Hi, I’m Olivia. The fact that you’re reading this means we already have something in common: we both love sleep. It wasn’t until I had my first child that I realised how crucial sleep is, not only for myself, but for the well-being of my entire family.
From birth, my daughter had trouble sleeping. At around 4 months, she took the sleeplessness to the next level; for months, I had less than 2 hours of consecutive sleep night after night, and naps were spent stuck beneath a sleeping baby, scared to move.
I didn’t know what to do. I asked everyone - friends, family, health visitors, even my GP! And everyone had different advice. Bed sharing, feeding to sleep, leaving my baby to cry…I tried it all, but it just left both me and my baby feeling confused and upset. What’s more, it started to impact upon my relationship.
In a sleep deprived haze, I came across a recommendation for Karen on Facebook, written by another mum who had been through exactly the same ordeal with her baby - and had come out the other side! I typed that email so fast there was smoke coming off the keyboard!
Within a matter of weeks, my life had been transformed. I could place my daughter in her cot, awake, and she would smile at me. I could leave her in her room knowing that she would be soundly asleep within minutes.
Even better, it wasn’t just me who had to be responsible for night times anymore. My husband could do it. Even grandparents could do it, leaving mum and dad to have our first date night in over a year!
After my year of sleep deprivation, I knew I had to help other parents going through the same trauma and confusion, which is exactly why I’ve undertaken the training to become a fully certified sleep consultant. Rest assured, I’ve been at the point you are likely at now, and nothing brings me greater joy than helping fellow parents create a peaceful, stress free bedtime for their family.
You don’t have to dread nap times and bedtime anymore, or wade through conflicting, confusing advice, always wondering if you’re making the right choice for your baby. I can help you transform your family’s life.
