Introducing the Master Sleep Series: A series of seven ticketed online events covering early years sleep, pregnancy and postpartum.

We know parenting isn’t a walk in the park, and we understand that getting out to expert classes on sleep, nutrition, mental health or first-aid can be a bit of a juggle or near impossible (let's be honest). So, we've gathered a bunch of experts in their fields to chat with you about a range of topics that you don’t have time to attend because, you guessed it, you're too busy. And to make things even sweeter, it will all be wrapped up in 1 hour where we *suggest* you wear a robe, bring your tea and sit back and relax.

We invite all to join these events including non-birthing parents, because having two of you tackle our Master Sleep Series is better than one. You’ll receive expert advice and information on your child's needs and milestones from our certified team of professionals in a personal and intimate setting.

We have only 30 tickets available per session (meaning you have the chance to have your burning question answered), so best to get in fast.

She currently balances her consultancy work with parent education at the North Shore Private Hospital in Sydney and is a resident expert for parenting platform, Kiindred.
