Hi, I’m Natalie and I’m so glad you’re here. I created Mommywise to help parents like you because I understand, first-hand, how chronic sleep-deprivation impacts families and leads to crisis. I know how frightening it feels when you know your baby needs sleep, but you don’t know how to help.
I spent years in fertility clinics, and survived a near-death car accident weeks before I became pregnant with my first child. Years of undiagnosed postpartum depression and anxiety led to a severe sleep disorder, where I was sleeping about 8 hours per week—in 15-20 minute naps. This led to a nervous breakdown when my kids were 1 and 3 years old.
Though this experience was horrific for my entire family, it led to treatment and recovery, which then led to feeling like myself again, and sleeping, and enjoying my family.
Surviving these traumas became my “aha moment”: I decided to devote my life to guiding new parents like you out of crisis.
I launched Mommywise in 2009 as a blog and a volunteer service to help new families with whatever crises they faced. I became a guest speaker in new moms groups and newborn care classes, and shared what I called the “Burst Your Bubble Talk,” where I spoke the truth, and normalized various new parenthood traumas. Through this work, I learned that sleep was the #1 crisis, and that I knew how to help.
In 2010, I began serving as a “sleep consultant,” advising parents how to sleep train their babies by phone and email after an initial in-home consultation. By 2011, I had enough evidence to know that this approach didn’t work for many families, and that live, real-time, in-person sleep training support was the cornerstone of success. From 2011, my team (comprised of the most experienced baby sleep trainers) and I have been coaching parents in person, in their homes.
I recruit, train, and provide ongoing mentorship for a select group of the country’s top Newborn Care Specialists, and only the best of the best are on the Mommywise Team, serving our clients with our exclusive Mommywise Method of In-Home Sleep Training.
With our support, you will sleep again. Your baby will feel rested and happier. You can enjoy parenthood and feel like yourself again! I hope you’ll let us help you.
