Hi! I’m Kara Mears. I’m a mama, Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, Certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher, Registered Nurse and Founder of SweetMama Doula. I’ve been practicing and teaching yoga for nearly fifteen years; I do my very best every day to walk my talk. I love walks in the woods, swimming in the Atlantic, fairisle sweaters, and early, quiet mornings. I’ve supported dozens of mothers in labor and postpartum. With a previous BA in photojournalism that I earned before my nursing and doula days, I am fascinated by the commonalities of journalism, birth work, and yoga. I find joy and fulfillment in the creative process of witnessing a story, watching the action unfold in real time, and calling upon my keenest observation skills. I believe with my whole heart that peace on Earth begins at birth. To this end, I am passionate about empowering women on their journey into motherhood and welcoming babies into this world. I hope you’ll join me on this birth integration journey and appreciate the time you’ve taken to explore if this is the right option for you.
