Sacramento -- Infant Sleep Basics for Doulas

  • The Root Sacramento, CA United States (map)

More than ever, families are hearing about sleep training (the good, the bad, and the ugly) even far before baby arrives and so much of the information they’re getting is shallow and fear-based. This class instead focuses on anxiety-reduction through reconnecting with parent intuition while still providing some guidelines for what is typical/”normal” in infant biology.

This class covers the physiological basics of infant sleep patterns, normal ranges of expectations around family sleep, how to find quality resources about sleep to share with clients, a basic rundown of “sleep training” and how to approach the questions and concerns parents have around the subject, and overall how to reduce fear and stress around this topic with those we serve. There’s an emphasis on appropriate harm reduction and thoughtful communication around this sometimes challenging topic.

Midwives, Nannies, and Daycare providers are very welcome to attend.
