Here's What Our Students Had To Say
I loved this course! It has lots of information, all of which has a scientific foundation. It is explained clearly for those who are not keen to read a publication but with all the bibliography it is possible to access easily to the original papers and read them. The course is well organized following a logic on why some things are explained before others. Loved all the contributors too!
The baby-led sleep and wellbeing course is what every person working with families needs. It is comprehensive, all-encompassing and Lauren has put her heart and soul into making this an eye opening experience for the learner. If every parent had access to this information, organized so nicely as it is, our world would become a better place.
As a first time mom, I felt so frustrated by my son's sleep but I knew I never wanted to sleep train. I started doing my own research on alternatives and came across Lauren's sleep course. I was a bit hesitant to make such an investment but it 100% was worth it! It has made me really reflect on my parenting and offered SO much insight to my son's sleep. Lauren and her course are amazing!
What I found most unique about this course is Lauren and her ability to share so graciously and authentically her experiences as a sleep and well-being specialist, a mother, and a woman. In my experience of studying for many years, finding an educator that gives so much of themselves in a helpful and inspirational way is very rare! I loved every minute of this comprehensive and holistic course!
I am so glad I did this course. It has validated my parenting choices and also allowed a pathway to assist mothers as a midwife and neonatal nurse. The course covers everything you need to know to be able to provide holistic care to parents and point them in the right direction, by following their instincts and avoiding misinformation that is profound in this day and age. Highly recommend!
I've always been a firm believer that we all know how to sleep and that's it's not a skill to be learned. There are things that can help up sleep or hinder sleep and I love that this course explores that and helps teach us how to help others improve their child's sleep (and maybe their own!). I'm super excited for this course and I cannot wait to start bringing this information to more families!
The information and teachings in this course exceeded my expectations! It is thorough, comprehensive, and truly an all-encompassing take on infant sleep. Upon receiving my certification, I felt well prepared and confident in my ability to support families. Even with a background in CYC and ECE, this course has had a profound impact on my own parenting as well!
I came here to learn more about baby sleep. I got out with so much more. Lauren approach feels right, is attachment focused, and SO interesting. I loved every week of it. Implementing it right away in my practice as a midwife. Thank you Lauren !
This course was so well rounded and truly looks at all aspects of infant and toddler sleep.

This course is truly amazing and so comprehensive. Even for someone with a background in early childhood development, this course has taught me so much. It was life-changing both in the information it provided and the opportunities it brought forth for me professionally. I highly recommend it!
With this course it was as if I landed exactly in a group of women that approaches motherhood and infant sleep from a motherled perspective. I felt empowered within myself to be amongst them. I now have many tools and lots of knowledge under my belt that will help me personally in my motherhood journey, and also pass on this wisdom to families who seek it. I loved every bit of this course.
I enjoyed every second of this course. I loved that I was able to do it from the comfort of my home. Even if I don't make a dime, I feel I'm a better mother! With this certification, I'm hoping to be a SAHM forever! I'm so happy to be a part of this beautiful community and help mothers put joy back into motherhood. Thank you so much, Lauren!
This course has changed the way I look at normal baby sleep and development. It has completely changed the way I parent my son which is worth it in and of itself. I am beyond excited to bring the knowledge I have gained to other families to allow them to enjoy these early years with their little ones.
This course has changed everything I thought I knew about raising children, not just about sleep. It has been an amazing experience and has brought so much valuable information into our lives. I can't wait to share this knowledge to more parents, hopefully we will manage to change how we, as a society, view children and babies.
This course exceeded all my expectations. Achieving better sleep without sleep training was already a huge passion of mine so when it came time to start working again after having my second daughter, I knew I wanted to shift careers. Finding this course was exactly what I was looking for and more; it has helped me become a better mom AND feel confident to start supporting others. Thank you!!
I loved the research based nature of this course, it helped me to improve my attitude towards infant sleep with my own child and gave me the opportunity to also help others and start a new career from home. Thanks Lauren! Well worth doing if you are looking to start a new career helping others! 🙂 Kelly - @hushabye.bay
This course is one of the best infant sleep courses I've taken! This course provides you with much information and knowledge about sleep and wellness. It took me a year to finish it because there was so much information to process, but I loved every second of the course. It has helped me to be able to better assist my clients in getting to the root of little one's sleep.
Thank you Lauren.! You delivered above & beyond with this course. It took me a while to find the time to finish it and wow you just kept updating and adding. There is SO much information, from such masterminds and internationally renowned experts. It has changed the way I parent and it has changed my career. I can not recommend it enough! This information NEEDS to spread asap. Love! Anouk
I'm a lactation specialist and sleep challenges were a part of my day to day with my patients, I wanted to be able to help them myself, since they were reaching out to sleep coaches who sometimes would give advice that was affecting their feeding journey. Most of the courses I found would have some way of sleep training and I finally found Lauren's course! IT WAS PERFECT, EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED <3
As an early childhood professional, I specialise in behaviour and development. My experience has been in the context of early learning environments so ideas around young children's sleep were limited in my study and training. This course was SO MUCH more than I could of expected, I feel confident, empowered and EDUCATED. So many lead thinkers embedded through the content! Couldn't recommend more
This course exceeded my expectations. I learned so much important and valuable information as a mom and as a specialist to help other families. I am so glad I took the leap and went through with the course. The information I learned changed my life forever in such a positive and meaningful way!
This certification is so thorough! I came out of it with so much more knowledge on normal infant sleep and my eyes were also opened to seeing health in a more holistic way. Lauren has so much passion for sharing this information and she generously does this alongside the many incredible experts. I highly recommend this certification!
I have nothing but great things to say about this certification. Lauren's passion about the subject matter really shines, the whole way through! I have learned so much that I can use in my career, as well as my personal life as a mom. It goes well beyond sleep, and was so much more than I ever expected. I'm so grateful for this opportunity, as well as all of my new knowledge.
This course was more than I expected it to be. Not only have I found my passion in a new career in Baby-led sleep, but this has helped me in my personal life with my own children! I love how thorough the modules are, the wealth of information available, the various experts that provide their own knowledge and all of the valuable information on starting a business. Definitely changed my life.
Lauren has created something truly magical with this course. This community empowers mothers around the world to follow their instinct to parent their unique child. Left behind are outdated societal parenting methods, replaced by an understanding of neurological development rooted in connection. The course has changed my life, as a mother and a human. I am forever grateful I took the leap!
This course is truly life-changing. I signed up for this course wanting help with my daughter's sleep and I walked away with so much more. I am a better parent because of it and I know my daughter's life will be better for it. I also feel I have the skills to build a business that helps others and also allows me greater freedom to build the family and life that I want.
I wish all parents were required to take this course! Not only has this changed my life as a mother, but this course has helped me build a small business supporting other families. Gaining this certification has allowed me to grow confidence as a mother but also empower other mothers who want to honor their children’s need for connection and nurturing. Truly recommend this course, times a million!
This course aligned with my holistic and gentle parenting approach. It shifted my expectations of what a baby should have been doing and allowed me to reprogram what was "normal" and not "normal". I felt empowered to trust that parents know their baby best, and to advocate for what feels natural to them. I look forward to helping other families with this more gentle approach to sleep & parenting.
I cannot give enough gratitude and praise for what Lauren has provided in this course. Being a first time mum I learnt things that I had never thought of or knew I needed to be aware of. She has opened up how I connect and hold space for my family and how I have moved through matrescence.
I am a different person before and after learning the content of this course. Not only has it provided me with a new career, but it has changed the way that I parent, and the way that I view myself & my children. There has been a beautiful ripple effect. I only wish that I had taken this course sooner! It has changed my life and I am forever grateful to Lauren for developing this.
Thank you Lauren for everything you do. This incredible course you have created is one of the most comprehensive and educational courses I have completed. It has truly changed how I support families. I would highly recommend this course to anyone already engaged working with families or to anyone thinking about supporting families. As a MCHN + Midwife I am blown away with what I have learnt.
I really loved all the content of this course. I learned so much and it transformed my parenting experience. I feel well equipped to support families and also to start my business. The business section is very useful and comprehensive.
I am an licensed/registered Occupational Therapist. Never have I completed a CE course that has left me feeling this empowered and enlightened. Lauren is beyond knowledgeable. She has created a powerful team of educators and resources. I truly feel that, by completing this course, I am now free to fully embrace the best version of myself as, mom and healthcare provider.
If your are looking for a course to become a Sleep Consultant, this is not for you. This course is beyond any Sleep Registration can offer you. This will help you to understand your parenting, how to enhance the relationship between parents and children in a deeper level.

This course has truly changed my life. Not just as a mother but as someone who is passionate about helping other parents. This course gives you everything you need to know to support parents through any potential sleep challenges while prioritizing their attachment relationship. Lauren is so incredibly passionate and knowledgeable - I can't imagine learning from anyone else. Thank you Lauren!
This course validated everything I have instinctively known about working with baby’s ( as well as my own) It’s giving me resources, language , studies .. etc to be able to work with families and justify my methods. I implore professionals to study this content , because it’s essential to give families biologically normal sleep and attachment . A peaceful life starts at birth.
This course is full of so much information. I've been working in the field of early intervention for 26 years and wished I had taken this course years ago. It has given me so much to add to my practice and of course if I want to start my our practice. Thank you Lauren for all the work and dedication you put into the program.
Finding this course not only changed my career for the better; but it has totally changed me as a Mom and Wife. Feeling validated in my parenting choices and beliefs and empowered to follow my instincts is invaluable. I am truly grateful for the knowledge, and evidence shared in this course that I can now share with the families I will work with. I have truly found a job that is my passion.
This course has truly changed my life. Every family should have access to and understand true information around biologically normal infant and toddler sleep. It has transformed my relationship with my daughter and empowered me to help other families. The attachment focused approach is what every family needs.
I took this course thinking I would open my own business but instead it gave me the confidence to apply for a job I knew I was perfect for! I’ve been working for Famille et petite enfance in NB for only a month and I feel right at home. They have the same quantities and philosophies as this course which is perfect for me! I really hope I can help families feel more confident and empowered as well
The course made my natural instincts feel "seen", that it's not only ok to embrace the natural way of parenting, it's what's needed in the world. And that there is a huge community that feels the same way. If you're looking to grow, become braver, and radically deepen your relationship with yourself, your children and your family, you have come to the right place. This work is so needed.
I would like to thank you very much for a great course. Thanks to him, I learned much more than anywhere else. My help to my parents moved a few levels further. I am grateful to have come across you and had the opportunity to study the course. My study of sleep does not end and I will return to the course.

Lauren's course was the medicine I needed. As a new mom seeking information to validate my instincts, I was blow away by how comprehensive the certification course was.

There is a lot to cover, and Lauren has provided us with so many different resources and experts to learn from. It's amazing! Thank you Lauren!
There is an answer for every question in this course. You are not only learning from Lauren, who is the most genuine individual, but you are learning from a community of infant and child experts. The focus on development and attachment gives you the perspective you need to engage and support families, but also to feel confident in doing the work in your own home. Bonus material is added often.
I am unbelievably thankful that I stumbled upon Lauren's work. After scouring the internet, this certification was the one able to complete my Sleep Physiology Ph.D. experience. It gave me the additional perspective to become even better at supporting families. This course actually provides information and skills. But more importantly, you will join a unique and caring community.
I can't say enough about this course! It truly transformed my relationship to my son, my parenting mindset, and now my prospects as a business owner. There is so much knowledge shared here that I believe EVERY single parent should be educated on, and I'm saddened that we are not taught this stuff in the mainstream infant sleep culture. Truly a gift to take this course!
This is the type of course you take where you will not be the same person you were before you took it. This course is so brilliantly designed that it will shift the way you parent, educate, care-give, etc for the better. Lauren has done an amazing job creating a comprehensive course that includes experts in a multitude of fields of pediatric health and buisness. Just go for it!!
This course is truly life changing and has absolutely changed my work as an occupational therapist. The content not only makes sense from a scientific perspective, but also from an instinctual one. The holistic approach captures all aspects of family life that can impact infant sleep, and enables those who complete the certification to provide truly informed support to their clients.
I loved Laurens course so much. It gave me everything I needed to confidently start my business. I got inspired in so many ways. And the best of all: Investing in this course transformed my relationship to my son. I love being a mama and I feel so called to help more first time moms out there who are anxious, stressed and have lost access to their intuition. Thanks Lauren for everything!♥️
I have loved learning from Lauren and all the specialists she has called on the course. The information is so wide and varied, with all the resources to read and the videos to watch. There is no pressure on timings, and the final assignment working with clients really gives you that boost in confidence that you need to start your business. The business section is very helpful too.

You will be sure to complete the course feeling empowered, inspired, and ready to tackle the current narrative around sleep and parenting in such a loving and supportive way.
Lauren does a phenomenal job throughout this course. This course gave me so much more confidence in what I already do to support clients. She brings in true specialists who actually know what they are talking about when it comes to attachment, infant sleep, bed sharing and so much more.
This course is so beautifully put together, and truly teaches a wholistic and evidence-based approach that acknowledges both baby and parents humanity and attachment needs. I love what I am learning, and know that the information will be actively put to use in the field afterwards.
This course taught me so much, both professionally and personally. I feel so much more confident and empowered in my decisions as a mother and I am so excited to share my knowledge with families. I think every parent deserves to feel validated in their parenting choices and this course has done that and more for me. Thank you so much Lauren for creating this amazing community!

Deciding to take this course was one of the best decisions I have made for my parenting journey as well as my professional one.

I cannot wait to share my knowledge in order to empower other mamas to make informed decisions for their families. Thank you, Lauren!
Hands down the best course ever. Thanks to Lauren, I am now a much more confident parent. Learning about normal infant sleep, infant brain development and attachment has been so empowering. I now understand my daughter and everything she is going through way better, which has helped me to be more understanding and to respond better to all her needs.
I started this course with the intention of gaining a better understanding of attachment theory but it was so much more! This course provided me with resources to help me with my determined toddler, completely changing who I want to be as a mother. Mix in an incredible business module that not only pushed me to start up my own business but also provided me with the tools for it to be successful.
Great course with a huge range of topics and experts. It is well thought-out, in-depth, and very interesting. Lauren is a passionate instructor and has created a welcoming and supportive community. It has impacted my parenting, my growth as a person, and how I see things as a trained teacher. I strongly recommend it. It was life-changing for me and my family.
This course is filled to the brim with information and knowledge. I would never have expected it to be so thorough and it truly equipped me to start a business as a sleep and wellbeing specialist with confidence. The way Lauren has designed the course makes it really easy to follow and the fact that you can do it on your own time is amazing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course from beginning to end - I found every single module very interesting and informative! The structure of the course is also perfect and very well suited if you are a mama. I listened to a lot of the modules in the dark while I was feeding or holding my daughter to sleep! I learnt so so much - not just about sleep but also about how to start my own business.
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!
Taking the BLS certification course was definitely the best decision I made. I have learned a lot about not only sleep but also about attachment and parenting. This course is very complete and very helpful in setting and acquiring realistic expectations regarding how a baby really sleeps.
I embarked in this journey as a doula and as a mother who knows how hard it is to follow your instinct even if everything and everyone are against that, so I decided to arm myself with knowledge to fence off the old wives tales attacks to my and my clients parenthoods. This course was enlightening, heartwarming and unique. Nature and science intertwine, giving birth to your confidence to be better
Lauren put together beautifully: parenting, attachment, sleep and love. Sleep is NOT a one-fits-all and as new parents there can be so many reasons our babies/children aren't sleeping beginning with our mental health. The baby-led sleep approach is gentle on babies and on parents. I highly recommend this course for ANYONE working with new parents and children.
This course and community is incredible. The subjects and factual resources provided are fascinating and in excellent detail. Having multiple experts from each area explain their perspectives is so insightful. I can definitely apply these learnings to help my family, as well as make a difference for families to help their child be the best version of themselves in this world.
This course is truly incredible and inspiring for anyone wanting to make a change in their career path. The amount of information not only from Lauren but everyone involved in providing videos from all different fields of study is what really brought this course full circle. I can't thank Lauren enough and am excited to launch my new career!
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!
Lauren's Baby-Led Sleep and Well-Being Certification is AMAZING. Lauren has put so much time, energy, knowledge and passion into this certification and it shows. Not only has it given me the tools to help families, it has also helped me in my personal life as a mother. I would recommend this certification 1000x over!
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.
As a registered child psychologist and an already certified sleepconsultant I was looking for a course that would touch on more than the basics. The Baby-led Sleep & Well-being Specialist course met my expectations. I absolutely loved the content regarding attachment. It totally matches my approach to sleep and infant & child development!
This course is incredibly comprehensive. I feel confident that I can be thorough with clients and cover all aspects which may be impacting sleep. I know I will be referring back to the material for a long time. Truly, this is about so much more than sleep. The information curated and presented by Lauren, is about building deep parent - child relationships. A great gift to share with parents!
This course was more than I could have ever asked for! Not only has it changed my relationship with my daughter, but it has completely shifted my outlook on life in general! It is much more than a sleep course. This has provided me with profound knowledge that I hope to put out into the world in a unique way to support other families and help create the ripple effect that has started here!
This course has brought so much to my life! It’s empowering, motivating, extremely interesting and relevant! Lauren’s powerful messages are applicable, encouraging and timely for any parent, caregiver, educator, child-related helping profession...at any stage! A million Thank You’s Lauren...I am eager to get started on my business, yet I don’t want it to end! Outstanding experience!!!!!
As an IBCLC, I have fielded a lot of questions about how to manage sleep with lactation - and this course brought in all of the truly evidence based information I needed to be able to really truly support families! I have seen all of this information translate into more sleep in my own life, and have seen it help countless families do the same. This. Course. Is. EVERYTHING.
The Baby-Led Sleep & Well Being Specialist Certification Course is full of so much incredible information that will transform the way you look at, interact with and share a relationship with your child. It has been so empowering as a parent to have a better understanding of what is NORMAL for my baby! I can't wait to change lives by sharing this information with families. Thank you Lauren!
I took this course after many nights of anxiety and googling about sleep. This course provided me with so much information that not only is my son sleeping better, but I am happier, more confident and happy to be a parent. I am so excited to share this information with other mamas out there!
This course has been tremendously helpful in gaining knowledge in order to not only become the best parent for my daughter but also to be able to help other families. The variety of education in a holistic approach is so beneficial to help be determine if families need to be referred out to another specialist.

Life-changing. I had been dreaming about taking this course for a couple of years and I'm so glad I finally made the investment. It has changed the way I parent and teach (so much of it I wish would be taught to educators!), for the better...and has given me the confidence and the tools necessary to turn this passion into a side/part-time job that I've been yearning for. Thank you Lauren!
