Drawn to nature and animals from an early age, Karin followed an eclectic career path. She began with Forestry, then teaching, and now a landscaping business. Writing has been a keen endeavour throughout: magazine articles, a textbook, and a book—Menopause Before 40 (2004). Her interest in childbirth began with the birth of her first child. She believes that any debate about childbirth should not be about drug-free or drugs, but about health, dignity and safety. With this book, Inspiring Births With A Midwife, she wants to create a greater awareness of options. Every parent should be encouraged to make the most of these significant experiences, not just for their own peace of mind but also for the emotional and physical health of themselves and their family.
