Kara Ffrench, CNM


While dancing professionally in NYC, Kara decided to also pursue a second Bachelor's degree in nursing that she knew would lead her to midwifery. While in school she worked as a Birthing Assistant at the Brooklyn Birthing Center. Upon graduating, Kara worked at a NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan as a Labor & Delivery nurse and then as the Assistant Nurse Manager of the Mother-Baby unit.


These experiences combined with the Midwifery education she received at Stony Brook University helped to round out her midwifery education and practice. She worked with Dale Cook, the previous owner of Gaia, attending home and hospital births. Since then she has worked with a large Ob/Gyn practice and the Stony Brook Midwives before making a complete circle back to Gaia.


Her main goals are to help women feel empowered, feel in control of their bodies and reproductive health, and have a peaceful birthing experience that they can look back on fondly.
