Karah

Karah grew up in the South Bay until she moved to San Francisco to earn her BA in Psychology from San Francisco State. She was trained and certified as a postpartum doula through Birth Arts International. Along with her postpartum certification, Karah also has experience as a prenatal doula.

Karah’s passion for doula work was originally ignited by an Infant/Toddler Development class which explored the importance of natural, compassionate care for pregnant and postpartum mothers and their babies. Throughout college, she worked as a nanny in San Francisco; following graduation she moved across the bay to Oakland and started full time work as a preschool teacher. For the past 3 years she has loved early childhood education but her undeniable passion for the birth worker field lead her to become certified as a postpartum doula. Karah’s calling to postpartum care connects beautifully with her background in Child Development as she guides families through the growth and development of their children.

Karah believes all families deserve equal access to prenatal, birth, and postpartum care. She supports mothers making informed/educated decisions for from pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. She believes “mothering the mother” and compassionate care will bring about better physical, psychological, and spiritual health for mothers and their families. From her work as a postpartum doula, she discovered what she loved the most was cooking and serving wholesome, fresh, real food for the families she cared for. She has not only enjoyed the meal preparation but the research and science of nutrition, specifically Postpartum Nutrition. She is supportive and knowledgeable of the Nourishing Traditions model of care and nutrition. In her spare time, Karah enjoys running, yoga, writing, cooking/baking and singing.
