Owner and Founder of Transitionings™: Prenatal & Postpartum Wellness, Karen is a DONA-certified birth & postnatal Doula, certified Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® practitioner, and creator of The McWilliam Method™ childbirth prep classes. She is a certified prenatal yoga teacher, trainer, breastfeeding educator and sleep educator. Karen offers private, group, and virtual birth prep classes as well as in-person and virtual doula support. Karen is also the founder of The McWilliam Method™ childbirth preparation series which is not concerned with students retaining or memorizing information regarding how you “must” or “should” give birth. Instead, this childbirth preparation class is concerned with teaching you how to “unlearn”. Karen is also the founder of the “Life With Baby™” course designed to help families prepare for the myriad of changes that come with a new baby. All of Karen’s offerings are richly steeped in a wisdom born from 17+ years of nurturing and empowering families during this exciting and transformative time.
