Who is Karen?

Karen H. Strange has been a Certified Professional Midwife and an American Academy of Pediatrics/Neonatal Resuscitation Program instructor since 1991.

She is founder of the "Integrative Resuscitation of the Newborn" workshop, which includes the physiology of newborn transition, the evidence-based studies having to do with neonatal resuscitation, and the “when, why and how” to do neonatal resuscitation in a non-traumatizing way.

She incorporates the baby's experience of birth and tools for healing when things do not go as planned. She has taught over 8,000 people worldwide.

What makes Karen's workshop different?

Karen’s workshop covers the traditional AAP/NRP course of completion material, while incorporating published research regarding neonatal resuscitation.

She articulates a broader understanding of how to think about resuscitating a newborn, explaining the resuscitation process with clarity and thoroughness. Karen illustrates how babies clear the fluid from their lungs in the birth process and what to do when there is a problem.

The workshop demonstrates the inherent wisdom embedded in birth; physically, psychologically and emotionally. Karen shares her “Simple Tools” for helping babies when things do not go as planned.
