Sleep Deprivation is Serious

If you've not gotten a solid night's sleep in what seems like ages, you're not alone. Many parents encouter inadequate, fragmented sleep when their babies are young. Have you considered "sleep training"? There are many variations of techniques to gently help your baby develop healthy sleep patterns. The Tranquil Seasons Sleep Training method can take many forms, and starts with natural, slow, night time structuring based on your babies' personality and physiological needs.

You don't always have to resort to the cry-it-out method.

If you're considering sleep trainers or reading books on infant sleep training, but crying-it-out doesn't seem like a natural, or kind way to deal with sleepless nights, or if you've tried letting your baby cry-it-out and it's not worked - please call 210-548-8800.

We provide sleep training and gentle sleep structuring help for parents who need that extra bit of insight.


"Anne was beyond helpful with our twin girls.
We are all now sleeping soundly through the night!" - Maria

Anne cares so much for the emotional health of newborns and their mothers that she will gladly give you a free 30 minute phone consultation, to help you work through this common, though difficult transition. If your situation requires more than a 30 minute phone conversation, consider having her into your home for an in-person consultation, including 1 or more overnight shifts of postpartum care to assist you in "working the plan" while getting some of your sanity back to allow you to continue helping your baby sleep.

Ask for our long list of references. When you talk to them, you'll hear over and over again, how our help is worth every penny.

When is the best time to start sleep structuring?
This question has a complicated answer.
The overall determining factor is:
Whenever YOU are ready to make some changes.

"Anne knows babies and Anne knows baby sleep. Her help with bedtimes changed our lives." - Katie, mom to twins

Did you know, that if you've suffered from anxiety or depression at other times in your life, you run a higher risk of suffering from postpartum depression...?

Sleep Deprivation Increases Risk for Postpartum Depression in New Mothers

A study published in the current issue of the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, & Neonatal Nursing shows that depression symptoms worsen in PPD patients when their quality of sleep declines.


Worried About Postpartum Mood Disorders?

Sleep deprivation can hamper a mother's ability to care for her infant, as judgment and concentration decline. Sleep-deprived mothers also may inadvertently compromise their infants' sleep quality because infants often adopt their mothers' circadian sleep rhythms.

All new mothers experience some sleep loss following childbirth, as their estrogen and progesterone hormone levels plunge. They typically spend 20 percent more of the day awake than average during the first six weeks postpartum. Postpartum women wake more frequently and have less dream sleep than non-postpartum women, with women in their first month postpartum spending only 81 percent of their time in bed actually sleeping.

Neurotransmitters that influence sleep quality also affect mood, raising sleep-deprived mothers' risk for depression ...

Study author Bobbie Posmontier of Drexel University compared sleep patterns of 46 postpartum women, half with symptoms of PPD and half without. Sleep patterns were monitored for seven consecutive days. Results showed that mothers suffering from PPD took longer to fall asleep and slept for shorter periods. The worse their sleep quality, the worse their depression.

Your doula Anne has been there, both personally and professionally. She understands the anxiety this intense transition brings with it. She can relate to new mothers battling to prevent/recover from depression and she specializes in sleep disturbances of both mom and newborn.
