Welcome Naomi

We welcome our daughter, Naomi Elise, born July 2016. Karissa will be on maternity leave this summer, but will return to supporting Families in October. Stay tuned for blog postings and updates to this site over the next few months!


Long awaited classes and clinic start this Spring!

Retro Childbirth Classes!
Harkening back to the days where expecting couples met in living rooms and broke bread together during a night of education, I am thrilled to make this a reality starting next month! Beginning in May, I will offer childbirth classes in my home.  This setting will allow students to get to know one another and form a strong network of fellow new parents.

Big News! Breastfeeding Consults and Classes

As I continue to work at Cary Pediatrics, I am expanding my lactation practice to the private sector and will be offering consults beginning in May. I am excited to extend my services to the Triangle community at large and look forward to serving more Mothers and Families. Please visit the Lactation Clinic & Class page for more details.

Thank you for allowing me to serve Triangle Families for the past seven years; I am so excited about this new adventure!
