We completed the positive birthing course with Karmaura, and I am so glad we did! Alana is an amazing mentor, who is very passionate about what she teaches. Her genuine and caring nature really shines bright when she is facilitating this course. The birth of my son was one of the most empowering experiences of my life. I am so grateful to Alana for giving my partner and I the tools to help create the amazing homebirth that I had envisioned. Karmaura’s teachings are broad – from anatomy and the physiology of optimal positioning, prenatal activities, relaxation exercises, through to practical techniques for use during labour, as well as nurturing the fourth trimester. I felt well informed and prepared for our journey. It is so important for the birth partner/s to be involved. This course is perfect for the partner to learn how they can support through pregnancy and actively assist during labour and birthing. They will feel confident to take on the role of being ‘the gatekeeper’. Woman are in such a vulnerable state during labour; I was able to stay focused and ‘in the zone’ knowing my gatekeeper was watching over and taking care of things. If there is one prenatal class you’re considering taking – let this be it! I highly recommend Karmaura for your positive birthing preparations.
