Parents rely heavily on the professionals in their lives to give them information on their baby, especially about sleep.

Professionals working with parents get asked about infant sleep A LOT.  However, many professionals do not feel confident in the topic. This is where we come in.

We know you work your butt off making suring that your clients + patients get the best care, information and support possible. We also know that you are busy, and that finding resources and research on parenting topics can feel daunting.

So we have put together a infant + family sleep course that is designed to help you provide evidence based information that takes into account the biological and developmental needs of infants and families. Families are looking for alternatives to sleep training, and this course will teach you all about them!

 

A Neuroscience, Attachment & Mental Health Informed APPROACH TO INFANT SLEEP!

Our Infant + Family Sleep Professional Training is here to offer the first of its kind, evidence-based, science-informed infant sleep curriculum developed and facilitated by neuroscientist, Greer Kirshenbaum PhD, who specializes in brain health, emotional health and mental health.

A neuroscience revolution has occurred in the past 20 years, recognizing that a tremendous part of mental health is built from conception to age 3 - the infant years. When we nurture infants and work with their biology we promote all of the things we wish for our children: lifelong resilience, healthy relationships, intelligence, curiosity, confidence, and self-worth.

As an Infant + Family Sleep Professional, you will be learning the science behind infant/maternal sleep and with this information.

What to

expect
When we first began sleep education, clients were coming to us exhausted and overwhelmed.

They felt like bad parents because their baby wasn't a 'good' baby that slept through the night. Or they were told they created bad habits and dependent children. Many of them turned to sleep training books or experts, even though the advice they were hearing didn't feel right for them and their family.

In this certification we debunk many of the myths circulating around infant sleep. We understand the importance of listening to our infants’, and our parental, instincts both day and night. We will learn how the infant brain grows and how its development flourishes in nurturing relationships.
