Seeing how much more present of a wife and mother she was after sleep training her oldest daughter at just 10 weeks old, Joanna set out on a journey to help other parents in desperate need of sleep. Joanna is now a Certified Maternity and Child Sleep Coach and is passionate about getting babies and children sleeping across the globe. In addition she teaches classes at The New Mom School and is an expert in all things baby. Joanna does not conform to any one method of sleep training, but rather meets with families to determine what strategies will work best for them.
