I am the founder and lead sleep instructor here at The Cradle Coach Academy. I am a family-first mama, goal-oriented entrepreneur, to-do list extraordinaire, avid dreamer and unshakeable optimist. I am passionate about training and educating women who have a deep desire to give families the gift of sleep, or to touch the life of a new mother by walking alongside her.
You might have had a positive experience with sleep training that ultimately changed your life. Or maybe you had the world’s best newborn care specialist that allowed you to thrive during your child’s first few weeks of life. That experience sparks something in us mothers. We feel like we’ve been handed this secret we have to share with as many tired mothers as we can…because it’s THAT life changing.
This passion is what motivates you. It’s the secret sauce that creates a vibrant and fulfilling career and ultimately what pushes you to finally take the leap and help others by becoming a certified professional.

“I got motivated from Melissa since when i read her story! Me, same as her, is a mom who sleep trained her baby by herself and later one the babies of my friends and relatives. So i trusted her since that moment. Being a sleep consultant in my country it is not easy at all. It’s a new field and it need a lot of work to show people that there is a way to make them to sleep. But i am not afraid at all. I am sure i can do it because in this programme i got all the information that i need for the sleep of the babies and toddlers, how to deal with their parents and how to launch my own business. So, i have already started to do that and i am very satisfied. I recommend it.”
“I absolutely loved the TCCA sleep certification course and enjoyed every minute of it. In the beginning, I felt as if I wasn’t quite sure if being a sleep consultant was for me but the course gave me the confidence that I can do this! Why not me! Thank you very very much for these few months! Not only have I become certified but I have also learned a lot about myself throughout this journey, gained confidence and felt empowered for what’s ahead.”
“Becoming a student of TCCA was the best thing I could have possibly done! At the time of signing up, I had a 2 year old and was 4 months pregnant, so a lot of people thought I was crazy! Fast forward 9 months and I am now fully certified, with a bunch of happy volunteer clients eager to share my name in their circles, and am ready to launch my business. I couldn’t be more grateful to Melissa for her constant support and for creating such a comprehensive and affordable program that has given me the tools and confidence I need to get going. TCCA has been an absolute blessing, so if you’re a Mama’s like me who is searching for a new home-based career that is easily worked around family life and makes a real difference in the lives of fellow Mama’s, look no further! I honestly cannot recommend TCCA enough.”
“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.
I love helping parents gain the knowledge and confidence to teach their littles to be great sleepers.”
“I LOVED TCCA and all it has to offer during the course and the community it has after the certification is completed. 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!”
“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 and TCCA was able to provide me with all the training I needed to do it all successfully. I love helping families reach their goals that they set out for their child.
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.”
“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.”
