I'm Laurel, I am a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant, Postpartum Doula and Child Passenger Safety Technician

My mission: I help new and seasoned parents alike to learn how to support their children on their journey to better sleep. 



  1. Families that have gone through and overcome infertility, IVF and/or pregnancy loss.

  2. Families that fall within the Queer spectrum.

  3. Families that are Deaf and use American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate.


My name is Laurel Segal

I have always been one to love caring for other people and it always came naturally to me. I love supporting new parents and seasoned families alike. I take pride in the knowledge and expertise that I have acquired over the years. I am passionate about teaching families the tools that they need to be the best version of themselves.

After going through over three years of infertility and seven pregnancy losses, I eventually became a mother to an amazing tiny human. Working to get my baby taught me that no matter how hard the journey is, everything will eventually be worth it. The moment I held my child for the first time, the stars aligned. Going through infertility, pregnancy loss, pregnancy (as a partner) and eventually parenthood have prepared me to support families who have gone through similar journeys. I feel very grateful to have supported countless families with similar stories and look forward to being able to support countless families in the future. I understand the emotional turmoil and attachment that you likely feel, and I empathize with you as we work together either through the postpartum period or overcoming challenging sleep dynamics with your children.
