"best perk so far!"

sleep benefits program for new parents

each employee is entitled to 3 x 1-1 coaching sessions with a sleep expert per child

This family-centred initiative offers your working mums and dads 3 x 45-minute personalised coaching calls that they can book directly with an expert sleep coach AS AND WHEN they need support with family sleep challenges, whether during parental leave or after, so that they can continue to bring their best selves into work whilst balancing the demands of early parenthood.

There are 1 million more working mothers now than 20 years ago.

70% of families have both parents working, which means that everyone at home needs a good nights' sleep.

New parents get on average just 5 hours of sleep a night over the first year of life.

This is 2-4 hours less than is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation and means that parents may be returning to work after parental leave following months of sleep deprivation.

What are the challenges for working parents in getting help with sleep?

Ante/postnatal help is lacking in the public domain and particularly during the pandemic

Many parents can't afford private help

Busy working parents don't have time to read self-help books and they aren't tailored to their child

Many parents don't want to leave their child to cry but don’t know about gentle alternatives or where to start with making changes

Few GPs/health visitors are specifically trained to advise on family sleep and often recommend cry-it-out

With training in breastfeeding support and holistic approaches for children, as well as a background in primary school teaching, Katie provides effective sleep solutions that are:

Evidence-based and age-appropriate from birth through to primary age

Tailored to parenting preferences and individual family circumstances

Mindful of children’s broader emotional, physical and developmental needs

coaching consists of:

  • A 45-minute virtual consultation with an expert sleep coach
  • Pre-coaching assessment with a confidential health & sleep background questionnaire
  • Sleep education, emotional support and tailored evidence-based sleep strategies for infants and children
  • Follow-up notes with practical, actionable steps and resources


  • Employees develop a rapport with their sleep coach and can check in as they experience new challenges and their family grows
  • Coaching is confidential, making it accessible to employees at different levels of seniority
  • Sleep support meets the needs of families when they need it most - whether it's during parental leave or after
  • The Circadian Sleep Benefits Program compliments other wellness initiatives to support post-parental leave retention
