Welcome moms and dads!
My name is María. I’m a wife, mother, a certified Gentle Sleep Coach and the founder of Sleepy Miracles Consulting. Before becoming a mom, and after graduating from university, my career was my focus.
It was the birth of my first child that forever changed my personal and professional life. My parenting journey led me to become a Postpartum Doula and a Newborn Care Specialist.
After the birth of my second child in 2010, the most difficult challenge for me as a mommy was getting enough sleep –for my newborn, myself and the rest of my family. I felt lost, depressed, and I didn’t like the mom and person I was becoming. Sleep deprivation was really affecting me. I knew I needed to do something, but I didn’t know where to start. I couldn’t have been more confused about what to do!
I began incorporating gentle and loving sleep habits with my baby. Once he started to sleep better, I was amazed by the transformation and how it impacted all of us. I was able to be the mom, the wife and the person I wanted to be again. This experience made me realize that I would like to be a positive help for other tired parents and I knew that there was a lot more for me to learn.
So in 2011, I furthered my education by becoming a Certified Gentle Sleep Coach. A few years later I earned my second certification as a Baby & Child Sleep Consultant, and I’m currently working on my third certification as an Infant Sleep Educator. Learning and staying up-to-date is very important to me!
Now I get the honour and joy of helping families, like yours, that are struggling with their little one’s sleep, just as I did a few years ago. I absolutely love my job, and I feel privileged to be invited into the homes and lives of each family that works with me. I get the opportunity to share my knowledge, experience, and expertise with them. Accompanying them along the way and seeing how sleeping again transforms their lives is very rewarding!
Dear tired parents, healthy sleep behaviours are vital for the well-being of your family. I’d love to partner with you during these sleepless moments to create personalized solutions for your family. I believe that parents, and their children, should not suffer months (or worse, years) of sleep deprivation, especially when there are gentle and loving techniques that truly work.
I look forward to helping your family become well-rested!
