I’m Éva mum of 5, founder and face of Sleep Happy Co.
Having been down the rough road of sleep deprivation as a mum, I truly understand the struggle and toll it can take on you and your family. With my fourth baby, I struggled for months to get her to settle off to sleep. Once she could successfully roll over and it was no longer safe for her to be swaddled things got really rough. I started dreading naps and bedtime as it felt like such a battle to help my little one settle and stay asleep.
I was so worn out physically and mentally. I knew we needed to seek help so I reached out to see what services were out there close by. It was then, I realised just how limited the services were in my local area for sleep-deprived parents, carers, and their babies.
While we did end up getting the sleep help we were so desperately seeking, the nearest sleep school wasn’t close. This came with the extra pressure of needing to travel over 3 hours to get there, leaving my partner and children behind.
It was through this experience that I became inspired in wanting to help other mums, dads and carers by providing a service that would be easily accessible and one I can offer locally. Sparing other families the need to travel hours to get the much-needed help and support they desperately deserve. So after many hours of studying and working with volunteers to obtain my certification, Sleep Happy Co was born.
