about Desiree

When I was first pregnant with twins in 2008 I didn’t realize that sleep would play such a crucial role in my life. Of course I knew that babies needed sleep, but I assumed they would just sleep when they needed to. Needless to say the first few months of motherhood were exhausting and not what I expected. Sleep seemed like a distant memory. I often fantasized about checking myself into a local hotel to catch up on sleep.


After being severely sleep deprived I realized I needed to make a change by incorporating healthy sleep habits and teaching the twins to sleep independently. At that time, there was not a sleep coach to call, so I studied pediatric sleep and created my own hybrid approach to sleep training. And what do you know, the twins began sleeping through the night at 5 months old (4 months adjusted), then shortly after that naps began to fall into place too.


Fast forward 8 years, and I was pregnant with my third baby. However this time around I decided to start good habits from the beginning.  I was proactive and hired a sleep consultant, and reread books. I completed my sleep consultant certification in September 2017, and resigned from my 19 year marketing career to switch paths and help families like you. I guess you would say that I'm a little bit sleep obsessed ;-)

 

So here I am, ready to take you on as my next client to help you and your family get better sleep so you can enjoy the other aspects of parenting.
