Breathe To A Better Birth



  • “Karen is a rare breed – sensitive, compassionate and a great teacher. She helped me immensely with my 3rd birth experience.”

    Christina Tyson

  • “I came to your class twice for my first baby. I benefited from it so much so that baby Isla came naturally within 20 hours of leaving the class. I felt able to just let go. I’m now on my 2nd BBB baby.”

    Bella Gomez

  • “My second child was conceived at the age of 50 and I needed support, as my first birth was traumatic. I attended Karen’s meditation and breathe classes leading up to the birth and listened to her audio cd in the labour ward. Jagadamba attended me as a doula and pregnancy yoga teacher. Her knowledge as a birth professional and as a Breathe to a Better Birth teacher was instrumental in helping me to have a natural delivery. Whilst there were challenges at transition, the ability to calm my fears and to breathe, relax and trust was essential. I was delighted that I experienced natural delivery and had times of real peace and surrender.”


  • “In the end instance my birth was not completely what I hoped for, but this class made me 100% confident that I had prepared well and could agree with the choices made. I never felt out of control. This was a gift for me. I remain open-minded about my next one.”


  • “Just over 3 years ago you kindly came to my house in London W14  for a one on one session ahead of the birth of our daughter Fleur. I had been unable to make your classes and you gave me your undivided attention for a couple of hours which proved incredibly helpful. I have sent many friends and colleagues to you since, and shared with others the CD you left with me.”

    Deborah Turness

  • “I had a wonderful water birth for Abigail. I distinctly remembered your words about sending love to the baby which I did during the peak of the intensity (only 14 minutes second stage) and this really helped me with the emotional side. I was emotionally much more ready to welcome my baby than in my first labour thanks to this. I sort of heard your voice at that point and earlier on with helping to dilate the cervix.

    I was really pleased with my labour, definitely a positive experience and I managed without any pain relief. Did tear a bit but did not feel it and it was not tender afterwards… It was all so much calmer than my first labour.”


  • “Breathe to a Better Birth is transformational. I have birthed 3 big boys at home using this method in less than 6 hours between them! It completely makes sense and builds trust and acceptance that a calm birth is meant to be and is achievable. Karen is a highly sensitive and empathetic teacher who understands the challenges of juggling childbirth with modern life. I am delighted to be a teacher of this wonderful class.”

    Eleni Jones

  • “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”

    Jane Potteiger

  • “I was so anxious about my 3rd birth as the previous 2 had been fraught with problems, but you taught me how to deal with fear, relax and control anxiety. I can’t thank you enough as you restored my faith and experience of natural birth. I am so grateful and so happy”
