Having been a midwife for 30 years I am passionate about women, their wellbeing and their families. I am also conscious that we are all affected by personal experiences, long held beliefs and other people’s expectations. I have seen how women can gain confidence and insight when making decisions that suit them.
The classes provided are in small groups (max 3 couples) or can be individual, for you, your partner and any support people. They are not only for first time parents but are suitable for those who have birthed before and would like to consider new ideas or options. The classes are independent and evidence based so there is no discussion on hospital or doctor preference and are suitable for women birthing in either a public or private hospital.

Karen runs these sessions at Tar Barrel, Mornington, monthly.
