A Guide to Restful Sleep in Motherhood for moms to get sleep help and fall asleep faster

A Guide to Restful Sleep in Motherhood

Though most babies sleep through the night by the time they turn one, it’s important for mamas to optimize their sleep, especially in those early days of postpartum where frequent and unpredictable wakings are common. Falling asleep faster and getting into a more restful sleep are important steps to get you more energy to keep up with your little ones.

Research shows sleep deprivation exacerbates symptoms of perinatal mood & anxiety disorders. Five hours of uninterrupted sleep every 24 hours is physiologically imperative for healthy functioning in a normal adult. This isn’t impossible- even with a newborn! 

What’s Included in the Restful Sleep Guide?

This guide dives deeper into the research and importance of protecting your sleep, how to achieve restful sleep, and a worksheet to create and track your own sleep plan.

What other resources do you have to help parents get better sleep?

Members of our community get access to sleep meditations, journal prompts, and other expert-created guides to help you reduce anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and rumination so you can fall asleep faster and get high quality rest.
