Hello, my name is Heather and I am a Pediatric Sleep Consultant, certified through the renowned Family Sleep Institute.
My journey into pediatric sleep, like many, began after having my first child. Around the four month mark, my easy sleeper turned into another child. Ahhh, the infamous four month sleep regression! It was at a sleep workshop that I discovered sleep is a learned skill. I had always thought babies either slept well or didn’t and there wasn’t much you could do about it. I had never been more wrong. With a few tweaks to his schedule, my easy sleeper came back and all was right in the world. My passion for child sleep began to grow, as did my desire to help other tired families.
After researching a few “sleep schools”, I discovered the Family Sleep Institute and their unique philosophy struck a chord. They understand that the right method for each family is one that respects their individuality, and the specific sleep needs of the child. There is no “best method”. They all work but at different paces.
I registered for school while “enjoying” the remainder of my second pregnancy, then my sweet newborn. Turns out that baby number two was not an easy sleeper! I get it, I really do. The excruciating fatigue impacted every aspect of my life. I am grateful to the Family Sleep Institute for the knowledge they have imparted to me which I used first hand helping my own child learn to sleep. It works! She has become a beautiful sleeper and I couldn’t be more proud. We did it together!
What I really want you to know about me, is that I put my heart and soul into my work. You aren’t just getting a list of instructions, you are getting my full support. Consider me an extended member of your family. I will guide you every step of the way, encourage you through the challenging moments and join you in celebrating your child achievements. We are in this together!
Helping your child learn to sleep will change your life, so let’s get started!
