Working Mom Mini E-Course: $20.
This brief mini course will touch on preparing mentally and physically for going back to work as a new mom. I discuss considerations for pumping in the workplace, how to choose the right childcare, and tips to help with maintaining a secure attachment and fostering new relationships. I also discuss how you can assist with sleep interruptions during this new transition.

This course is ideal for a mother who is transitioning from exclusively breastfeeding to pumping at work while breastfeeding and pumping at home.

This is best suited for infants up to age 1 and would be best purchased while still expecting (third trimester) or prior to returning to work (the earlier the better to fully understand pumping!) You will have access for 4 months from the date of purchase. Video and written information for ease of access provided in addition to extra links to further assist with understanding.

Mini Course on Naps $15. The basics on short naps, contact naps, nap transitions, and the optimal nap environment for your family with tips on how to improve naps. Taught from the perspective of an exclusively breastfeeding mother with a focus on attachment parenting.

What they’re saying, “I was fortunate enough to win a mini consult with Jenn and right from the start I was super impressed and pleased with how thorough this process is! The intake form was super detailed and really made me explore a lot of variables that I didn’t even consider could be factoring into my babies (and my own) sleep issues. During the actual consult, Jenn exceeded expectations by digging deeper into each response and really made sure I understood the context of each subject. She not only took the time to explain everything in great detail AND supplied me with an abundant amount of resources, websites, PDFs, etc but she made everything so relatable and personalized to my daughter and I’s sleep needs!

I now have such a better understanding on sleep expectations and goals as well as SO many useful and helpful resources/references that I have shared with others who help care for my daughter. Beyond the mini consult, I’m finding all the posts super informative and helpful to daily situations with my daughter. A lot of subjects I didn’t even realize there resources/ consultations out there for … like SLEEP! And various therapies. To top it off, Jenn genuinely cares about her clients and has followed up and has shown so much unbiased and caring support !! So yes, I highly recommend thesleepdpt! Especially to first time mamas ☺️ so check out her site for all kinds of helpful info”
