ALL SLEEP MATTERS
During your pregnancy, how many times did you hear the words ‘say goodbye to sleep’ - it doesn’t need to be like that. We all know that newborns need to be fed overnight, but with pre birth advice on what to expect, and post birth support putting the right habits in place from day one, you can start on the path to realistic and healthy sleep.
Once you are out the other side of what I think of as the newborn phase, but you have now been sleep deprived for 4,5,6 months; 3,4,5; or even 6,7,8 years, I work with you as individuals to establish good habits, routines that work, and through extensive communication can advise on the correct methods that you are comfortable with for your specific issues. I do not advocate cry it out or controlled crying, but the methods I use come from the prestigious training I received at the world renowned Norland Nursery Training College, and have then continued to develop these gentle, supportive methods through working with thousands of families around the world.
"We can fix this...it's just a phase...we don't need help"
These are some of the phrases you might be saying or thinking right now, but would you be saying this if your boiler had broken down or you needed mortgage advice?! No, you would get help without hesitation, guilt or feeling like you have failed. The reality is that in the UK alone parents seeking sleep help has tripled in the last 10 years. This is not a sign of failing, in fact it is entirely the opposite because through seeking help when you are ready, you are helping not just your baby or child sleep, but your sanity, mental health and even relationships.
My mission is to help and support as many families as possible to allow them a positive and healthy approach to parenthood, with tailor made advice specific to you, your baby and families needs. Enhancing your confidence by imparting my knowledge, allowing you to make informed decisions about your parenting styles.
Lack of sleep is cited as one of the nations biggest health crisis, and there is well documented evidence of the negative impacts on mental and physical health. As a client said recently, the gift of sleep is the best gift you can give.
I thought I was failing as a parent by getting help, but the reality was by not getting help, I was not the best version of me I could be. Sarah changed that within one conversation.
