Pam’s 12 Days of Christmas:
Giveaway – Day 7
Win a Full Private Sleep Consultation ($525.00 value).
Light and Darkness. It is a reality of life. We all go through ups and downs. The waves can be fun and exciting at times, like when you met your partner and felt those butterflies in your stomach. Then they can be so damn rocky that you feel like you are in the middle of a tsunami. Without the darkness, we cannot appreciate the light.
Now having said that, does it mean we should stay in darkness? NO! It is so important to find a way out. And how can you do that when you are sleep deprived? I did not think I could become any more passionate about what I do. Then, just a few days ago, we launched our giveaway on Day 1 with a full private sleep consultation and asked people to tell us why they wanted to win.
I have been moved to tears by many of the comments. Moms being open and honest. Moms being courageous. Moms sharing with us about their reality of experiencing perinatal mood disorders, more commonly known as postpartum depression or PPD or PPDA and anxiety.
Over the past seven years of full time consulting, some parents have certainly opened up to let me know about their experience with postpartum depression. Has teaching their baby to sleep helped these families? Absolutely. No shadow of a doubt. Have there been families who I thought may be suffering, but they did not share that with me? Absolutely. No shadow of a doubt. Does healthy sleep make it all go away? Yes, for some. That’s all they needed. For others, no but it has certainly helped. With proper sleep, moms and dads are better able to continue to reach out or take the next step to find additional support.

Let’s lift the veil off this important issue, so more tragedies like the recent one in Vancouver B.C., Canada can be prevented. I do not know if sleep deprivation was a contributing factor in Florence Leung’s PPD. I am not privy to the details surrounding her death. I do know that sleep deprivation is a leading cause/contributing factor to perinatal mood disorders in general. I have been so inspired by the courageous comments in the contest, that I am going to be dedicating the month of January to bring more awareness and attention to this issue. I will also be donating a portion of my company’s profits in hopes to help bring others out of the dark and into the light. If you would like to join me, I would be so very grateful. Simply email and let us know you are interested.
Now, it is your turn. Tell us WHY you want to win a full private sleep consultation, valued at $525.00. If you already told us your story on Day 1, then tell us the first thing you want to do once your family is well rested.
love, hugs, and gratitude,
