Founder of NW8-Mums and Co-Founder of Magus Education
A former graduate of Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Swedish-born Karin went on to have an international career as an opera singer. In 2010, after the birth of her first child, she established a local parenting network, NW8-mums, (https://nw8-mums.com/) engaging with the area's thriving community. Drawing from her own experiences of pregnancy challenges, miscarriage and postnatal depression, she is passionate about helping others. After years of helping parents navigate the British schooling system through her parenting network, in 2016 she co-founded Magus Education (http://www.maguseducation.com/en/homepage/), a boutique educational consultancy supporting parents in finding the best school for their child.
From not being able to eat or drink anything without throwing up to becoming so ill she couldn’t stand up and having to be admitted to hospital, NW8 founder Karin Thyselius writes about her experience of hyperemesis gravidarum.
