A UK qualified nurse, midwife, and health visitor currently registered with the International Maternity and Parenting Institute, Julie qualified to be a Sleep Coach through The Gentle Sleep Coach Program (the most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available).
Julie’s practice is informed by her study of current parenting practises and psychological studies. She emphasises the importance of internationally respected research from qualified academic bodies, working with empathy and passion for those under her care. Julie has completed the Infant Mental Health Course provided by the University of Toronto, which is invaluable to Julie’s training as a Gentle Sleep Coach.
A regular contributor on Dubai Eye, and Virgin Radio in Dubai and also published in many local publications Julie is a well-known expert in The UAE regarding sleep health.
Julie is a lifelong learner, so we are proud to share her experiences and qualifications; however, the most significant praise from clients relates to Julie’s bedside manner. Julie is kind, warm, and calm, and her staff and clients all speak so fondly of her mothering nature.
As a mother of three small boys and a certified gentle sleep coach Cristina has dedicated her life to providing families around the World, regardless of location and time zone, with the skills, confidence, and knowledge they need to get the sleep they deserve for their children and for themselves.
Whether you are co-sleeping, breastfeeding, room sharing or your child is in your room, together we can find a solution that will work for you as a family. I believe each family is different and it’s about what works for your family! It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach!
Cristina is qualified in The Gentle Sleep Coach Program (the most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available). The program involves over 80 hours of training with a faculty panel that includes two medical doctors, a psychologist, lactation counselor, postpartum doulas and a family therapist.
In addition the GSC Program includes an exclusive, certified, advanced training series specifically focusing on how to gently work with babies 0 and 5 months of age. This program, which I have also completed, consists of over 40 hours of instruction and mentorship.
Cristina and Nurture 2 Sleep will help you prepare for parenthood, whilst focusing on the wellbeing of children from infancy to childhood.
