Karen provides a number of birth and parenting preparation options to help ready yourself for labour, birth and the early postnatal period. Each of Karen’s classes are designed to give you hands-on, practical tools, techniques, and information to nurture you through your journey. Whether you have the time to invest in a completely comprehensive birth preparation class designed by Karen: The McWilliam Method™, or a 6-hour condensed Birthing in Awareness™ class, full HypnoBirthing® series, or Life With Baby™ parenting prep class, you will come away feeling more prepared and excited for what is heading your way!

The McWilliam Method

The McWilliam Method™ focuses on techniques that assist the birthing person (and the birth partner) to engage trust in the birth process and the birthing person’s body. Letting go of old and un-serving beliefs invites a compassionate, connected, empowered, and sacred birth; regardless of how that birth unfolds. 

Life With Baby

This project is for couples in their 3rd trimester. Often the majority of our energy and focus during pregnancy, especially during the 3rd trimester, is focused on birthing. But what happens after the baby comes home? The journey continues…


HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive childbirth preparation course designed to prepare you for the birth of your child. You will learn relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques aimed to eliminate the fears and tensions that contribute to long and painful labours, replacing your experience with confidence, calm, and comfort.

Birthing in Awareness (currently on hold)

Birthing in Awareness honours the journey of birth and parenthood through interactive discussion and practical techniques. It is an opportunity for parents to explore breath awareness, presence and trust in preparation for their birthing, coping techniques and easing the transition into parenthood.
