I’m K. and I am a Baby Nurse.
I’ve been working with children since I was 15 and I must say that I really love it!
I started out by watching my younger siblings and nieces and I took the best care of them.

As a Certified Newborn Care Specialist, I’m CPR and First Aid Certified. I am also a dependable, fun, warm, nurturing, attentive and patient young woman.
In this field I work with newborns between the ages of 0- 28 days and infants 1- 11 months.
Being a mother, I really enjoy what I do, especially being around families and their young ones.
If I am to be welcomed into your home to be a part of and care for your fantastic family, have no worries, because nurture and care is all I’m known to give.
I will also offer emotional support to parents seeing that peace of mind and comfort is extremely important. Babies and infants will be on a routine, preparation of meals and soothing technique will be administered if requested. Caring for your child will be done in a clean and organized environment.
My goal is for you to have a healthy and happy baby!


Hi Mamas,

We have been in the Hamptons […] with our wonderful Baby Nurse, Karen Wellesley. […] Karen has been irreplaceable with almost a decade of experience including raising her own daughter. She goes above and beyond in her role as a Baby Nurse. She is great at all the basics (feeding, bathing, playing, and sleep training). She shows exceptional patience like when she is soothing the baby and getting her to take as much of her feed as she can. Karen has been an amazing resource but is never pushy in telling me what to do/how I should do something.

Karen has the most relaxed and upbeat demeanor – something I found invaluable during these uncertain times. She is extremely low maintenance (no drama) and she has kept a lighthearted attitude throughout this entire newborn and infant process.

Karen has forged an amazing bond with my 4 month old and has also become a buddy to my 4 year old. She mostly stays in the baby’s room and plans her meals around ours. She’s seamlessly integrated into the way we lived both in the city and now out East.

I have had a terrific experience with her and if/when I have another baby, I will certainly ask her to return. She is someone I will stay in touch with forever. She came highly recommended to me by another mama (and I’m sure would also be happy to act as a reference).

If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to email or text/call me at […].
