Cara Natterson, MD, is a pediatrician, New York Times–bestselling author, and co-founder and CEO of OOMLA, a company designed to make puberty more comfortable (literally) by creating content and products for tweens and teens. She co-hosts The PUBERTY PODCAST which updates adults on how this transformative stage has changed (and oh, has it changed!) and recently launched the TikTok channel SpillingThePuberTea.
Cara’s puberty books – including The Care and Keeping of You series, Guy Stuff and Guy Stuff Feelings – plus her parenting books – most recently Decoding Boys – are read by millions. She graduated from Harvard College and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine; she trained in pediatrics at the University of California at San Francisco; and she is a board-certified pediatrician and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. But Cara learned most of what she knows from the two teenagers living under her roof.
