- Mum to Alfie, Essie & Coco
Mother of three (the first two have a 21 month gap - crazy I know!). A midwife to many mummas and babies, and now a sleep consultant! Where do I get the time you might ask? Well I make time. My passion for sleep is second to none and I completely understand your desperation for help and, more importantly, solid blocks of sleep. I couldn’t bear to know that, without our help, you are silently suffering when we could easily spare a few hours to assist you. It is so rewarding… sleep is so precious and, in my opinion, underrated!
Why the passion? Because I have been in your shoes. When Alfie was three months old, my dream sleeper did a U-turn and I could not get him back on the right track. My beautiful friend and business partner Marissa encouraged me and assured me that seeking professional help from gentle sleep consultants will be life changing, and it was! This is how we landed here. With further study, we decided to help other mums in need. If we can come out the other side with babies who are happier and better sleepers, imagine all the mums, dads, babies and families we could assist in transitioning to sleep, sleep and more sleep.
As a midwife and a successful blogger, I started to connect with lots of mums who were struggling with sleep and needed help. I received numerous daily messages from desperate mums who needed help with their babies’ sleep. I offered my tips and advice from my own experience as well as personalised support and suddenly mums were happy and their babies starting sleeping. I had the magic touch! It is my privilege to help other families who find themselves where we were; thank you for letting us in.
- Sleep School Co-founder
- Certified Sleep Consultant
- Mum to William, Rafferty, Atticus & Bowie.
Mother of four and entrepreneur at heart, passionate about babies’ sleep and empowering mums to have the confidence to tackle motherhood. When my third child (Atticus) was born I knew immediately he was going to be a bad sleeper. He screamed the full five nights I was in hospital and did not sleep! The next three months were a blur. The other two were great sleepers and Atticus is my third, so surely, I should’ve had this baby sleep thing down pat, right? Wrong.
After months of lack of sleep and Atticus losing weight, our paediatrician recommended we seek professional help from a sleep consultant. Getting Atticus’ sleep on track with a solid routine and gentle settling techniques, changed our whole family unit. It wasn’t easy, it took a full month of hard work but finally everyone was getting sleep and was much happier. Atticus was thriving with his weight, I was no longer exhausted, and the older boys got their mum back!
From here I wanted to empower other Mums and use this passion to help other Families. I had this burning desire to help parents and educate them with my knowledge and give them the confidence to help settle their babies to sleep. After studying to become a certified sleep consultant and understanding about the science of sleep, I become extremely passionate and successfully started transforming exhausted Parents lives! It was the best feeling (and still is) waking up every day knowing we are helping sleep deprived Mums (and Dads!) and making such a difference in someone’s life.
I am so thankful that I have my beautiful friend and co-founder of Baby Sleep School, Amelia, on this sleep journey. Together, we wanted to create sleep programs that were flexible for the modern-day Parent. As a working Mum myself, it was important to be able to create practical and gentle sleep advice that Parents could relate too and easily implement into their lives.
Together, we bring the perfect balance through our own personal and professional experiences. Our partnership is second to none. Thank you for choosing us to help you on your sleep journey!
