We have completed both the Antenatal and Hypnobirthing classes with Karen and saying that they were incredible and have made us feel completely prepared for the birth of our baby doesn't seem enough! Karen is thorough, knowledgeable and has a wonderful teaching style and is happy to answer any questions that come up, even after the classes. Hypnobirthing is something that we weren't sure was for us but we wanted to add it to our birthing options, just in case, and we are so glad that we did as the techniques are completely achievable and we are confident that they will assist us when the big day comes along. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for either antenatal or hypnobirthing classes!

Karen's teaching methods made me feel very confident and calm before my labour. I felt completely prepared for anything that would happen. Her ongoing support after my daughter's birth and the people she has been able to put me in contact with has been invaluable! I would highly recommend any pregnant Mummas book it to Karen's classes.

After struggling to find a class that could accommodate my husbands working hours Karen was recommended to us by our obstetrician. We completed a one day private class in the comfort of Karen's home where she made us feel welcomed and relaxed. She was able to share/teach her knowledge without overwhelming us or feeling intimidated by the upcoming birth of our first child. We left feeling confident and supported. When I went into labor I used the knowledge that Karen had passed on and her confidence that I could have the natural birth I wished for. After a quick and calm labor we welcomed our baby boy into the world ready to use our newly found skills learned from Karen. I recommend Karen to any expecting parents!

My husband and I attended Karen’s hypnobirthing classes. These classes were amazing! Karen’s calming, positive and empowering nature completely put my husband and I at ease for the big day. The techniques and knowledge Karen provided us with were invaluable. We are now so excited for our baby’s birthing day! Being a midwife I thought I knew it all! But Karen has provided me with invaluable tools, techniques and knowledge that will allow my baby’s birthing day to be even more special than I ever could have imagined it. Thank you so much Karen for all you have taught us!

Karen is a wealth of knowledge and a fantastic teacher. Both my husband and I are first time parents and were unsure of how the birth would go, however Karen was able to make us both feel empowered and in control. Hypnobirthing not only put me in the right frame often for birth, but it also gave my husband a specific role to play on the day and he knew exactly what I needed at each step. The affirmation tracks, the water therapy and light touch massage were all amazing on the day. I’m happy to say the resources helped me in the later stages of pregnancy, during labour and now as a mum of a happy and calm little baby girl. If you’re feeling anxious about the birth process, you need to give this lady a call. I would 100% recommend Karen <3

My husband and I did the one day antenatal class with Karen at her lovely house by the water on Lake Macquarie with one other couple. Being a small group it was enjoyable. The class was perfect we learnt so much and Karen is simply the best person in Newcastle with all her experience for antenatal care. Oh and her morning tea she provides is so yummy too!!! She really has a beautiful heart and is so passionate about what she does. Thank you so much and we are looking forward to our hypnobirthing class with you in a couple of weeks! Xo Highly reccomend!!!!!

My partner and I attended Karen's two day hypnobirth course at her home which is a very clam and comfortable environment. There was also another couple in our class but it made no difference to our experience. Karen made us feel as if we had known her for years, she has so much knowledge and is such a positive person. I can't recommend her class enough. Since attending her class in June I have since gone back to see her personally for a one on one to discuss with her any fears I had since I am so close to my due date now I found I just wanted to go over everything and have that extra reassurance. After attending Karen's class and feeling well educated I am confident and can not wait to have a beautiful hypnobirth in a few weeks. Thank you Karen for giving us the guidance and knowledge for a positive hypnobirth xx

we had such a great experience with Karen last week at our private hypnobirthing class. We are getting ready for our second baby to join us. Learning techniques to bring our baby into this world in a much carmer way using breathing techniques, visualizations, music, smells and touch is such a relaxing way to prepare for the labour. Karen was able to taylour the program our specific needs and concerns. looking forward to the big day more than ever now.

My partner and I moved to Newcastle from Queensland 5weeks prior to baby's due date. Missing out on the hospital prenatal class, Karen was able to take us on short notice. Right from the first phone call and through out the education day, Karen put us at ease and explained everything clearly, with lots of passion and enthusiasm. The day was fun informative and made us feel confident about the options available to us in managing the labor process and what to expect afterwards. We are so glad we had the opportunity to meet Karen and experience her service and support.
