I called Janelle at Mama Coach when my daughter was up 5-7 times per night (awake for 15-60 minute time slots). She would only take two mini naps (15-30 minute). I was exhausted and desperate for help. Janelle was supportive, encouraging and non judgmental. She made a plan that was easy to follow and understand. Most importantly within a week my daughter was only waking up once at midnight and once at 4:30/5. She started napping 2 hours in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon. Now two weeks later she’s going to bed awake, without a soother and without crying, sleeping until 4/5 am! She’s noticeably happier and well rested. So thankful!

We just finished our first week of our new sleep plan with the support of Janelle . We had quite a few of the little pieces before but got overwhelmed with all the different opinions and information out there and couldn’t pin point what we needed to change to be more successful. We were plagued by short naps and had the odd night where babe fought bedtime. With Janelle’s help we were able to make some changes in babe’s schedule. After just one week at least half of babe’s naps are longer than 45 mins and our nights have improved. Janelle was quick to respond to questions and gave us a ton of good information for the continuation in our sleep journey.

I recently updated my CPR with Janelle, which was the second workshop I have taken with her. I would highly recommend any of Janelle’s classes! Janelle is incredibly insightful, non judgemental, and has the kindest heart. All of her courses are up to date with best practice guidelines. Janelle is always willing to help and a fantastic resource for our community. Thank you Janelle!!

I recently did the sleep training and I couldn’t have done it without the help and support from Janelle, I would highly recommend her to everyone struggling, the support is 100% there. I went from getting 3-4 hours of broken sleep a night and my baby would not nap in her crib ever, had to be held, her support made me stay consistent and within even the first week she now sleep 11-12 hours through the night and will nap in her crib for 1-2 hours twice a day. This has been an extreme life changer from me and my only regret is not having her for my first horrible sleeper of a child! Anyone who uses Janelle will not be disappointed!

We had our private prenatal class with Janelle last week and I am so happy we chose to do so!! Janelle was super sweet and totally down to earth about everything. She was so flexible with her hours and was able to add us to her schedule with less than a week notice and only 3 weeks until our due date!! She was very informative, answered all of our questions, and covered a lot of important material. I am excited to continue to learn from Janelle even after our baby is born!!

People ask me how things are going with my first baby. For the first time in this journey, I can confidently say, “GREAT!” That confidence is all thanks to Janelle. Within a few nights our baby was sleeping 7pm to 7am. As parents we got our evening time together back. With adequate sleep I became a more patient mother. Even with nighttime feeds, he just goes back to sleep. The quality of life we received from the help and support of Janelle is truly priceless. Janelle, thank you for the kindness, understanding, and support. You created a safe, judgement-free space for us to consult on what was best for our child.
