Child sleep consultant, Midwife and traditional Chinese medicine acupuncturist...
As a midwife, and traditional Chinese medicine acupuncturist, and I was well informed and prepared for pregnancy labour and the early post-natal period. I was excited for my new role as a mother!
What I wasn’t expecting was eight months of continuous interrupted sleep! I kept hoping for improvement, wishing “tonight would be the night” my daughter would sleep longer than 3 hours. It didn’t happen, and I couldn’t function with the crippling effects of sleep deprivation. My maternity leave end date was looming, and action was needed!
Flutterby Sleep Consultancy was born after I found a solution …. my passion for sleep was ignited when I discovered the tools to teach my daughter to sleep independently using the Sleep Sense™ Program created by Dana Obleman.
I realised I was using every sleep “prop” in the book, and after committing to the program my daughter was transformed from a grumpy baby (what I now realise was chronic overtiredness), to a much happier baby…. As were, myself, my husband and the dog! I wanted to tell everyone they didn’t have to suffer like I had.
So, I completed my training in Florida with Dana to become a Certified Child Sleep Sense™ Consultant. Now I can help you promote great sleep habits for your little ones – enabling them to sleep through the night with the skill of independent sleep.
I am super excited to help families regain some control over their lives and ensure a happy, well rested family after we have worked together. I know it’s a great fit in respect to my acupuncture and midwifery career, and I think this support is a missing piece of the puzzle to help people cope, in what I feel is a very isolating time, where lots of people have recommendations, but very few solutions.
