DOULA & BABYWEARING EDUCATOR
Adriane Stare is a NYC-Based Babywearing Expert, Postpartum Doula, Lactation Educator and self-proclaimed 'Lazy Mom' to two boys. Keeping small humans alive is hard work by design! She believes the key to surviving the ups and downs of parenthood is finding your people, accessing evidence-based information, and having a good sense of humor. After the birth of her first son, Adriane fell in love with babywearing - the most critical skill that she learned as a new parent. She founded Caribou Baby and Wild Was Mama in 2011, Brooklyn’s beloved Natural Baby and Maternity shops and educational class spaces. For more than a decade, she’s helped thousands of families find their confident, joyful groove in parenting by teaching them how to develop real skills and strategies, instead of just buying stuff and quick solutions. Her babywearing work and parenting approach has been featured widely on news and parenting platforms, including Good Morning America, The New York Times, Mother.ly and Crain’s New York.
