The Gentle Sleep Coach Program® is the first and most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available to teach gentle sleep strategies. The program involves over 80 hours of training with a faculty panel that includes 2 medical doctors, a psychologist, an attorney, a lactation counselor, postpartum doulas, and a family therapist. Each coach must pass an exam and participate in case supervision with Kim West, LCSW-C (a.k.a. “the Sleep Lady”) who has been helping tired parents for over 20 years. I completed my GSC training in May 2022. Clinical supervision and ongoing advanced training are required to maintain certification as a Gentle Sleep Coach.
