New Mummy Co is delighted to work with safe sleep expert Yolanda to provide complimentary safe sleep education webinars. The safe sleep webinars provide an excellent introduction into safe sleep guidelines and SIDS prevention for new and expectant parents.
Yolanda is an infant safe sleep expert and became a safe sleep educator in 2004 after the tragic death of her second son to SIDS. After her son died Yolanda devoted herself to research SIDS and safe sleep extensively setting her on the journey to become the safe sleep expert she is today.
Yolanda has worked safe sleep organizations around the world to increase awareness and continue to learn the best safe practices. Yolanda has realized that the one common denominator to help prevent unsafe sleep situations was education and awareness.
Safe Sleep Education
There is a lot of confusion for parents on what is safe when it comes to baby and infant sleep. In the hospital you may have seen your baby wear a hat, they may have also slept on their tummy in the NICU, or they may have had loose blankets in their crib. In baby stores you can purchase crib bumpers, duvets and baby pillows so why then are these classed as unsafe when it comes to safe sleep? No wonder parents are confused!
We continue to educate our team and promote safe sleep with Yolanda, so that you as new or expectant parents can learn what is “safe sleep” and what conditions are best for your baby to sleep in.
Louise is amazing, changed our lives. Couldn’t recommend her enough (Sleep Coach)Fennella and Brian from Toronto
Pratima sleep trained our baby in 5 weeks and we will be forever gratefulThe Wilkins Family from Toronto
Andrea was fantastic. Our sleep coaching was such a success and I sincerely believe it’s the best thing we’ve done since becoming parents. Andrea’s personality worked really well with mine. She was calm and flexible and not overly “coachy”. She listened to me and my concerns with Noa’s sleeping (which seemed ever changing and new) and always made the most thoughtful suggestions. She always checked in to see how we were making out following a period of trial and error. I would highly recommend her to any mother. She has definitely equipped me with the necessary tools so that I feel confident moving forward without her, which I believe is the most important thing. I will miss having her to bounce ideas off of – our conversations were so productive and helped me retain my sanity throughout the process.The Payne family – Toronto

What does SIDS mean?
SIDS is the acronym for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the sudden and unexplained death of a baby younger than 1-year-old.
How likely is SIDS? Why does this happen?
Although SIDS is rare, it is one of the most common causes of death in babies between 1 and 12 months of age. Most babies who die of SIDS are between the ages of 2 and 4 months. Doctors don’t know what causes SIDS and it has no symptoms or warning signs. Babies who die of SIDS seem healthy before being put to bed.
• Could you let me know detailed what covers the session?
• What covers the full nursery/bedroom assessment?
• Should I set up this session before fitting the nursery?
Can this kind of class prevent SIDS?
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done about a SIDS death, but definitely, we can educate and hopefully prevent unsafe sleep deaths with this kind of initiative.
Our expert on Sleep Safe has more than 15 years of experience in this field and after had spoken with every agency around the world that had anything to do with SIDS or safe sleep, she realized that only one thing can make a difference: education.
How long is the session?
The session will last up to 90 minutes including one hour of safe sleep education together with a full nursery/bedroom assessment with plenty of time for questions and answers.
If I will have a Night Nanny, should I take this class?
The best way to know that your Night Nanny is doing the right thing is to know how to do it yourself. Sleep Safe is a key training that will let you feel more confident and calm when your little one sleeps.
Should my nanny take the class?
Should my nanny take the class? We encourage you to check the experience and knowledge of the nanny before hiring. Your nanny has likely taken the training before, but it could be a great opportunity to update their skills. Knowing that your baby’s or infant’s primary caregivers are trained will increase your comfort level. If you need a nanny we also can offer this service. We have a team of nannies who are handpicked by Maria Robertson, our founder, and CEO. With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, Maria only brings onboard fully qualified, trained professionals who have recent and relevant newborn experience.

What is the difference between Safe Sleep and Sleep Training?
What is the difference between Safe Sleep and Sleep Training? They are totally different. Safe Sleep is designed to cover all aspects of safe sleep and SIDS prevention, while the services of Sleep Training or Sleep Coaching let you establish an appropriate bedtime routine for your baby, tailored to your family needs and lifestyle.
Could your specialist help me with sleep training as well?
Safe Sleep is designed to cover all aspects of safe sleep and SIDS prevention, however, this does not cover sleep training. We do offer Infant Sleep Coaching Services but not in safe sleep as they are two separate services and usually undertaken months apart.
If you want, you can have a personalized sleep consultancy which will offer you a comprehensive sleep solution, educate you on your baby’s sleep needs, help you to establish an appropriate bedtime routine by allowing us to coach and advise you on the best method and routine for your baby, family and lifestyle. If you would like to book it, please do so here
I am pregnant and I am worried about COVID-19 and I know you offer some classes online, could I take this one online?
Yes, we offer this class across Canada and internationally through Zoom. The class is available to you virtually through Zoom. If you have a laptop or iPad that you can move around your house that will be helpful as we will need to see each area that you plan to have the baby sleep in to ensure that each sleeping area is safe for your baby to sleep in and meeting safe sleep guidelines.
