Navigate Sleep without Sleep-Training as New Moms using Science and Attachment.

Details:
Moms are in the line of fire to receive constant criticism, unsolicited advice, and being bombarded by information pulling them in every direction. Sleep is no different and so many recommendations are in fact not evidence-based, not adapted to your family, and outright unsafe. In this 60-minute webinar, we will debunk the reality of Newborn Sleep. We will discuss some of the main recommendations from the sleep community and why they may not be aligned with your family and future baby. Join us so you can enter motherhood prepared and at peace to become the mom you want to be.
