Sarah McIlwham

Becoming a mother was a transformative experience for me. My own birth and postpartum experiences awakened a passion inside me to support families as they bring their babies into the world, and navigate their own postpartum experiences in the ways that work best for them. I have a postgraduate degree in microbiology and a background in the sciences, with a keen interest to understand how things work! Through personal and professional experience I have come to believe the current culture and illusion of the “Super Mom” is an impossible standard, and a very damaging concept that can cause such unnecessary hardship and stress in the life of a family. I believe new parents should listen to their instincts when it comes to all aspects of parenting, including sleep. As an infant sleep educator, I strive to help parents understand the biological realities of infant sleep, the importance of touch and responsive parenting during the day and night, and to find ways for the whole family to get more rest, in a way that works for them!
