Education & support for pregnancy, birth & beyond

For the mama who is ready to know her worth, discover her voice and have the confidence to use it.

We’re told that birth and motherhood should be some of the most joyous times of our lives.

That yes, there might be some harder moments but we ‘should love every minute of it’.

And it seems like that’s just the start of the advice and opinions. From the moment you announce your pregnancy, it seems like everyone has an opinion. Induce or don’t induce, vaginal or caesarean, breastfeed or formula, go back to work or stay at home…..  

You want to speak up – to do birth and motherhood on your own terms. You want to have choices. You want to be seen, heard and valued. You want to do things differently.

Imagine if….

You could speak up to your care providers and give birth on your own terms?

You felt like you could use your voice to say how you feel – without the yelling and the guilt?

You could start to value yourself again now that you are a mother?

I’m Kate Vivian

A mama  to three beautiful girls. My first birth and the transition into motherhood was an experience that left me reeling. Feeling like I was invisible, that I didn’t matter. That I had lost who I was.

Pregnant with my second baby, I knew there had to be a different way. A different way to do my birth.  A different way to approach my experience of motherhood.

This journey was the birth of me.  I’ve learnt how to speak up. To be seen, heard and valued for who I am. To trust myself and my instincts.

I’ve taken the pain of a traumatic birth and the feeling of being invisible and turned it into my power.

And now I’m here to support you to do the same

As Featured In:

My journey into motherhood taught me that it’s ok to choose differently.

For the past 5 years, I’ve supported women to redesign their experience of birth and their daily experience of motherhood.  From the mama who spoke up when she didn’t want to wear a hospital gown during labour to the mama who found the confidence to tune out the advice from friends and family and do what felt right for her and her family.  

I work with women to help them find the confidence to use their voice, discover their self-worth and start believing in themselves.

I teach women to honour themselves at a time when the world is telling them everything, and everyone, else is more important.

It’s time to honour yourself.
