A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Hello! I'm Isadora, founder of Mother-Baby Sleep, an attachment-focused and evidence-based sleep education and mentoring resource for parents, aiming to normalise infant and child sleep and support families to get more sleep without any sleep training.
I created Mother-Baby Sleep to help mothers, who just liked me, found themselves lost in a sea of good and bad information about baby sleep and needed help understanding what could be trusted. For months I was fighting my natural instincts of wanting to stay close to my baby and respond to him, because the books and the experts were telling me otherwise.
After several months of study and learning from over 40 internationally renowned experts. I have now completed two major sleep qualifications: the Holistic Sleep Coaching Programme (OCN Level 5) from the UK, and the Baby-Led Sleep & Wellbeing Certification from Canada, and continue to benefit from ongoing education through their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes and a community of other respectful attachment-focused sleep and child development professionals.
The information I share with parents is based on peer-reviewed scientific evidence; it looks at what the norm of our species is from an anthropological point of view as well as in comparison to other animals, in particular other mammals, taking into account our differences and our need for adaptation in a modern industrialised world; it promotes closeness, responsiveness, respect, attachment and natural-term, on demand breastfeeding, but most of all, it promotes choice.
My approach is holistic and family-centred. I look at your whole unique family context, including your baby's temperament, unique needs, development & nutrition, any medical concerns affecting sleep that may require referral to a specialist; the emotional well-being of the entire family, their sleep environment, sleep history & current routines, as well as your goals & expectations. I help you to regain your intuition, involving you in decision-making rather than telling you what to do, promoting and strengthening inter-familial relationships, taking all family members into account, honouring your family's culture, religion and ethnicity and respecting your choices.
