I can't overstate how much we enjoyed working with Karina. She was gentle yet informative in helping us navigate the first few months of our son's life. ~C. W.

For overnight Care: I offer minimum of 8 hrs and maximum of 10 hrs night support. My shifts can start anytime between 9 and 10pm and end anytime between 6 and 7am.

Lactation support:
I provide in-home lactation support as you and your baby learn the dance of breastfeeding. Years of breastfeeding experience and support lend me a keen eye on how to make those necessary adjustments, what products might be helpful, and how to achieve those sought after deep latches. Whether you just want a few pointers or are feeling overwhelmed, my support will provide you with tips and tricks to help you figure it all out.

Pediatric sleep consultation:
As a Certificated Sleep Consultant the approach I use takes into account your feeding goals, baby's age and weight, baby's health, and other factors to come up with a customized sleep plan that will give you clear steps and tools to use to set a healthy routine. I also work on napping habits, as well as proper sleep environments, all to encourage the baby to sleep through the night.

My approach

My goal is to ensure that the mother's recovery from birth is as relaxed as possible, so she and her family may best enjoy the wonderful and rewarding process of bonding with their newborn. I enjoy working with families because it gives me a feeling of accomplishment and joy. I grew up on a farm which gave me a lifelong love of animals, especially dogs and cats. MY ideal postpartum job is one in which the baby and the parents benefit greatly from my expertise.
