Nessle is dedicated to making new parenthood a more supported experience.

As an online directory and training organization, Nessle improves the experience of virtual perinatal care by connecting parents with trained perinatal experts who can provide evidence-based guidance and judgment-free support. Our course, Best Practices in Virtual Perinatal Care, educates experts in the nuances of tele-support so that doulas, lactation specialists, and other birth workers can provide effective guidance and forge genuine connections through digital tools.

Through Nessle, Carly also provides one-on-one support as a postpartum doula and certified lactation counselor to in-person clients in the Richmond, Virginia area, and to virtual clients worldwide. Learn more at
