Postpartum Doula, Lactation, and Early Childhood Consultant

Happiest Baby is a mission-driven company helping parents raise healthy, happy children and saving lives. We make SNOO, the world's first smart sleeper and the safest baby bed ever made—proven to add 1-2 hours of sleep per night—and develop landmark products, content, and services.
Our CEO is the renowned pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp, author of the best-selling parenting guide, "The Happiest Baby on the Block." SNOO was built with a team of MIT engineers and celebrated designers. It is the most awarded baby product in history and has been exhibited in six of the world's top museums (e.g., Smithsonian, SF MOMA, London Design Museum).
Parenting is one of the greatest joys in life. Loving our children is natural and intuitive but knowing how to parent them is a skill built on experience. Yet modern parents often have little childcare experience and little hands-on help from friends and family. That is a problem because exhaustion and the stress of parenting can trigger a host of serious issues, including marital conflict, breastfeeding failure, accidents, obesity, postpartum depression/anxiety and thousands of infant sleep deaths…each and every year.
That’s where Happiest Baby makes a difference! We develop science-based products, content and services to enhance children’s well-being and to help solve every day parenting challenges.
Happiest Baby seeks to hire a certified Doula and Lactation Consultant who can join our efforts in helping parents succeed at their more important job – raising healthy, happy children.
We are looking for a passionate and academic professional who is interested in helping parents address those first days at home with their baby, feeding struggles, and other newborn concerns. You would ask questions to understand the specific needs of parents and babies and to offer suggestions from your detailed knowledge.
Experience as a registered nurse (or PA/PNP) is preferred and salary will be adjusted accordingly.
This role would support parents over phone, email, and video and can be done in our office or your home.
