About / Bio
Kara Pitt-D’Andrea has been working with new and expecting families since 2006 in, and around, the Milwaukee area. Kara’s work with families in Milwaukee began in the roll of preschool teacher and administrator of a non-profit daycare and ultimately as the Executive Director of the center. During her tenure at the daycare, Kara began working on in-house trainings for staff and teachers including, but not limited to: Shaken Baby Prevention, Effective Workplace Communication, Happiest Baby on the Block, and Methods for Reducing Workplace Stress.
Following the birth of her first child in 2008, Kara began working more closely with new parents and extended her certifications to Infant Massage, Birth Doula, and Certified Lactation Counselor. In 2011 Kara completed her Masters of Oriental Medicine, from Midwest College in Racine, and focused her thesis on Postpartum Maternal Recovery. It was this same year, 2011, that Kara transitioned to focusing exclusively on Childbirth Education, birth support and early postpartum support for families both through her private practice at Natural Wisdom Family Care, as well as through local agencies and organizations around Milwaukee. Kara has continued to develop and collaborate on adult education classes in an effort to build the network of a parent support system in Southeastern Wisconsin.
Kara additionally holds a Bachelors degree in Sociology from the University of Maryland in 2004 and BS in Nutrition from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine.
