Your call has been scheduled and we look forward to speaking with you.
I always knew that I wanted to have kids. My husband and I tried for a long time to conceive our first, but ultimately we couldn't get pregnant without a little help. That's when I learned that 1 in 8 women struggle with infertility. I was blown away.
After finally conceiving our little one, I downloaded 3 different pregnancy apps to track my growing baby. Once I was certain I understood what was happening to my body, I started to Google everything about kids. I learned all about car seat safety, safe sleep, biologically normal sleep, SIDS, baby led weaning, exclusively pumping...the list goes on.
What I did not prepare for? Recovery from birth. My experience was not a fun one. There was so much that nobody told me about. I started to realize that we prepare moms for pregnancy, labor, and sleepless nights, but NOBODY prepares us for recovering and THRIVING in our postpartum.
And thus, Beyond Birth Basics was formed.Learn more
"We had SUCH an awesome experience working with Manu to help sleep train our 3 month old baby girl! Manu is super knowledgeable about all things sleep, and is extremely responsive, kind, and patient. Our baby went from barely taking naps/waking up several times at night to sleeping at least 12 hours a night and napping like a champ. We could not have gotten to this point without Manu's help and guidance! I highly recommend working with her!!"
"It’s taken me a while to post this because life gets too busy but I knew I needed to get around to it so that I can hopefully help another tired parent get their lives back. This is exactly what this program did. Manu was our sleep consultant that worked with us and she was wonderful. My 3 year old was sleep trained until the day we brought our youngest home from the hospital. New baby… brought absolute chaos. Every person in the house was up basically every 3 hours. Then we got longer stretches from the baby but the toddler was still waking up every 3 hours… and wanting everyone up with him! This went on for 8 months…. Way. Too. Long. I finally pulled the trigger. Manu came up with a sleep plan for us for both kids. Within a week our toddler was back in his room and staying there all night until his awake clock tells him it’s ok to get up. Our baby was sick off and on (yay daycare and teething) but Manu was helpful in troubleshooting how we were going to go about all the challenges we faced until he was well. If you’re debating pulling the trigger to get sleep … stop debating and just do it. I was a walking zombie. My work was suffering, my parenting was suffering. Stop being a zombie and get your life back!"
"We worked with Manu right at the start of the new year- and all I can say is it was the best way for us to start the year! Our son was starting to wake every 1.5 - 3 hours at night, and it was so difficult. After working Manu, he sleeps 10 - 11 hours at night. We are all so much happier because of working with Manu!!”\"
"Manu is SO KNOWLEDGABLE about all things postpartum. Truly a blessing when she came into our lives. She helped us with everything from newborn sleep to understanding "normal" in postpartum."
