Holistic Pregnancy & Child Sleep

Parents do not have to choose between attachment with their babies OR sleep... They can have both (when the time is right).

As Certified Holistic Pregnancy & Child Sleep Practitioner, I am thrilled to be a part of the first Integrative, Holistic Sleep Education organisation to pioneer and include Emotional Well-being of the whole family, nutrition, green awareness, protection of the breastfeeding relationship, the attachment relationship and so much more in our sleep work. 

I don't do "Sleep Training" - only Sleep Optimization™ by addressing underlying foundational elements and focus on the holistic needs of baby and parent, to restore balance and invite a lifestyle that supports sleep.

My Approach:

 

I apply the Holistic Science of Sleep Method™, an adult and child sleep system that combines Holistic Thinking and Application with a Scientific Method to provide long term and balanced solutions to adult and child sleep challenges.

 

The underlying principles of this method is that sleep is a natural function of the human body that does not need to be taught or trained. It's a matter of addressing the things that are interfering with the body's natural rhythms, and inviting a lifestyle for the whole family that supports sleep.

 

When I work with a family, I evaluate the entire context for sleep – the physical, emotional, social, developmental and environmental factors and I see the family as an interdependent unit.

 

How I work is by:

 

  • Assessing each Sleep Foundation, first and foremost,

  • And as part of Foundations, also building on Family ConnectionEmotional Well-being and emotional release for the parent (which speeds up the sleep coaching process as subconscious blocks are eliminated which is key since all members of family including pets functions as 1 central nervous system)

  • And ONLY if needed, blending a mix of the most gentle behavioural approaches that I find appropriate for the family (this is rarely needed if foundations are in place)

 

This is a new way of thinking as what you typically see in mainstream sleep services are recommendations based solely on behavioural techniques which may not get to the root of problems and rarely focus on the uniqueness of the family as well as emotional wellbeing/connection component of the family.

 

And therefore, to obtain a Tailored Solution, guidance and support that brings your family closer and improve overall quality of life, sleep challenges require a thorough investigation (Midi/Maxi Sleep Package recommended).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By being proactive however - a family can sign up for Educational Sessions during Pregnancy that will Empower them to gain confidence in their abilities and an understanding of the natural sleep process and how to enhance and support it while at the same time fostering a deep attachment with their baby and each other...

 

Education on Sleep is currently a huge knowledge gap in Standard Antenatal/Prenatal Preparation Group Classes on the market...

"...Marise provided great advice without judgments that led to concrete and amazing results. She followed up with us on a regular basis and responded to each of our calls and emails in an extremely timely manner.  Our son showed incredible improvement and he is now sleeping through the night and napping on a consistent basis.  We are so happy we found her and we absolutely recommend her!"

IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE WE WORK TOGETHER

  • Please make sure you read all above to understand my holistic philosophy, training, the steps 1-9 in the info-graph above and that it resonates with you. It is important that we are a good match.

  • I also have to emphasise that unfortunately there are no magic quick fixes in holistic sleep work. Holistic, respectful approaches take time to develop and requires consistency and action from your side but I will try my best to deliver to you the relevant information and tools to support your family to get more rest while respecting everybody’s needs in the family

  • Emotional wellbeing:

    • For the child - I simply provide the parents with tools as part of the midi sleep package to enhance the child’s emotional wellbeing.

    • For the parent a separate emotional clearing session is recommended as this has a huge impact on the results of any sleep work. I use the Head-Trash clearance and other methods.

3. Maternity Sleep Education - 2.5h

Ideal as Prenatal Education BEFORE sleep challenges arise (otherwise refer to Sleep Coaching Midi/Maxi)

Investment: €120

  • As Holistic Pregnancy & Child Sleep Practitioner, I work with expecting moms already during pregnancy  (ideally before sleep challenges arise).  

  • Why? Because 70% of women experience sleep challenges already during pregnancy which makes coping with their new life after birth more challenging if already entering it with sleep debt.

  • The beauty is also that when we work with mom-to-be, she learns principles of how the human body functions naturally around sleep which also helps to understand baby's sleep needs better.

  • Further benefits include improved health outcomes for mom and baby during pregnancy and birth!

  • Includes:

    • mini intake questionnaire,

    • analysis of your situation,

    • customised educational/coaching session of 2.5hrs

    • debrief notes after your session via email

 

  • Includes Online Sessions

7. Emotional clearance for parent to enable/speed up sleep work progress

Recommended add-on to any sleep services: 90min via skype

Investment: €70

  • A key Holistic Sleep Foundation is understanding that all beings in the family home (yes including pets!) function together as 1 central nervous system and affect each other's nervous system. Children specifically are very sensitive and therefore if the parent is experiencing stress, overwhelm, anxiety or has a conscious or very often unconscious emotional block or negative imprint from a prior experience - this can be subconsciously felt by the child and can impact sleep, behaviour and wellbeing. Luckily it is possible to find some relief.

  • I work with the Head Trash Clearance Method and other methods diving into your subconscious to work towards a state of neutrality and working with Newton's law of opposites. The method is highly effective. A great follow on after a HTC session is a Reiki session (in-studio Helmsange or in-home Luxembourg).

  • Often, when a parent is so focussed on achieving a specific sleep result in the child this can create a subconscious resistance in the child that makes sleep results harder. An emotional release for the parent helps to clear this tension for more ease and positive results.

  • Depending on the situation, 1 or more clearance sessions are recommended.

 

  • Includes Online Session 

  • Option: In-home session in Luxembourg add 15% or in-studio session in Helmsange add 10%

  • Weekends/weeknights - add 10% surcharge
