~~The Class~~


Breathe to a Better Birth is a tried and tested, affordable and highly practical birthing class, backed by a powerful 45 minutes audio and manual download

It is open to all and not dependent on any faith or religion. It is welcomed by midwives, antenatal practitioners, yoga and NCT teachers and is complementary not exclusive

BBB is now being trained to Chelsea and Westminster Midwives and will soon be taught in the hospital

It fuses the best of hypnobirthing, meditation, mindfulness and breathing techniques to teach you to create a birth which is free of stress and remains calm and in control, whatever your personal  birth plan and eventual outcome

There are four stages in the class teaching.

Stage 1: Awareness

  • Of what you are feeling rather than thinking.
  • That other people’s stories are not yours.
  • That an open mind will focus on the potential for calm birthing not the failure
  • That your body is designed to give birth.
  • That birth hormones including endorphins will protect you
  • How birth is spiritual, meant to be, creative and wise!

Stage 2: Knowledge

  • Learn how the body is beautifully equipped for natural childbirth.
  • Learn how fear can cause us to create a stressful experience.
  • Learn that your state of mind is the key to a calm and natural birth.
  • Surrender to the wisdom of your body

Stage 3. The BBB Techniques/Meditation

  • Guides you to reach profound states of relaxation.
  • Shows you how to bondwith your unborn child with love and grace
  • Guides you to trustyour body to birth your baby and how to allow it

Stage 4. Movement and Breathing

  • Specific breathing techniquesfor all the physical stages of birth.

Happy Parent

“Karen’s class was completely transformative and after just 2 hours I left feeling more self-empowered than I had felt after doing an entire 4 week birthing course. My husband felt able to confidently support me through a natural, drug free delivery. Karen teaches powerful truths about birth, together with breathing and meditative techniques designed to alleviate fear and help the birthing process. I left feeling at peace, aware and capable and I looked forward to the birth. Daniel was born after just a 6 hour labour, at 3.5 kgs, with no pain relief and no tearing. I played Karen’s audio CD during the labour and found her voice helped keep me focused and calm. I recommend this work to all new mums I meet. Karen restores faith in childbirth as a beautiful life-affirming gift”
