nicu nurse

hi! i'm april. my husband and i both grew up in large families that just keep getting bigger! we have 28 nieces and nephews (with a few on the way) from 11 siblings! since i was 11 years old, i knew i wanted to be a nurse in the nicu. for the past 5 years i've been able to live out my dream, taking care of hundreds of babies. 

as amazing of a job it is, i found myself missing the families and babies that i worked with once they left the nicu. i felt like i was missing an opportunity to continue to support families with some of their deepest struggles. one of these struggles was their baby's sleep!

in most conversations i have with friends & family about their infants and toddlers, the number one complaint i hear is about their baby's sleep. i knew there had to be some way i could help.

my first experience sleep consulting was with a family member. our time together drastically changed the health and sleep habits of both the baby and parents! this first experience was all i needed to know that i want the same positive change for you and your family too.

by leveraging my nicu experience, education, and sleep consulting experience, i hope to be by your side as you navigate this new and exciting time of your life!
