I really feel so much more at peace with the idea of birth and am confident that I will be able to achieve a calm birth no matter what the circumstances. Karen’s passion and wisdom about birth is unparalleled and she taught the material in a way that really got through to us in the best possible way.
The course itself was more informative then I ever imagined. Karen delivered the information in such a loving environment that made both myself and partner comfortable. We have learnt so much and feel ready for the birth of our daughter.
We are so grateful to Karen and Calmbirth, your calm voice was in my head the whole time, and you gave Ads the advice he needed to be a superstar support dad.
