Hi, I’m Sara Nudd, RN, BSN, CPN, PMH-C
I’m a Colorado-based pediatric nurse, sleep consultant, and mom of 4. After 20+ years teaching families how to care for their children during times of illness and developmental milestones as a pediatric RN, I recognized a correlation between infant and child sleep patterns and their parents’ mental health.
Night after sleepless night can take its toll on parents and caregivers physically, emotionally, and mentally. One of the most important ways to relieve these symptoms is with uninterrupted and restorative sleep. I can help you do that with a holistic, individualized approach focused on evidence-based information and a unique mental health lens. I also facilitate parent support groups so you can build your community as you navigate parenthood.
I’m on a mission to help you and your baby or child sleep better so you can show up as the calm and connected parent you want to be. Let’s work together to get you the sleep you so desperately need and deserve.
“Life-changing! My anxiety about my son's sleeping habits were immediately reduced after talking to Sara. She went above and beyond to tailor a schedule to our goals, answer our questions, keep us on track, and check in to encourage us when we just thought we couldn't do it anymore. I didn't realize how much our sleep situation (or lack thereof) was affecting all of us. I thought I had tried it all and read it all, but Sara offered suggestions that were specific to our child's temperament and to our situation. I now feel empowered to give our son the sleep he needs, and grateful that my husband and I can sleep, too. Thank you, Sara!”
Here’s How The Mama Co-Op Can Help You
Kind Words for Sara
“I don’t know where I’d be without Sara’s help! She was absolutely instrumental in supporting me and my husband while we guided our kids in becoming independent sleepers. And we ourselves required a fair bit of guidance during this process, too! Sara was just a phone call or a text away any time of day or night to offer encouragement, support, feedback, and perspective. Now my kids each fall asleep in their own beds and stay in bed all night. It’s been life changing for all of us! Sara’s approach was gentle and kind, calm and reassuring. Some nights were a real struggle. But Sara had a knack of making us realize that it was ok to accept where we were in the process. She was always able to keep the endgame (independently sleeping kids!) on our horizon. Not that I was always able to see this on the horizon - due to sleep deprivation and all - but in the end, sure enough, we made it! And we are so much better off for it. We are all sleeping better than we have in a long time. Thank you Sara!!”
Better sleep can help you be a better parent.
Sleep deprivation and postpartum depression are intertwined. Emerging evidence suggests that women with significant sleep disturbance, characterized by poor sleep quality or insomnia symptoms are more likely to report an increase in depressive feelings or develop postpartum depression. And depression makes parenting incredibly hard.
