Baby Sleep

sleep support pregnancy and birth labour and birth newcastle and tyneside

With babies usually comes a lack of sleep – this is completely normal but it doesn’t mean it is easy. It can help to understand why babies sleep differently, what can encourage better sleep and how you can look after you and get more rest.

There are no easy solutions when it comes to babies and sleep but expectations for wanting a baby to sleep all night can sometimes be unrealistic and this can leave you tired, frustrated and feeling like you are doing something wrong.

I have worked with parents for a number of years now and I know how differently babies can sleep and how it can affect parents. Baby sleep is a focus of my postnatal support because I know how exhausting it can be – and good information, support and reassurance can make a lot of difference.


These are the sleep sessions I can offer for parents with a baby…

My Baby Sleep Service – these are 1:1 sessions which have been carefully designed to support you when are tired, out of ideas and maybe feeling like you are doing something wrong. The aim of this sleep support is not to tell you what to do or give you rigid routines, it is about providing you with the opportunity to talk it through and to gain information, ideas and a fresh perspective on your baby’s sleep.

I am able to provide daytime, evening & weekend sessions to fit around your schedule.

“We really needed this – we are tired and in need of a fresh perspective on sleep, on what we are doing and what changes we can make.”


Every few weeks I run Baby Sleep Workshops  – the aim is to provide small group workshops to look at: how babies sleep & what they need | what is normal and what to expect | what you need | practical suggestions and coping strategies

A specialist in pregnancy & birth, early parenting and parent wellbeing

I have worked with parents since 2002 and, as a practitioner with professional training and experience, I am trusted to provide a balance of reliable knowledge, non-judgemental support and much needed reassurance.

My approach is not to tell you what to do – it is to listen, to provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, it is about providing ideas and information, helping you to formulate plans and to find what works for you and for your family.

The focus is on your wellbeing in pregnancy, for birth, as a parent and as you, the person behind the parent and I have created informal but effective small group and 1:1 sessions to benefit you.

Just get in touch to find out more.
