SLEEP + WELL-BEING SPECIALIST
This approach to sleep coaching is not like others you've probably seen or heard of. What we do as baby-led sleep and well-being specialists is that we look at the dyad between parent and baby/child. We focus on maintaining that connection between them while finding solutions to more sleep. We believe in responsive parenting, meeting our children at their developmental level, guides parents back to their intuition and empowering mothers (and primary caregivers) to make improvements to their baby and child's sleep. There is no use of any kind of separation techniques, again, we want to preserve that dyad between parent and child.
