About the Consult

Learn how to help your baby sleep longer stretches at night and build good sleep habits during the newborn phase. Our newborn sleep specialists are here to help your whole family get more rest. 

We’ve heard hundreds of anxious expecting parents say, “I’m someone who just doesn’t function well without sleep.” Guess what…no one functions well with no sleep! We have been working in homes of new families for decades as night nannies and postpartum doulas. This session will help you understand more about what’s to come and help your whole family get as much rest as possible.
