Gentle Sleep Shaping for Newborns

Having a newborn is a huge learning curve, thankfully you don't have to face this alone or figure things out by trial and error.  
Let an expert teach you the soft parenting skills that most people don't acquire for many months.
These are no tear approaches that help you identify and meet you baby's feeding and sleep needs.
These teachings work best with babies 4 to 10 weeks of age.  
By 12 weeks most sleep habits are established and need to wait until 4 months to be worked on.

Dr. Sarah Mitchell is a chiropractor by training but found her passion empowering parents to teach their little ones to sleep and parent confidently day and night.  Her personal experience with a child who wouldn’t sleep, despite her healthcare background, ignited her passion for researching sleep.  She’s been working with babies since 2013 and has helped thousands of parents overcome their sleep challenges and feel even more confident in their parenting and sleep detective skills. Located in Silicon Valley, her clientele has included big tech executives, pediatricians, labour and delivery nurses and parents just like you. Their commonality: all smart, capable, resourceful people who didn’t know how to get their babies to sleep because having a great sleeper isn’t really that instinctual.  Parenting is a skill that can be taught.
