Registered Midwife, Childbirth Educator

Karen Carson

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Having a baby is a major life event and I believe that with the right support and education women can be empowered to make informed decisions and acquire skills to create an enriching experience for themselves. The childbirth journey is a partnership between woman and midwife, negotiating the options and working towards a positive start to parenting.

My goal is to empower women to have confidence in their bodies that they can birth their baby; support fathers to feel confident and useful during the birth and those early days of parenting. I strongly believe that aftercare is important and that my role is to help and support women with breastfeeding and mothercraft in the early weeks.

I am married with three beautiful adult children and my dog Molly. I take a small caseload of 3-5 women per month which allows me to give the personal service that my clients appreciate and to have time with my own family. When I’m not working I enjoy the beach, family time, walking, reading and yoga.
