much grace and purpose.  Faster, smoother and dare I say less intense for her.  We laughed after the birth, thinking back about how we couldn’t comprehend this birth being better as Adeline’s was so magical, but it was better.
