About Me

Hi! My name is Kara and I am a midwife and pediatric nurse in New York City.

I am originally from South Jersey and moved up to New York City to follow the man that I would eventually marry. I went to the University of Pennsylvania for nursing and then to Columbia University in New York for my masters degree in Nurse-Midwifery.

In midwifery school I realized how little we are taught about fertility and how little women know. I decided to start teaching myself by reading books and researching the latest studies on fertility. As I became more and more knowledgeable I began recording the information I discovered and that is how The Fertile Times was born.

I love the beach, farmer’s markets and babies, so it is no wonder I became a pediatric nurse and midwife.
