Holistic Sleep Workshop

Your baby’s sleep is important for optimal brain development and the growth hormone is produced during deeper stages of sleep.  My aim is for parents to book onto my course, to hopefully minimise the risk of your baby struggling to sleep as they grow and develop. 

I’m currently training to be a sleep coach, and during my training I would like to offer parents an opportunity to learn how they can help their baby to optimise their sleep by looking out for sleep cues.  My training is not about sleep training, where babies can become distressed during long periods of crying, and raising levels of stress hormones.  Sleep coaching works on informing parent of normal sleep for babies and gentle techniques to use so that when your baby is calm they can drift of to sleep.

This workshop can be started at any time from when your baby is 2 weeks old.  You will receive a pdf of what was covered in each session and links where appropriate to videos too.  The aim of this workshop is to help you to offer strategies and techniques to help your baby with their sleep.  The price of this workshop is £20 and your baby attends for free!
