A new way of preparing for birth

Premium Member Benefit

How it will help you get the birth you desire

Well you don’t need to wait until you’re a certain number of weeks to join. In fact, we actively encourage you to join the moment you get a positive pregnancy test. That’s when you have the most questions and that’s exactly when your birth preparation starts. By joining the Due Date Club comunity you can get started immediately at a fraction of the cost. 

Why is this course and being a member so effective?

Because it’s a fully comprehensive course that includes hypnobirthing – even if you’re planning or need a c/section.

  • The MP3s  include guided meditations, positive affirmations and breathing practice for regular listening and a guideline for when and how to use them effectively. 
  • The “must know” guides are available to download and print as an easy to use pack of postcard size cards. 
  • You will have access to the group activity feed for ongoing support, inspiration and feedback  plus monthly live Q and A sessions with Karen and a host of guest birth professionals.
