Parent Support Services

Preparing for baby’s arrival? Have our resident baby expert come to your home and discuss all things baby! You can learn about any and all of the following based on your family’s needs: Nursery set up and organization, reviewing products for your baby, discussing your postpartum options for care and education needs.
There comes a point when it may be time to help your little one learn the skills to sleep through the night. Our integrative, holistic sleep consultant provides help, education, and guidance to support families in learning how to best help their child sleep…and sleep well!   Your In-home consultation will include a sleep plan tailored to your baby, a follow-up phone call, and email support until your goals have been reached.

  • In-home help with one of our sleep trainers – Work with one of our sleep trainers, who will discuss various sleep methods and help you come up with a plan that feels most comfortable for your family! Sleep trainers work in the home with you and can do days or nights.
  • Premier sleep support – Ask about this service to work with our resident sleep expert. Working with our consultant includes both an in-home consultation and in-home support to implement your plan. Due to the demand for our sleep expert’s time, please ask about availability and pricing.
Did you know, there are steps you can take with your newborn to start teaching healthy sleep habits from the very beginning?  We will meet in your home and discuss important concepts that can help set up your baby and your family for successful sleep as baby grows! We will go over key sleep concepts, the science of newborn sleep, how to begin teaching healthy sleep habits, and how to easily implement them into your daily life. You’ll learn how to swaddle, learn techniques to soothe a crying baby, and learn how to best get through each day. This consult is typically 2 hours and you’ll feel more confident, more educated, and more prepared to help the new member of your family to begin to sleep and sleep well!  Included in this consultation is a 2-3 hour home visit, one 15-minute phone call when needed to continue helping with working on healthy sleep habits, and 1-3 short emails when needed.
Are you dealing with an inconsolable infant, fussy, hard to feed or put down?  It may be time to ask for a little help! Our resident baby expert will come to your home and spend about 4 hours with you, to help determine what we can do to help your little one.  In the 4 hour session, we will talk, troubleshoot, and discuss techniques that can be helpful. The consult includes a 4 hour in-home consult, one 30-minute follow-up phone call to answer and help with any concerns or questions, as well as 2 weeks of email support.
Let’s face it – There are times when dealing with your toddler or older child is difficult. Every child is different and what works for one parent won’t always work for you and your child. As a parent, it can be hard to know how or what to do when dealing with a challenging behavioral issue, say fighting bedtime, running away from a parent causing serious safety issues, and the list goes on!  Bringing in a parent consultant to help you deal with the issue and help you better understand your child brings great value to your family and its happiness. Your consultation includes a 90-minute in-home consultation with a formal plan emailed within 48 hours of your consult, one 30-minute phone call within a few days to go over everything you have implemented, and email support up to 4 weeks after implementation.
