my story​

When my son Felix was born, I thought I was prepared. I’d taken the classes, read the books and yet… NOTHING could prepare me for this.

Being a mother is the hardest thing I've ever done.

A few months in, I really started to struggle with sleep. I was reading all of this advice on leaving my baby to cry so he would learn how to sleep on his own, or patting his bum (but not picking him up) while he cried. Or how I should put him in his crib drowsy, but awake.

This advice went against every fiber of my being. But I didn't know what else to do.

I started to feel even more alone, alienated, and isolated. Was I the only one in the world who wanted to love my baby to sleep? (Clearly, no… but it felt like it at the time – maybe you can relate!)

Eventually, I did find ways to get more sleep and balance that didn’t involve sleep-training that took into account my own needs AS WELL as my baby’s needs (because it doesn’t have to be an either/or scenario here).

I pursued my Infant Sleep Educator certification with Bebo Mia Inc so I could help moms like you drop the guilt for wanting to listen to their instincts. Now, I want to help you feel good about listening to your heart while still meeting your own needs in a way that feels fair to everyone.

Are you ready to team up with someone who's been there before?

Together, we’ll get you some more sleep, some time to yourself, and some confidence – while still meeting your baby’s needs.
