A life-changing experience!

Taking this certification has been an amazing experience! We learned about a wide variety of topics which thoroughly prepare us to assist clients in terms of addressing sleep challenges but also supporting parents in terms of their mental health, self care, and attachment-based parenting strategies. I am excited to embark on this new career path with all the knowledge I have gained!

A wealth of knowledge!

This course has been so enriching for myself and my family. I was initially attracted to this sleep course because I knew that anthropological norms and human development were included topics. Yet the emphasis on relationship, emotion, and honoring the parent-child attachment resonated with me so strongly as both a parent and my clinical experiences. I highly recommend!

A powerful and transformative experience. Sleep physician approved!

I have only good things to say about this course. As a sleep physician, I am familiar with many kinds of learning experiences on the field. I have been greatly surprised, transformed and healed here. My medical practice and my own personal journey as a mother have benefited from the comprehensive and in-depth knowledge I have obtained. If you are considering it don't hesitate! It will be worth it.

Empowering, Validating, and Inspiring

Not only has this course has empowered me to grow my business and develop my vision, it has validated my parenting instincts and given me the evidence to back them up. Most of all, it inspired me to help parents support their children using connection and responsiveness, and watching this unfold for them is such an honor. I'm so grateful to Lauren for creating this course!

Life changing course!

I highly recommend this course! It has been life changing, not only for my OT practice and understanding sleep , attachment and child development better, but also for my personal life. It helped me realize things I needed to work on for myself as an individual, and most definitely helped prepare me for when I eventually have children of my own. I use what I've learned daily in my OT practice!

Life Changing!

This course has not only changed my life because it has allowed me to start a career I feel like I am meant to be doing, but it has been transformational to my parenting. It is about so much more than sleep. It will empower you to see your children as people, and will help you understand and respond to their needs in an entirely different way. The perspective presented by all of the specialists an

Best thing I ever did!

SO happy I found Lauren & Isla Grace during a late night of preggo insomnia! I was so nervous about losing sleep like I did with my first knew I didn't want to sleep train. What started as being curious about how to support my new baby's sleep led to a complete career shift. I quit my teaching job to pursue being a Baby-Led Sleep & Wellbeing Specialist full time! Can't recommend enough! Amazing!!

This course completely changed the way I view and parent my own children. I came across Lauren and this course while dealing with postpartum depression/anxiety and the knowledge and insight Lauren shared, especially surrounding emotion, was invaluable. Truly life-changing. I am honoured to be a part of this community. I truly look up to Lauren and will forever be grateful for this opportunity.

  1. I completed the course and started working with families right away. The course content is amazing – very thorough, evidence driven and lots of information and resources. I will admit that I was initially worried that I wouldn’t have enough “structure” to give to clients. But once I actually dove in and started working with families, that is when I realized how great this program really is. The baby-led, family-centred holistic approach allows me to work collaboratively with families and often times it’s the parents that come up with the plans and solutions after I thoroughly assess their personal situation, present the information and options to them. It’s been an eye-opening experience and I truly believe it will help change our pediatric sleep culture.

  2. I came across this program after finishing a sleep training program and realizing that I didn’t feel comfortable doing that, but wasn’t sure there was any other way to do it. Finding Lauren and the Baby Led Sleep Certification has led me to find my passion: parent-child attachment and relationship. I love that the information shared throughout this course is based and supported by experts not only in the sleep field, but related fields as well. I love that now I will be able to support parents to follow their instincts and to be WHAT THEY ARE to their children, their best bet. To change what doesn’t really work for them, not what society makes them feel they need to change. I totally recommend this certification either for personal purposes or for professional ones. I will now not only be supporting clients, but trying everything learned myself when my little one arrives and I got to admit that I feel very secure on supporting my baby’s sleep needs once he’s born, at the same time that I connect and develop a relationship with my baby.

  3. The Baby-Led Sleep & Well-Being Specialist certification course was so helpful! I learned so much information which helps me become the best parent for my daughter as well as help other mothers and children. The variety of education from a holistic approach opened my eyes to helping families find underlying concerns that they may need to be referred out for. This course helped me learn how to advocate for myself and for others. Such a great way to gain important information.

  4. This is an absolutely wonderful and informative course ! I was already a doula working with families for many years, so this has been the perfect addition to my skill set as well as services I am able to offer. Lauren provides so much detail and loads of information to back up the course content. I’ve had to go through different sections of the course multiple times and always find something that I didn’t take away the first time. Lauren is also very supportive and great with communication and answering questions to further your knowledge and clarify concepts. I highly recommend this course for anyone who has a passion for supporting families and has strong beliefs surrounding the parent-child connection.

  5. This course has not only changed my life because it has allowed me to start a career I feel like I am meant to be doing, but it has been transformational to my parenting. It is about so much more than sleep. It will empower you to see your children as people, and will help you understand and respond to their needs in an entirely different way. The perspective presented by all of the specialists and practitioners is so refreshing and I am so honoured to be part of this amazing community.

  6. Absolutely life changing! My parenting is completely transformed for the better, and my whole family is benefitting. I’ve also totally shifted my career path and feel totally prepared with the knowledge that traditional “sleep trainers” in the industry just do NOT have. So thankful to have found Isla Grace and to be affiliated with such a world-class program. Thank you Lauren!!!

  7. Taking this course has enriched my life in so many ways. I have grown as a parent, as a partner and as a practitioner. When working with families in the first year postpartum I found that sleep was a constant need, want and worry. Having experienced this myself after having three babies in four years, I knew there had to be a way to achieve this while also honouring the relationship you have with your children. I am a person who needs evidence based information and practical tools in order to feel that a parenting approach is right for me and my family. This course has everything and more. From lectures given by qualified practitioners to cutting edge research and theory that could be broken down and applied to everyday life in a practical way. While “filling my cup” of knowledge and teaching me the various ways in which to be analytical about sleep and parenting practices in general, this course also taught me how to hold space for the process of learning and growing as a parent, changing patterns of thinking, reacting and engaging in relationships with my children and my partner and most of all how to be set up for success in running a private practice focused on supporting families. I will be forever grateful to Lauren for taking the time and energy to create this amazing course and i am honoured to be part of the Baby-Led Sleep and Well-BeingSpecialist family.

  8. This course completely changed the way I view and parent my own children.

Truly life-changing. I am very honoured to be a part of this community. I truly look up to Lauren and will forever be grateful for this opportunity.

  9. A Huge Thank you !!!
    I am so happy that I decided to take Laurens Sleep and Well being Course. Not only has the information that I have learned helped me to build an even stronger relationship with my son, however it has also helped me with my tween step kids. If you are ‘thinking’ about taking this course – DON’T THINK – JUST DO IT – you won’t regret it!

  10. I came across Lauren’s course looking for more education about baby’s & young children’s normal sleep. I work professionally as a lactation consultant, nurse and parent educator for a children’s mental health agency for ages 0-6 years. I have counselled hundreds of parents over the years and just needed “more” education that confirmed what I already knew, sleep is a neurological developmental milestone and not within our conscious control. I also work with a large population of parents who experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and needed a program that fell in line my personal & professional views and was focused on the parent-child attachment. This Baby-Led Sleep and Wellness Certification program did that and SOOO much more! I learned a ton! I am so thankful that Lauren created this program and is spreading the word that our babies & children aren’t the problem! It’s society’s view about sleep. This program is a MUST for anyone working with young babies and children. Thank you Lauren for all you do and your beautiful heart.

  11. I have grown so much personally and professionally in ways I could not have imagined. I am beyond satisfied with this course. Lauren is a great Sleep Specialist and has her effort she has put into this program for other sleep coaches truly shows. Would 10/10 recommend this certification to anyone.

  12. I am currently enrolled in the course and have only great things to say about it. The things that I have learned has truly allowed me to dive deeper into walking this Mamma-hood walk. I am a way more aware in so many areas of my life. The content is diverse and comes from Lauren plus many other professionals. I 100% recommend the course and look forward to supporting families when I finish! There are a lot of things I did not know and now feel more empowered and assured as a Mom, wife, teacher and just overall as a human. I went into the course with knowing very little about but knew that I needed to take it:) Thanks Lauren for putting in so much work, love and intention 🙂
