Hi! I’m Jen, a Registered Nurse, Internationally Certified Infant and Child Sleep Consultant, mother of three and the founder of Sleep.Thrive.Grow (S.T.G) Consulting.
My passion for sleep started after I had given birth to my first child back in 2012. Extremely naive, I left the hospital thinking I had done the hardest part and as long as I fed and changed my baby the rest would be easy. I was in for a shock!
What I didn’t expect was my son didn’t just sleep
I found myself for the first time in a situation where I was completely out of my depth. The first mum in my group of friends meant I had no one close to me to gather advice or experience from. I needed more information to help me to feel confident in my new adventure of motherhood … my soul depended on it!
I decided it was time to get educated and I made it my mission to learn the foundations of healthy sleep and the sleep requirements of infants, which is where my passion began. With the support of my husband, I began using gentle sleep techniques and I was amazed how well my son responded. I was teaching him to sleep!
