Our Care Providers

At WellNested, our goal is to be the experts in postpartum care so you don’t have to be. Each of our providers must pass a rigorous vetting process that is unique to each category to ensure they have the knowledge and experience necessary to excel in their specific role and that you feel safe welcoming each WN care provider into your new family virtually or at home.


At a minimum, each WellNested Verified provider must meet the following minimum qualifications:

  • Pass federal, state and county level criminal background checks
  • Undergo academic and professional background checks
  • Meet minimum # of years experience working with infants (varies by role)
  • Provide reliable references
  • Attend a face-to-face (now virtual!) interview
  • Must have up-to-date vaccinations and flu shot
  • Must meet WN’s “fit” criteria, including a passion for caregiving work, sensitivity to the unique needs of each family and respect for/support of parents’ decisions

Karina Akib
Karina hails from Australia, where she noticed that all of her friends got much better postnatal care than we do in the States. She spent her career using tech to improve the lives of those need it most (before moving to Boston and making it her home). Believes in working towards a mission bigger than herself.

Both met at MIT Sloan where they became fast friends. After seeing friends, family and colleagues struggle to navigate accessing the right care after birth - and seeing how much better the experience could be based on the care being provided to women in the UK, France, Germany, Australia, Singapore and others - they knew being a new parent didn’t have to be so difficult. And they knew they could do something about it. That’s how WellNested was born.
