Baby Sleep the NightTM

Marina Goncalves

I started working in a nursery in Portugal when I was 13 years old. As the years passed, I realised that my true calling was working with children. I moved to London 15 years ago and began working with families, providing personalised approaches. Throughout these years, I have been studying and expanding my knowledge. It is extremely important to me to assist families in the best way possible.

I have noticed that sleep is a common area where parents struggle, and I decided to specialise in studying sleep. Through my experience, I have learned that every family is unique, but the lack of good sleep can lead to similar issues. Therefore, I am here to help you in the best way I can. Being a mother myself, I have encountered many challenges, but I have found that many of them can be resolved by applying the knowledge I have acquired.

My expertise doesn’t stop with sleep! I’m also well-equipped to assist you in other areas of your baby’s development. Together, we’ll create a nurturing and enriching environment that fosters growth, health, and happiness. Let’s work together to ensure your little one is getting the best possible start in life.

Our 8 month old son had always been happily fed to sleep at night in our bed but something changed and it reached a point where our son was waking every 45 minutes and he was very tired.

Daytime naps were either contact naps or walking for hours trying to get him to sleep and hoping a siren or loud noise didn’t wake him up! It was a nightmare and I dreaded nap times.

Marina was absolutely amazing. One visit to our home, his bedroom was changed around and our evening routine was altered. He was in his cot, something that I thought was impossible and the first night we followed the routine he only woke three times. Within a few days he was sleeping through, something I thought was impossible because he was breast fed.

Marina was so supportive, listened to what we wanted and created a sleep plan that suited us. Words can’t really express how our lives have dramatically improved and her continued support afterwards was reassuring and made me feel like I wasn’t alone.

Marina is very knowledgeable about sleep patterns and routines. We are so happy and thankful for her help.

– Parents to 8 month old boy –

Marina Gonçalves has helped our family with sleep training and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Our little one was waking up multiple times a night, co- sleeping and still feeding to sleep and she’s helped us transition him to a cot, falling asleep independently and none of this was done by ‘crying it out’ or harsh methods leaving us both scarred.

I couldn’t recommend her enough, she has a passion and instinct for helping any child and family.

Thank you Marina ❤️

– Mum to 8 month old –

Marina has a gift with babies and mums and I’m so glad she was supporting me with my newborn. She takes a gentle and tailored approach to achieving better sleep, and she seemed to have a sixth sense for what would work for my baby, as well as so much experience, training and knowledge. The help she has given me was so particular to my baby and circumstances and I could never have got the same from books or the internet.

This was my third child and I wish I had taken her advice with the first two – it has been a game changer. I also really wish everyone could have a Marina in their lives!
