Karen Chipman


My name is Karen Chipman, owner of Stork Ready. I am the mother of three adult children. (Kurt, Alexander and Sarah)


I have been working in labor and delivery units for over thirty years. I became a certified ICEA childbirth educator for the hospital that I worked in. I learned how very important it is to educate and empower women and their partners for their labor and birth experience. 


My passion is to help women and their families during their pregnancy and first year after birth. I have taught childbirth classes at two of the cities largest teaching hospitals as well as in the community.

Jackie  Giasullo RN,BSN


Hi, I'm Jackie, I have been a labor and delivery nurse for the past 6 years and am now a new mom to my beautiful baby girl, Jane.  Being a mother is my number one passion and second to that is supporting other women through the process.


Before becoming a labor and delivery nurse, I helped care for new moms on the postpartum floor of the hospital and taught infant massage classes there as well. Helping women during this time is something I have always loved to do. Now more than ever, I know how important it is to feel empowered during this time.  I am excited to be a part of Stork Ready and the many useful classes provided to new parents.


In addition to being a new mom and working with expecting parents, I enjoy spending time with my family and staying active.  My husband and I cook often and are always looking for good plant-based recipes!

Jensine Casey

Sleep Consultant

Hi! I’m Jensine Casey, sleep consultant, lover of all things beach related, and mom to two handsome boys, with a girl on the way! I work with families of children 4 and under who are exhausted and struggling with getting their little ones to sleep for naps or at night. Through sleep consulting, your entire family's life will change. Not to sound dramatic but it’s true. But with so many methods of child rearing and sleep training it is difficult to know what works best for your particular family.


Becoming a sleep consultant became a dream and passion of mine after working with one myself to get my older son sleeping as I saw how life changing it was to sleep through the night and have daily naps I could rely on. I’m devoted to working with families around the world to get their lives back, just as I got mine back! Every day I work with families just like yours to provide a program and support through getting their child to be an amazing sleeper. I am proof that the support works and is trans-formative.


Safe sleep and sweet dreams!

As a Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), she enthusiastically helps families reach their feeding goals: from breastfed to formula fed to somewhere in between. Her years of experience working with families as a postpartum doula guides her lactation support: she looks at the “whole picture” of the family and the baby.

Michal Feldman

International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)

Like many new moms, I knew very little about breastfeeding before having
children of my own. I learned first hand that our pre-delivery ideals are not
always easily, or ever, met, and felt empowered by the lactation consultants
who educated and guided me through this challenging time. It was a natural
choice to pay forward the knowledge and support I had received.
As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I look
forward to working with you to reach your feeding goals, with compassion and
evidence-based care catered to your individual needs. We will continue
reevaluating our plan while we unfold what best suits you and your family, and
how that may evolve over time. I am passionate about ensuring that you feel
heard, supported, and in control of your feeding plan - whatever it looks like -
so that we save space for snuggling and loving your baby. It is an honor to be
a part of your precious postpartum period.

Katie Moulison PT, DPT, TPS (she/her)

Yoga Instructor

Hi there! I’m Katie (she/her) I empower pre and postnatal individuals to find freedom from pain through movement and mindfulness. I have seen (and experienced) the impact that persistent pain has and don’t want anyone to suffer longer than they need to. 


I am the mother of one tiny human (born December 2022), and two not so tiny dogs! 


I blend my background as a yoga instructor, therapeutic pain specialist, and physical therapist to help you find freedom and joy in your life - without pain.  


Everyone deserves:

  • To feel confident that if your baby needs a contact nap, you can enjoy snuggles without pain

  • To be able to lay down in bed at night and feel a sigh of relief - comfortable and painfree and able to sleep

  • To feel confident that when baby reaches their next milestone (rolling, crawling, walking, running) you can keep up with them

  • To take care of yourself even when you are taking care of a baby all day too


At Stork Ready I teach prenatal, postnatal, and baby and me yoga classes.

Nicole Bubb MSN RN

Hi I’m Nicole and I’ve worked as a high risk labor and delivery nurse at a Boston hospital for 16 years. During my time as an OB nurse I’ve cared for woman during pregnancy, labor, surgical procedures, and postpartum. I have also helped many bereaved parents thru a pregnancy loss or stillbirth. 


I have a bachelor of science degree in nursing and a master of science degree in nursing education. In addition to educating my patients, I’ve taught clinical to nursing students as well as nursing simulation classes. I’ve taught childbirth and newborn essential classes for 10+ years. I’m passionate about empowering women and families during their pregnancies, labors, deliveries and the initial postpartum period. I believe knowledge is power and I’ve spent my career helping new families thrive! 


As a mom of three I can relate and offer personal and professional experience, expertise and education. I have an 8 year old, a 6 year old and an 8 month old. The greatest joy is my family and I’m excited to help you with yours! I can’t wait to meet you and work together!

michelle grasso music together around the towns music classes

Michelle Grasso

Music Together Around the Towns

I always tell my son to find what he loves and then he will find his place and his community. That’s what happened for me when I discovered the joy of music-making.

My love of music began while listening to opera at my Nana’s house and Sinatra in my Grandmother’s apartment. Then I started singing in the church choir when I was 5 years old and I haven’t stopped since. Over the years, I have played several instruments including the flute, piccolo, French horn, and viola. I’ve also sung in every type of choir you can imagine. I hold degrees in music from the University of New Hampshire and the University of Arizona. In 2005, I became a certified Music Together® teacher and I have been teaching the program ever since. In 2021, I became the Director of Music Together Around The Towns and I am thrilled to be able to offer quality music classes for families in the area.

Music is a positive, powerful force. It has been shown to be beneficial to our brains and development. Most importantly, I believe music lifts and nurtures our spirit, and is best when we experience it together.

When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, gardening, photography, volunteering at my son’s school, and traveling with my family. I live in Reading with my husband, our son, two dogs, two parakeets and a hive of honeybees.
