Sam Eades said: “Calm & Bright Sleep Support were a lifeline to me during those long, lonely nights with a new baby, and I have recommended their channel and plans to everyone I know. I’m delighted to be working with sisters Eve and Gemma to share their love-led method with the thousands of parents who are struggling with the effects of sleep deprivation.”
Eve and Gem said: “This book extends our hand of support to the parents who need it the most. Our message is that there is a new way to ‘do’ sleep, a way that is free of guilt and judgement, of shame and ‘shoulds’. Our hope for this book is that it will release families from the shackles of a life without sleep and inspire healing, harmony and hope in the lives of those who read it.”
Calm & Bright Sleep Support, founded by sisters Eve and Gem, encourages and empowers parents to enable their children with solid sleep. It was 2009 when Eve crashed her car with her ten-month-old baby in it. Horrified to discover that driving tired was more dangerous than driving drunk, she vowed to sort out sleep. Put off by harsher sleep training methods, and worn out by the brutality of doing nothing, Eve developed her own way to quickly and lovingly enable sleep. Within three days, Eve’s ten-month-old baby was happily sleeping 12 solid hours a night.
Filled with energy, motivation and hope, Eve volunteered for five years locally, helping other parents to find their own sleep solutions. In 2014, no longer able to satisfy local demand, paediatric nurse Gem joined forces with her sister and they began working remotely together, helping families as far reaching as in Hawaii, New York, Kenya, Borneo and Singapore in the first year. Together with their team, Eve & Gem have since helped thousands of families step into the connected family life that solid sleep brings. As a result of their swift results and compassionate approach, they are fast becoming the UK’s most trusted voice in paediatric sleep. Happy clients including Izzy Judd, Rachele Hambleton, Anna Mathur and Kelly Terranova.
In their ground-breaking book Love to Sleep: Good Nights and Happy Days for Your Child and You, Eve and Gem reveal the pivotal role of the parent in their child’s sleep and explore the startling impact of sleep deprivation on the physical and mental health of the whole family. Using their unique, love-led approach, the book challenges parents to cast aside restrictive beliefs and behaviours that contribute directly to broken sleep cycles. This liberating and judgement-free book will be a must-read for every tired parent, providing support to help the whole family get what you need – happy days and a good night’s sleep!
