ITEM 7: Gentle Sleep Consultation Gift Certificate – $100 Value
Donated by Full Circle Doula Collective
Opening Bid: $30
One of the #1 concerns for all parents alike is: Sleep. Whether they should be sleep training; sleeping longer; sleeping shorter; sleeping alone; not sleeping alone; what is normal; what is safe; is a schedule necessary; what are safe practices; and how to prevent SIDS.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I will help you find solutions that fit your needs and meet the needs of your baby/toddler.
My sleep services provide an alternative solution to ‘sleep training, crying it out’, or just struggling through it. As a certified infant sleep educator, I will help you to understand the science behind infant & child sleep, we will discuss what “normal” is, & how to provide a safe and conducive sleep environment. This will help you to have realistic expectations around normal, and healthy sleep behavior.
I help your family find the balance around everyone’s sleep needs, with gentle and respectful coaching, recommendations and validation. I can assess your current concerns and together we can get to the root of the issue(s), while brainstorming some ideas, to give you the tools and education to help you make the necessary changes that feel right for all of you.

I come with a whole assortment of carriers for you to try-before-you-buy. I can also help with carriers you already have, and can help you navigate buying any carriers you may want/need assuring you have the right things to help you hold your baby close (and be hands-free!!) Babywearing is a great way to build closeness with your baby and can help strengthen your bond. My best wishes to you and your new baby! I can’t wait to help you on your babywearing journey!
