Meredith Brough is a sleep coach, childcare expert of 30 years and a mother of five. She developed natural sleep coaching abilities while raising her children and running an in-home daycare for 15 years. In 2017, Meredith worked with a desperate, single mother of infant twins who hardly slept at all. The mother had postpartum depression, was very sick, and was losing her will to live. When her babies began napping well and sleeping through the night in a short time, she felt like a completely new person. This experience showed Meredith that sleep coaching was her true calling in life. A few months later, she founded her company, Sweet Slumber.
During her first year in business, Meredith found herself working with sensitive, spirited, and high needs children from all over the world. She discovered a new passion and learned how to customize her approach according to individual temperaments and needs. She developed several non-crying methods, peaceful solutions, and the Successful Sleep System for babies and young children.
Meredith is known for her responsive solutions and mommy-whispering skills. She teaches parents how to handle regressions, support optimal development, and trust their intuition. Her knowledge and experience empowers parents to successfully build sleep habits and confidently care for their children.
Meredith works with local families in their homes, coaches parents globally using Zoom, and offers online courses and classes. She also hosts “The Sweet Slumber Podcast.” In her free time, Meredith enjoys being with her family, serving others, learning, connecting with friends, and being outdoors.

Hi, I'm Sarah. Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant and Newborn Care Specialist.
I'm a mom of four and experienced in child-rearing and early childhood education with an insatiable passion for sleep coaching and newborn care. I’ve been empowering families in this arena since the birth of my first-born son about 8 years ago and have met great success.
I’m on a never-ending quest of knowledge and additional training so I can provide my clients with the best, personally tailored, and evidence-based sleep advice. My experience, backed with focused training, and areas of expertise are in pediatric sleep and newborn care.
Identifying the root cause of your child’s sleep issues is the first step to creating a solid foundation for sleep. With my wealth of knowledge and expertise, coupled with your intuitive mother’s instinct, we’ll set realistic and achievable goals in order to establish a routine and make positive changes to your child’s sleep. An effective sleep strategy is never a one-size-fits-all approach and I will customize a plan that best suits your family's needs.
"Sarah’s eclectic experience with many methods and her expansive baby related knowledge made working with her feel personalized and comfortable. Sarah was able to tweak methods, rules, and “should-dos” to fit my values and specific family needs. Sarah was open, and kind, and never judged me. Sarah tailored and customized a system to fit me, my baby, and our goals. Sarah was encouraging and continuously referred me to my maternal instincts and innate knowledge. Sarah promoted me as the expert of my child and guided me along that path using her expertise. Having Sarah on this journey allowed me to set myself up for success, enjoy this incredibly special time with my baby, and feel secure while doing it. Spoiler alert- at 7 months I have a great sleeper, and I know what my baby needs which means I have a happy baby as well. Sarah is a true gift!”
