Motherhood is an incredible life changing journey that changes how we look, how we feel and who we are. But nothing can prepare you for just how hard it can be physically, mentally and emotionally. Then there’s the pressures of modern parenting such as working, paying the bills, relationships, keeping up with the latest parenting trends and that all important self-care we’re told about but in reality never get the chance to do. The information we’re given is overwhelming and in the fog its hard to pick out the good advice from the bad. I am passionate about supporting parents at this challenging time and giving them accurate, evidence based information so they can make the right decisions for their family. 

I’m qualified to deliver antenatal education and movement classes to pregnant women and couples. I also run postnatal education and movement classes which provides continuous information & support to mums and their little ones until they’re 18 months old.    

Here’s my story….I was working long hours in a demanding full time job whilst juggling an equally demanding pre-schooler who had fought sleep from birth. I wont lie,  being a mum was not how id imagined it would be and something had give. So I found the help I needed to get my son to sleep and the transformation to our family within 3 days was incredible. We had more energy, I had a happy child and I became the mum I wanted to be all from us simply being well rested. I even went on to have another baby who slept like a dream as “I did it once and did it right” from the start which changed my whole experience of being a mum the second time round.

The transformation to my family has driven me to help and support other families get the rest they need and empowering them to be the parents they want to be.

My methods are gentle, age appropriate and tailored to your situation as every child is unique. I work Monday to Saturday including evenings. Call me now for your free 15 minute consultation, I promise you won’t regret it.

I’m based in Nottingham for 1 to 1 consultations, face to face within a 30 minute drive. Facetime, Skype and phone consultations mean there are no limits when it comes to your location and I work with families all over the world this way.

Packages

One-to-One Sleep Solutions Package

This is the most popular package, and consists of:-

  • A preliminary evaluation. This is a comprehensive questionnaire about your child’s sleep habits and routines that you’ll fill out prior to our meeting. (Having this information in advance helps us make the most of our time together).
  • A private, 90 minute consultation in the comfort of your own home, or via Skype/FaceTime or telephone, where we’ll discuss strategies, troubleshoot possible problems and learn how to address bedtime, naptime, nightwakings or any other specific issues you might be dealing with.
  • A detailed, fully customized sleep plan, that I will prepare for you after the conclusion of our meeting.
  • Four follow up telephone calls during the first week following the consultation. These follow-up calls last about 15 minutes, and we’ll use this time to deal with any setbacks you might be having or answer any general questions.
  • One week of e-mail support. After your four follow-up telephone calls have been used, you still have an additional week of e-mail support where you can email me once daily, excluding Sundays I will always aim to reply to your queries within one working day.

The total cost for the One-to-One Sleep Solutions package for a baby or toddler in a cot is £245 by Skype/Facetime/Phone. If your child is in a bed this package is £265 due to the complexity of the plan.

Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Nottingham (further distances can be accommodated with additional travel expenses– please call for details)

New-born – Get it right from the Start Package

This is a comprehensive training plan helping parents of new-borns train their little ones to have fabulous sleep skills from a very young age and can be implemented from day one! Getting an early start in establishing healthy sleep habits is a huge advantage for both babies and their parents. With this package, you will learn everything you need to teach your baby to be an independent sleeper right from the beginning. It is a fantastic gift package for new parents too and consultations can take place before or after the baby has arrived. (gift certificates available and can be posted direct to the lucky couple if required) It consists of:-

  • A private 60 minute telephone or in-home consultation. We will discuss how to establish a healthy sleep plan for your new-born, discussing sleep needs, schedules for feeding, naps and bedtime, how to help teach your baby the difference between day and night, creating the right sleeping environment, strategies to encourage sleep, when to expect your baby to be sleeping longer stretches, and common sleep issues that can be easily avoided.
  • A detailed sleep plan. If you are expecting, the gentle, caring techniques in your sleep plan will teach you how to create an independent sleeper from day one, and will give you a flexible guide to quickly bring some routine, when baby arrives, to a time of your lives which can otherwise become quite overwhelming. If you baby has already arrived, your sleep plan will be fully customized for your family.
  • One follow-up phone calls. If you are following a sleep plan from the beginning then you will find your baby is naturally developing wonderful independent sleep skills, you may find you have some questions so we will schedule a telephone call within 2 weeks of the baby’s birth just in case (if you are expecting) or within 2 weeks of consultation (if you already have your baby at home). These calls typically last about 15 minutes.
  • Two follow-up e-mails I will give you my personal email address so you can email me on two occasions with any questions or concerns any time within the first 3 months of your baby’s birth or our consultation. After 3 months you can purchase another week of email support at any time should you need it .

Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Nottingham, (further distances can be accommodated – please call for details)

The Refresher

It is not uncommon for babies and toddlers who have been taught to be great sleepers to ‘test the boundaries’ from time to time. This option is for parents who have met with me in the past, but are looking for a ‘refresher’. This is a popular option for past clients who have recently had a new baby – or who are expecting in the near future. It consists of:-

  • A private, 60 minute consultation, usually by phone or by Skype, during which we’ll use to discuss any particular challenges you are having with your child. Since we’ve already worked together, a full hour is usually more than enough time to cover all your questions and concerns.
  • Optional 2x follow-up emails that you can use to send me any additional questions that might come up as you get things back on track. I’ll aim to respond to your email within one day.

The total cost for the Refresher Package 60 minute consultation is £95, with 2x optional emails £125

Testimonials

I was SUPER sceptical about a sleep coach but I figured I cannot do one more night where Leo is rolling around the living room at 10pm, one more night where I end up sleeping in his room again because of frequent night wakings... I figured the price means I’m invested, and it’s about the price of a spa day or a night or two away and yet this buys you permanent night after night good sleep and your evenings back...

I nearly cancelled and backed out the night before we started I was so worried Leo would scream for hours and hate what I was doing to him!

BUT... I couldn’t have been more wrong, Leo loved the new routine, night one he settled in 20 min without any crying and slept for 7 SOLID hours, he’s had his naps in his cot his night sleeps in his cot (which is no longer treated like I’ve put him on a bed of nails).

One full week now and he’s been down at 7/7.30pm every night a handful of night wakings that have been quickly resolved and I have had my evenings back and 7 full nights sleep and if that’s not worth the investment I dunno what is, in fact it’s toooooooo cheap in my view...

That is my verdict on Sleep Coaching with Emma at Little Lullabies and you all know I speak the truth!

Hi Emma,

Thank you so much for helping us to sleep train our baby by helping her to learn to settle herself. It’s amazing to have our evening back and to be able to spend a little more time with our eldest son. So we are all a lot happier and less snappier! 😂

Emma was really structured in her approach, doing a really thorough assessment of what my daughters current patterns were and where we could do with a helping hand.
She helped with the pre nap and bedtime routines and above all cutting the night feeds...before my daughter was waking every 2 hours...and now sleeps through the night (11 hours).
I was and still am anti crying where I felt it wasn’t necessary so I modified what Emma gave as a schedule (already super gentle) even further and instead of 1 week it took 3, and I gradually left my daughters room over the course of that time.
I can now put her down in her bed, kiss her goodnight and shut the door until the morning.

Emma has been a huge support and I’m massively grateful - couldn’t have done it without her.

I was at my wits end by the time I called Emma. My baby was 9 weeks old and refused to sleep unless he was on me. I’d wear him in the sling for all naps during the day and then have hours of him screaming at night, only for him to wake up a couple of hours after I’d finally got him to sleep in his crib. So I’d spend the rest of the night with him on my chest and me sat in a chair.
Fast forward to today, he’s 13 weeks old, settles himself to sleep in his crib with very little intervention from me and sleeps a solid 11-12 hours a night, every night!
Emma literally saved my sanity and my little boy is so much happier now that he’s getting the sleep he needs. Thank you!

It’s been a godsend working with you, I can’t believe how such small changes have made such a massive impact on our lives. We had our first full nights sleep last night (7-6) which was so desperately needed. He his unwell at the moment and has slept a lot today as well and if I’m honest I think that might be why he’s slept through last night but still, it was great and in general he is so good at himself to sleep in a few minutes which was the biggest battle with him. You have been so wonderful to work with, so understanding right from the beginning. You have also been so encouraging and your ‘magic 10 minutes’ has been the making of his ability to fall to sleep on his own. We are all now a lot happier with having more sleep and not having the daily and nightly battle to get him to go to sleep. He now gets lots of really decent sleep and I have my evenings back for me time. The routine is now so easy to do anywhere and by anyone and my family have been impressed by his new skill when looking after him while I’ve been at work especially considering he was known as the child that never sleeps 😂 I cannot recommend the programme enough, to any parents, not only in desperate need of sleep but the incredible skill I have now taught my baby which makes life in general so much easier and calmer. Thank you so very much, you have changed our lives for the better! Charlotte xxx Charlotte Beatty

enough for all her help, support and advice over the past few weeks. I was quite quickly reaching breaking point after 8 months of no sleep, but her guidance has completely changed that! In 2 short weeks, I've gone from having a baby who wouldn't sleep anywhere apart from on me and was waking 6+ times a night, to a baby who quickly and happily now self settles and sleeps through the night!
Emma has been a complete professional from our very first chat - she is very easy to talk to and put me at ease straight away. It was particularly nice that she was able to offer her own experiences and reassure me that this was something which lots of people go through and manage to overcome.
I've never felt alone during this journey, Emma has constantly checked in to see how things are going and has been genuinely interested in and excited about our triumphs.
I can't express enough how much this has improved things for us...my baby has learnt useful life skills and now has positive sleeping habits and I have the energy to really enjoy him and his brothers.
I'm always telling my mum friends about our miracle sleep plan and will definitely be recommending Emma to family and friends!

From very happy Mummy Kayleigh Harwood

I approached Emma to hopefully help me with my 4 month old daughters sleep. My daughter, Sydney was a “cat-napper” sleeper, which I had to rock to sleep every time I assumed she was tired. This was fine for a few weeks but soon realised I couldn’t keep this up and needed help.
I rang Emma, to which she was lovely over the phone and we then arranged to meet to discuss a plan for Sydney’s Sleep.
We agreed to meet, which I was taken a back of how lovely she was to me. We discussed Sydney’s sleeping pattern and then Emma talked me through the plan which I then followed to the letter.
I was a little apprehensive to begin with but then soon realised that as more I got into the programme, how easy Sydney fell to sleep and how easy I could follow the programme.
I have now been following the programme for 3 weeks and Sydney now sleeps un aided and sleeps through the night. Nap times in the day have become regular and no “rocking” to sleep. This has allowed me to catch up on my sleep and now feel so much happier. We have a Happy home.
Through out the programme I had constant questions, to which Emma was there to help and put me on the right track.
Thank you for your time and patience with me. We truly appreciate everything you have helped us with.
So happy we found, as we call you “The sleep lady”
Thank you Emma.
