Karina Newborn Care Specialist, Sleep Consultant + Parent Coach


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!

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.

A Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) and sometimes referred to as a 24-hour baby nurse or 24-hour night nurse, is a highly experienced individual who specializes in newborn and infant care.
