Lou & Sarah
We set up SleepGeeks in 2018 after becoming firm friends when training to be antenatal practitioners for the National Childbirth Trust. We are NOT your traditional, old-school "sleep trainers"! As mums and professionals we both believe passionately in the positive benefits and scientific basis of gentle sleep coaching techniques which build lasting, healthy sleep habits, as opposed to traditional sleep training.
Lou Toosey (mum of 2 boys, 13 and 16) has been an NCT practitioner since 2012. She is a qualified Baby Massage Instructor and registered with IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage). You can find out more about her baby massage classes here.
