Kissng the Newborn
Newborn Baby

You are used to getting sleep and you feel like you need it to function.    


Since being a parent, you find yourself waking up more often, getting poor quality sleep and not being able to get back to sleep even if the baby is sleeping.  

You find yourself just laying in bed awake, either because the baby isn't sleeping, or because your mind is just wandering, or even because it feels nice to have some alone time for once.  

You are not alone! 

  • 78% of new parents report struggling with sleep and having poor quality sleep for the first 6 years of their kids lives!  

  • It is common to want to be in control of sleep, either yours or your babies, and you are used to being able to be in control.  

  • We all expect that we will not get sleep for a few months... but it has been longer than that and you are starting to feel like the lack of sleep is getting in the way of your functioning and mental health.     

You do not have to continue to feel this way! 

Schedule an initial consultation and find out how the pregnancy and postpartum sleep issues therapy and pediatric sleep consulting can help you make a plan for nights, get your baby sleeping and get you the rest that you are needing.
