A Bit About Me

As a recipient of the esteemed National Nursery Examination Board Gold Standard Childcare qualification, I proudly hold the title of a highly skilled and knowledgeable Infant Specialist Maternity Nurse. 

Since 1991, my professional journey has encompassed a diverse range of pivotal roles, providing invaluable expertise and care to children from the moment of their birth. These engagements have transpired within the esteemed confines of hospital maternity wards, esteemed private households, as well as esteemed local authority and private nurseries.

My reach extends far beyond the borders of the United Kingdom, as I actively engage in my profession throughout the vast expanse of Europe, the Middle East and Australasia. 

Committed to perpetual growth and advancement, I actively partake in a vibrant international network comprising distinguished childcare and education specialists.

The collective weight of my exceptional qualifications and extensive experience has positioned me as an esteemed figure among the realm of maternity nurses, both within the United Kingdom and on a global scale. I have earned the unwavering trust and patronage of high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, who recognise and appreciate the exceptional level of care and expertise I provide. In return for my gold standard infant care I am one of the most highly compensated maternity nurses in the United Kingdom and internationally.


I possess a multinational background and benefit from visa-free travel privileges in the UK and Australia, with pending approval in the EU.

What Clients Say

I was introduce to Karen by a friend as I was having feeding difficulties with my son, suffering from sleep deprivation and

bonding. Karen checked us both over and took the time to listen to my concerns. She diagnosed that I had a blocked milk duct that was confirmed by my GP. She prepared a routine and bonding plan and gave helpful suggestions on coping with an older child and a baby with a husband that works away a lot. I can report that Karen’s advice helped me settle into my new role being a mother of two children with a large age gap.
