What People Are Saying

"We can't thank Karen enough for her thoughtful and informative approach to childbirth education. Since I'm a pediatrician and my husband is an anesthesiologist, we almost didn't take a childbirth class at all. Luckily, we ended up signing up for Karen's class, because we learned so much more than we ever thought we would. We especially thought her techniques for coping with contractions were amazing as well as her stellar pushing strategy! We were able to successfully deliver our son Declan after just 17 minutes  of effective strong pushing  thanks to Karen! She is an outstanding teacher and we would highly recommend her classes to anyone."
