My name is Karen Coghlan Lic.Ac, RM. I qualified as an Acupuncturist (TCM) in 2001 at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York and finally completed my Midwifery qualification in 2011 after becoming a mother myself in 2009.
I am currently working as an Acupuncturist and a Community Midwife in Hemel Hempstead and surrounding areas. I teach Antenatal Classes and also offer Birth Preparation workshops with a local yoga teacher Maria Oliver. Prior to relocating to Hemel Hempstead, I was based in South London and worked at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington as a Neonatal Nurse and then a Student Midwife.
I practise Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and specialise in providing acupuncture in pregnancy, I also use massage, cupping and moxibustion within my practise.
