Karina Newborn Care Specialist, Sleep Consultant + Parent Coach
SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN MA, CT, and RI
When Karina was growing up, her mother was a foster mother exclusively to newborns/infants. With these experiences in hand, by the time she graduated high school, she already knew that the littlest ones were her passion. She’s spent the past 12 years working as a newborn care specialist and nanny specializing with children ages 0-3. She has trained in the RIE method where infants are spoken to and treated respectfully and intentionally, and she holds a BA in child development. She is also pursuing certifications as a PPD and CLC.
She has experience with multiples, LGBTQ families, trans-racial adoption, children with disabilities, grief, and loss, as well as many other unique family situations. Her favorite thing to do is to put together schedules and routines for growing babies!
When not supporting new families...
In her off time, Karina is a mother to of a spunky sassy and spectacular nine-year-old girl. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga and relaxing quality time with family and friends.
Certifications & Training
"Working with Karina was life changing! My sweet baby boy woke every 1/1.5 hours at night. Our days were a disaster. Sleep deprivation was taking a toll on my mental health. Karina’s ongoing support provided my baby with the tools to love sleep. He is almost five and a half months old and is now able to fall asleep independently. I haven’t had to go into the nursery between 7PM to 6:30AM for weeks! Never in a million years would I think that was possible. Karina is incredibly kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. 100/5 stars!!!"
"Karina's knowledge and professionalism combined with her warm, kind presence made us very comfortable having her in our home caring for our little one. It was extremely valuable having the peace of mind that I would be able to get good night's rest the evenings she was here. She also went above and beyond by providing a thorough list of product recommendations and even consulting with us and putting together a sleep plan for our 2 year old, who was still struggling with bed time and sleeping through the night."
"Karina is so, so knowledgeable. She looks at the entire development and wellbeing of babies, not just sleep."
Karina provides in-home sleep training in MA, CT, and Rhode and virtual sleep training nationwide.
