If we could change one thing about what we do, we would change the term “sleep training”. When people hear about sleep training, they automatically think they will be forced to let their child cry. As your sleep guide, our mission here at TCCA is to find the right method of sleep plan that suits each unique family and situation. We don’t practice with one program or one method. We educate on many methods and our goal always is for our clients to choose a method that is presented to them, that they are comfortable with, one that suits their child’s personality and temperament. We will offer our clients the guidance and support that is needed to make it through the process.

Once you have graduated from The Cradle Coach Academy, the yearly requirements to continue your membership will be to take two new continuing education course, and maintain your insurance and cpr certification.

Nope! Some students have waited, other students have launched, and some students have decided to use their certification to get hired at other postpartum care companies.

Being a Sleep Consultant has easily been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. After I experienced the life change of going through the process myself with my first child, I knew that a sleeping baby can literally change your entire experience as a parent. It sets the tone for your family, and brings so much peace to your home.

I love that I get to help parents experience this for the first time, and I love witnessing them getting back in control of their lives. My favorite types of emails are the ones telling me that mom and dad went on a date for the first time in months. Or that they are actually spending the whole evening together after the little ones are sound asleep by 7pm!

Becoming a Sleep Consultant is also so rewarding because I can do it all from the comfort of my home, and still help support our family. I love that I can impact and make a difference in others lives, while still being present and available with my family. Ultimately, doing this changes lives, and more than the convenience or financial benefit, that makes it all worth it to me. I am so grateful that I can be apart of bringing life, joy, and SLEEP into more homes.

With three kids under the age of three I NEVER imagined that it would be possible to have a “job” and still be a stay at home mom. A job where I could pursue my passions, contribute to our family finances, and where I did not need to sacrifice my role raising our children. Being a sleep consultant is THAT job.

I get to talk with other Moms and Dads about their little ones and help them to gain the great nights sleep their babies — and they — so desperately need, I make a little extra money to contribute to our family, and I don’t have to compromise being a stay-at-home Mom. The sleep deprived start of life with a new baby is SO hard, but it doesn’t have to last forever.

Just like learning to sit, stand, walk and talk, babies learn to be great sleepers. I love helping parents gain the knowledge and confidence to teach their littles to be great sleepers.

Maeghan S

When I first became a sleep consultant, I was still working from home part time while also being a full time Mom, at home, with my then 7 month old daughter. I became a sleep consultant so I could bring others the same happiness, routine, and sleep that I gained when I sleep trained my daughter.  It turned in to so much more than that.

Not only was I able to literally change people’s lives (sometimes even saving their marriage!), I was also able to contribute financially to all of the “extras” I wanted for my family. (That was just the cherry on top!) 

Outside of raising my own children, I have never felt so fulfilled as I am when I get an email from a client I’ve worked with telling me about their child’s sleeping successes and the personal benefit they’ve received from it: their postpartum depression has gone away, they are able to spend quality time with their spouses, their child is happier and healthier than they’ve ever seen them – the list goes on. I am so incredibly grateful for this opportunity and for what I get to do on a daily basis.
