Is Sleep Your Number One Postpartum Challenge?

If the persistent lack of sleep is degrading your postpartum experience, you are not alone!

Almost all parents find the lack of restful and/or consistent sleep to be the most challenging and, often, the most surprising part of family life once the baby arrives.

Lack of consistent sleep can negatively impact your mental health - taking turns with a partner or support person in order to try to get 5 hour sleep blocks is very important!
