Karla Newborn Care Specialist, Birth + Postpartum Doula


Karla is a NCS with over 13 years experience caring for new families and their little ones. Karla is also an EMT, postpartum doula, birth doula, seasoned nanny and lactation consultant. She loves helping new and repeat parents find their new rhythm while making sure parents feel supported and that they have a source of guidance during those very hard first weeks.

Karla started her career as a nanny and in working with a few families with newborns found her lover of postpartum work. She began by certifying as a Newborn Care Specialist, then as Postpartum and Birth Doula, and most recently trained in the Asian postpartum tradition of “Sitting the month” — or zuo yuezi.
