I'm an Internationally Certified Holistic Sleep Coach, supporting families both locally in New Zealand and Internationally.
I practice very differently in the baby sleep space, in that I take a more Holistic and Integrated approach to sleep.
Topics I can support you with -
infant /child development
normal infant sleep and what to expect
guide you to make sustainable adjustments to your child's sleep
breastfeeding/bottle feeding support and starting/progressing on solids
colic and reflux guidance
safe sleeping and co-sleeping
supporting Dad during this time
Holistic Sleep Coaching is not based on opinions but embedded in the most recent evidence of infant sleep science and child development.
I am an International Association of Infant Massage registered instructor.
I offer a non-judgmental, safe space for parents and babies to relax and interact with each other.
Research has shown incorporating baby massage into your bedtime routine will -
promote a calmer lead up to bedtime
better quality of sleep
as well reduce colic symptoms
Learn how to communicate and interact with your baby through massage.
"I feel so glad to have stumbled across Karla. She is the only sleep consultant in New Zealand that I would trust to never suggest separation or cry based strategies. She is truly gentle, not a wolf in sheep’s clothing like many others. The difference between Karla and all the other sleep consultants we have is that Karla has the knowledge to help uncover the root of problems rather than look at behavioural quick fixes that are unlikely to last and leave the burden for changing a tough situation on a vulnerable baby . Karla understands what is normal for babies, and has helped me bust many myths about baby sleep. I learn a lot following Karla on social media and have found her very friendly in our conversations online."
