About me

I am Megan Robert (pronounced row-BERT), owner of After the Stork, creator and host of the After the Stork Podcast: Infant & Toddler Sleep with Megan Robert, and Infant & Toddler Sleep Consultant, Former Postpartum Doula, and Former Nanny. I guide parents to confidently achieve safe & quality sleep for their napping children through virtual consultations, customized sleep plans and other resources, and support. Here is a brief overview of my Stork Philosophy. For a more in depth dive, visit First and foremost, no parent should be shamed for striving to have a child who sleeps well. Second, well-fed and well-rested can coexist! Sleep training can happen while keeping night feedings. Third, building a strong sleep foundation is more than just choosing a sleep training method. It involves what I call ESRA+. ESRA+ involves the five components I evaluate and consider with every single sleep plan. Fourth, with sleep training, you have options and you are not going to damage your child. Aka, “cry it out” is not the only option when it comes to sleep training. But it is also not something that will damage your child if you choose it. We will take your parenting preferences, your child's temperament and age, and your specific situation into consideration when deciding your type of response during sleep. Fifth, your child is human. For humans, change takes time and can be challenging. And for an overtired child who doesn’t yet understand or want the changes, protesting may occur. Hence, it is important that you, as a parent, trust in the process, believe in your child’s abilities, and keep a positive mindset while also setting realistic expectations.

Service introduction

I support expecting parents and parents of newborns, infants, and toddlers through the education and power of sleep. Parents who desire a healthy and happy child with a predictable schedule that permits time for things like self-care and date nights, allows planning, and provides an overall well-rested and thriving family! I support parents who want to be proactive with their child’s sleep by creating a safe and strong sleep foundation for their newborn or creating a plan of action to guide their infant or toddler through milestones such as dropping naps, the transition from crib to big kid bed, a move, a vacation, the welcoming of a new sibling. I also support those who have a child struggling with sleep and desire to make a change. Issues such as short/no naps, requiring long bouts of rocking or feeding or some other form of external assistance to sleep, bedtime struggles, preschool procrastination, frequent night wakings, early rising.
