Family Sleep Consulting

Helping Families Across Canada!

Meet Stacey!

Founder & Owner of Sleep by Nature

Certified Child Sleep Consultant & Mom of 2!

Hi, I’m Stacey Van Voorden. It is common for parents to have questions regarding their child’s sleep during infancy, toddler, pre-school, and school-age years. I specialize in answering those questions and provide real solutions based on expert experience and scientific research. I provide educational and coaching services through phone or in-home consultations, emails, and sleep logs to help families achieve healthy sleep. Common topics and challenges we cover while working together are:

  • Safe sleep and sleep environment
  • Age-appropriate sleep schedules
  • Consolidating sleep for nights and naps
  • Bed-sharing & co-sleeping transitions
  • Crib to bed transition
  • Nap transitions 

Following AAP safe sleep guidelines is always a top priority while working with families.

Are You

Tired from lack of consolidated sleep?

Frustrated with web searches filled with conflicting information?

Done with trying out advice based on personal experience?

Ready for change? To get the facts and solutions specific to your family?

Why is sleep so important?

Because it is a biological need, we can’t live without it and we are not at our best if we don’t get enough of it.

Because it impacts health, mood, behaviour and performance.

Because sleeping well makes life better!

Children require much more sleep than adults do.

The results…

Family sleep consulting allows for a well rested family with parents who actually get to enjoy some me time.

Definition of “me time”:

Time spent relaxing as opposed to doing things for others, seen as an opportunity to reduce stress or restore energy.

Family Sleep Consulting

Suitable for ages 4 months – 6 years

All Packages Include:

Step 1 - Questionnaire

A questionnaire is sent to you to be filled out. 

Step 2 - Sleep Consultation

We schedule our consultation that can be done over the phone or in person (see add-ons for an in-home consultation). I use your questionnaire to guide our conversation allowing us both the opportunity to ask questions and clarify details. I will provide you with sleep facts where appropriate and solution strategies that suits your family.

Step 3 - Unique Sleep Plan

Your unique sleep plan is created and sent to you within 24 hours from our consultation. Your sleep plan is an organized recap of our consultation which will include your “Steps for Sleep Success” and “Sleep Schedule”. Once you confirm you are happy and comfortable with your sleep plan you will choose a start date within 1-3 days.

Step 4 - Follow-Up Support

Follow-up support is a very important component to seeing your sleep plan through to success. Daily check-ins are key to maintaining consistency, tracking progress and making adjustments as we see fit to match your child’s personality. This one-on-one support starts from the day we implement your sleep plan. It includes daily emailing and up to 2 scheduled phone calls per week as needed/desired. Your package options are based on how long you would like continued support.

Step 5 - A Wrap-Up Session

Wrap-up phone call + wrap-up email + additional information and tips for long-term success.

1 Week: $235

2 Weeks: $319


In-Home Consultation

Add this to your package and let’s meet in the comfort of your own home! Would you like to meet in person but not at your home? No problem! We can meet at your favourite local spot! It’s not a requirement to meet your child or to see their bedroom although some families prefer these extra’s and that’s okay too. Please inquire before purchase if you live outside of Clarington, Ontario.


Add 1 Child

Do you have more than 1 child that is struggling with sleep? You can add this to your package and we can get the whole family sleeping well! (Excluding twins or triplets as they are covered together with the purchase of just 1 package)


Add 1 Week

If you chose the 1 Week package, the 2 Weeks package or the 7-day Email package and decide that you would benefit from more time working together, add on another week of daily emails with up to 2 phone calls!

Stacey is the best!! My son went from waking up to nurse to sleep every 1-3 hours, to sleeping through the night by night 2! He naps regularly so we can actually make plans around his nap schedule, rather than have him fall asleep in the car 2 minutes before we arrive somewhere! I was an exhausted mom for 13 months and needed help. We met with Stacey, she made a plan that worked for our family, and literally changed our lives! Hiring Stacey was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. My son deserves a mom who is happy and well rested and thanks to Stacey, now he has one:) 

Amanda P.

My daughter went from nursing to sleep and sleeping half the night in our bed to putting herself to sleep and in her own room for 12 hrs a night!!! Thank you so much!

Stephanie H.

Stacey has changed my life!!! We have 5 children in our house and Stacey made a plan for my 4 year old as well as my 6 month old! Being such a busy household I never thought I would sleep again! Stacey was absolutely exceptional! She worked with my family and created a sleep plan that was not only successful but was also something that I felt comfortable doing. I never felt judged or like I wasn’t doing what I supposed to. When I did feel like I wasn’t following the plan properly she adjusted it and made all of my goals attainable. During the beginning of the process my husband was away and she was aware I was starting it on my own. She kept in contact with me the entire evening and made sure I had the support I needed. I don’t think I would have made it through the night without her!! Since Stacey came into our lives we all sleep better and my son’s teacher commented on how his behavior has improved so drastically in school! Thank You Stacey!

Stacey was fabulous throughout the entire sleep training process. She was attentive, supportive, knowledgeable and most important- caring. It was so important to my husband and I to follow a gentle approach as we have a very sensitive little guy who has had numerous challenges throughout his 10 months – and even during our sleep training! Stacey took the time to really get a good understanding of our little guy and helped us develop a perfect plan for us. He went from waking every 1-1.5hrs (at the most!) to sleeping his longest stretches ever. We are so grateful for Stacey’s dedication to our success, and the healthy sleep habits our little guy has developed. She was flexible, reliable, and a fabulous resource during our entire process.
