Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals
Karen is a Calmbirth® Educator, counsellor, mindset coach with many years experience in nursing and midwifery, studying different modalities which support a couple and pregnant person through their/her journey.
As a trained practitioner she has studied the amazing dynamics of the body and the powerful mind-body connection.
Karen’s other expertise is as a trained therapist in Resource Therapy (RT), The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP) Private Subconscious Mind Healing (PSH) and Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT), all selected to work gently and powerfully with the subconscious mind and assist the amazing healing resources that exist within to help a person move from a state of fear, anxiety, distress and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) into a place of calm and safety, trusting in themselves and their journey.
Karen is passionate about pregnancy, birthing and empowering women and their bodies, naturally created for birth. She is blessed to be the mother of three beautiful women and grandmother to eight and has been honoured to be present at all their births at home and in hospital, following their Calmbirth experiences with Karen.
For her, the greatest pleasure is seeing Calmbirth couples move from a state of anxiety and fear to feeling confident and excited about birth and parenting, by enabling them to discover what amazing resources they have within.
Karen has worked as a team midwife in regional Victoria and now prepares couples for their pregnancy and birth experience. She believes given the knowledge and tools that Calmbirth offers, couples can go on to have a positive birth experience however that experience unfolds.
Private and group Calmbirth retreats are being offered along with Refresher courses for those who have attended a Calmbirth course previously.
Feel free to contact Karen to discuss your specific needs and requirements and I know she looks forward to meeting you and helping create your Calmbirth experience.
