Approach

I apply the Holistic Science of Sleep Method™ which focus on the relationship between the scientific foundations of sleep, the behavior of sleep, and the emotional wellbeing of sleep to establish healthy sleep habits and provide long term solutions to maternity and child sleep challenges.

The underlying principle of this method is that sleep is a natural process that does not require training. As a result, I do not focus on a child's sleep challenge and apply a behavioural method as a quick solution. There is rarely  just one ‘problem’ affecting sleep. It is usually a combination of many factors with each one building upon the other;this is why a holistic approach is suitable in addressing sleep challenges.

In my work with a family, I focus on the many factors which interfere with the body's natural rhythm: physical, emotional, social, developmental and the environment, to discover the root of a sleep challenge. I will address and analyze all factors one by one and focus on the major (and often overlooked) factors early in the process.  Together, with the family, we will develop sleep goals and a plan specific to the family's unique needs.

The Holistic Science of Sleep Method™ is not a quick fix and involves the active involvement and commitment of the parents in creating a positive sleep experience for you and your baby.

 

 

 

    Rolanda Lavallee RN BN MN

    Rolanda is a registered nurse who holds both a Bachelor of Nursing and a Masters of Nursing degree. She has been a nurse for 25 plus years in many areas of nursing, including as an educator. Rolanda is a graduate of the International Maternity & Parenting Institute (IMPI) where she completed the International Maternity & Child Sleep Certification Program and an Advanced Maternity & Child Sleep Practicum Program which included both theory and a practicum component. The advanced practicum program focus on complex sleep case studies such as adoption, twins, special needs, same sex couples, pregnancy, birth trauma, post partum depression, and self - care. 

    As a nurse, Rolanda was knowledgeable regarding the importance of sleep, but truly understood the impact of sleep on health when she became a mom. Rolanda transitioned into parenthood by pushing through her own sleep deprivation, struggling with nap times of two children who were very close in age, and challenging bedtime routines. The outcome was a weakened immune system with various health issues for 2 years.

    In a quest to "finding a better way", she discovered many holistic approaches, the importance of sleep, and the value of sleep coaches and educators who focus on a family's unique needs and a child's emotional wellbeing. Based on her personal experience, she became passionate about helping families achieve balanced sleep. She believes sleep is an essential need that is the foundation of our health and is the tip of the iceberg when impacted.

    The International Maternity and Parenting Institute™  sleep programs are recognized and approved by the Association of Professional Sleep Consultants (APSC). An organization dedicated to supporting Professional Sleep Consultants by promoting and upholding the highest level of excellence and industry standards for professional sleep consulting throughout the world.
