Infant Sleep Education

Infant Sleep Education 

$50

September 8th 10:30a-12:30p

Join Sarah McElvain, LMSW, WHC, CD, for a 2-hour interactive Infant Sleep Education Workshop. The class will include facilitated instruction as well as an open forum discussion and Q&A for families. 

Cultural expectations for sleep are often at odds with biological infant development. Sleep education is distinctly different from any form of sleep training, as Sarah's focus is to support the parents through the creation of a nurturing mindset and implementation of lifestyle shifts rather than to change the baby.

Sarah helps parents understand infant development from a biological and evolutionary perspective; this information, combined with the right mindset, empowers parents to facilitate shifts in lifestyle to optimize rest and embrace nighttime parenting without the use of sleep training. She uses a combination of emotional support, practical knowledge, developmental science, interpersonal neurobiology research, and attachment theory to support families who want to avoid using behavioral modification to change the baby. She works as a “family sleep doula” to troubleshoot infant/toddler sleep challenges, help parents maintain or restore optimal health, find their parenting groove, and tune in to what they know is best for their baby and their family.
