Hello! I am Evie Ward, Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant, Registered Nurse, and the Founder of New Leaf Sleep Consulting. I became passionate about helping families improve their child’s sleep when I experienced the life-changing support from a sleep consultant with my first son. I create a customized sleep plan based on your child's needs and then we spend the next few weeks working on improving your little one's sleep. I believe that sleep is the foundation of a happy and healthy family. My goal when working with families is to help everyone get the sleep that they deserve!
Associates in Nursing (2007)
Pediatric Sleep Consultant (2021)
I offer 1:1 sleep support for newborns through preschool aged children who are struggling with sleep. I collaborate with parents and caregivers to create a customized sleep plan, interactive sleep log, and phone and email support during our time working together.
When our son was 6 months old, I was so sleep deprived I could barely remember what day of the week it was. I was waking every 1-2 hours to console him, heavily leaning on nursing to soothe him, my husband felt helpless, and frustration had set in. I was referred to Evie and she responded to my message the same day, and immediately made space for a consultation with us. She was extremely compassionate about my emotions around moving our son to his own room and changing the routine of when I’d nurse. She heard ALL of our struggles and addressed each one with encouragement, non-judgement and thorough, unrushed conversation. She even took time out of her own vacation to speak with us during our 2 week learning period. She has a wide range of knowledge about infant sleep, she can relate with personal experiences as a mom herself, and she offers support not only logistically but reassuringly. Our son was sleeping 5-7hrs through the night by day two, self soothing, and quickly became responsive to a nap routine. She literally changed my life during a time of deep self doubt and I can’t recommend her more highly! Don’t hesitate to call her! Postpartum is hard, parenthood is hard, and we all deserve a cheerleader and good sleep!
