Infant + Family Sleep Specialist Certification

join us for the nurtured sleep revolution


There is so much information available for parents when it comes to their infants sleep it can feel overwhelming.

It can be hard to navigate the different options for infant sleep, while factoring in what works best for babies, parents and the family as a whole. This course 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 Specialist Certification is here to change this conversation by offering 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 Specialist, you will not be learning how to shape new babies to fit into lives and schedules. Instead, you will be learning the science behind infant/maternal sleep and with this information, the tools needed to create balance and support for your clients around those facts.


How do we, as health professionals, normalize infant sleep biology while fostering healthy and safe sleep habits for the entire family? We change the conversation, we change the expectations, we get creative with accessing support.

What to

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.


In this Certification

You Will Learn:
  • There are many ways to support infant sleep, maternal sleep and family sleep. There is another option for your clients outside of cry it out , and you will have the science and evidence based research to back it up.
  • The biology of sleep in infants and adults - how sleep develops and what brain areas produce sleep.
  • How parenting, daytime and nighttime, influence attachment, infant mental health and brain development.
  • To tackle the big questions like putting a baby to sleep, night wakings, early rising, naps, night weaning, transitioning babies to their own room and parents’ needs.
  • How infant and adult sleep differ and how to create realistic expectations for infant naps and sleep based on biological norms and brain development.
  • How sleep training might put brain development and mind body health at risk; while sleep promoting and supporting methods nurture brain development and mind-body health.
  • A spectrum of nurturing techniques to promote and support sleep in infants.
  • Communication techniques to meaningfully listen to, understand and support caregivers.
  • To create science-informed and wholistic personalized plans to support infant and family sleep.
  • How to work through sleep disruptions and imbalance when postpartum mood disorders are part of the equation

"This infant sleep educator training to me was a doorway into manyopportunities to learn about neuroscience, emotional intelligence, and many different parenting styles and of course infant sleep.  This is putting the evidence behind our words and learning science and neurological development of infants that was something I felt was missing.  The manual, live training, and extra videos are created nicely that benefited me together and separately.  I love the many resources we have for parents and concrete steps in coaching.  I can use the information on coaching within my doula practices, espe

cially fertility.  Greer has been available to us for all the questions and so supportive.  The mission for this course has been shared with many parents who have been touchedby the words written in our manual and it helps lead us as infant sleep educators.  Also, the community of students has been amazing, we have all connected and will continue to connect with each other.  One of the reasons I love taking Bebo Mia courses is for the community.  A fire has been lit for all of us and I can’t wait to see how we all start to change society."

"This past month I was asked to give a talk to a mother's group on infant sleep. Having taken the Infant Sleep Educator training course through Bebo Mia made it SOOOO EASY, despite the fact that public speaking is waaay outside my comfort zone. The fact that I ALREADY had a presentation was awesome and having a complete powerpoint to start with made it possible for me to feel good about doing this talk and approach it with confidence. It was done before I even started! It really helped to not have to go through all the technology stuff, and writing the content and upload things etc etc. It freed me up to think about how to make it my own, how to make it meaningful for this group and for me. I had all the modules to refer to, I had my notes from the videos and it was a simple and stress free experience to prepare for this talk. This EASY prep for the talk really allowed me to be really present for the presentation and it was easy to flow though it and add my own personality and philosophy and say the things or to share my message about sleep. It was a great experience and certainly a big win and I have to say it made the idea of presenting very accessible and actually helped make this milestone of public speaking about sleep and parenting a possibility for me! The way this course has been delivered and presented and the tools it gave us - TOTALLY MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MY ROCKING IT! Thank you for this course - its has really brought so very much to me."

Kimberley Stanley

“The Infant Sleep Educator Certification course is the missing piece in parental education. It provides new parents with researched based information and gives them the permission to follow their instincts in honouring their babies needs, while harmonizing their own sleep needs. Bianca, Natasha and Brandie deliver the content in a fun, exuberant way in which you really feel as though you are sitting around a coffee table with them. Having a module delivered once a week allowed me to continue being present with my 3 children as well as continuing to propel my own doula business forward. The Facebook group is often bumping with thought provoking posts and enlightening discussions, and our facilitators are always actively posting and answering questions sometimes within minutes of being posted. I felt well supported throughout the program and I am confident in my role as an infant sleep educator to the families that I will serve.”

Serene Pierce

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course, most of all because of the structure. Whether you are a busy professional, a tired new parent, or perhaps both, the design of this course makes it possible to put down and pick up in those little pockets of time found between other obligations. The content is easy to follow and the group discussions in the Facebook group help to apply that knowledge to practical examples or situations. I hope this approach continues to spread and sleep education begins to overshadow sleep training. I am looking forward to working with families, empowering them with knowledge and supporting them in their challenges with sleep. "

Becky Soehner

The Dream On course was amazing. Not only for my own Doula Practice but for being a mother. Learning about the importance of attachment science and brain development, as well as tools to help babies and families get more sleep has been invaluable. The flexibility of the course has allowed me to do it at my own pace, to fit it in with the business of life. Bianca, Natasha and Brandie are hilarious and knowledgeable, this is the second Bebo Mia course I have taken and I am always impressed by the depth of information and the hands on help.

“Oh man! What a game changer!

These ladies are incredibly professional and inspiring, they are SO FUNNY and friendly. Their approach to success is based on excellence, hard work, and kindness, never competition or nastiness.

They walked me (and continue to do so) through every step of the way so that I could see my business thrive. Don’t miss the chance to work with these badass, inspiring women!”
