I just love sharing my 10 years of experience with other parents whilst helping their children to sleep more soundly. It really is amazing how quickly changes can take place with the right support.
Some of my client’s experiences are below:
Jane, with Hudson (7 months)
When I first contacted Sacha I was feeling exhausted, broken, and could barely function everyday from such little sleep. My 7 month old had never slept longer than 2-3 consecutive hours since he was born. Sacha listened to all of my concerns & troubles, and created a personalised sleep guide for my son that matched my parenting style perfectly. Within just 48 hours my son went from 1-2 hourly wakes and breastfeeding all night long, to sleeping 10 hours straight in his cot. I couldn’t believe it! A few months down the track and things are still going wonderful. My son is so much happier because he’s getting the sleep he needs and I have my energy and sanity back. I wish I’d reached out to Sacha sooner! She is so thorough, helpful, supportive and understanding.
Elle and Joshua, with Hazel (16 months)
“Before working with Sacha our family had not slept more than 2 full nights sleep since our daughter was born. At 13months old we were at our wits end after trying other sleep programs, reading sleep books and trying every trick given to us. After our initial consult with Sacha we started that night and on the second night our daughter slept through from 6pm – 5am which had NEVER happened. We didn’t look back after this even with an illness during the program our daughter slept better than ever before. It has been LIFE CHANGING for my husband and I to finally get some decent rest. Our daughter is also a much more energetic and happy toddler. I would 100% use Sacha’s services again if we had another child.”
Roxanne, with Mila (9 months)
My baby started waking up every 30 mins to 1 hour when she turned 8 months old. We went to sleep school in the hopes that she would sleep better after. It was frustrating because after sleep school, my baby was still waking up every 30 mins to 1 hour. I used to co sleep and my baby learned to sleep in the crib after sleep school but didn’t really learn to extend sleep cycles. That’s when I was desperate and asked for Sacha’s help as I was exhausted and tired. Sacha assessed my baby and respected where we were at after sleep school. She followed through and helped me slowly help my baby learn to sleep on her own and self soothe. I didn’t think my baby would learn how to sleep through but if it’s not because of Sacha’s daily help, I don’t think we will reach this far! Thank you so much Sacha!

Emily and James, with Silas (14 months)
Before I found Sacha, my son Silas was waking 3-6 times a night, this was taking a huge toll on my sleep and just recently finding out I was pregnant again I knew this needed to change but I had no idea where or how to start. Sacha gave us all the tips and tricks we needed and with her constant guidance, after the 2 week period Silas is sleeping through the night! I can’t recommend Sacha enough!
Eloise and Chris, with Jack (9 months)
We reached out to Sacha absolutely sleep deprived and without hope that we and our son would ever sleep again. Her constant support and thorough knowledge has changed our lives! We are all sleeping again! Our son wouldn’t sleep unless I was holding him and would wake 5+ times a night. Now he’s taking good long naps in his cot and better than ever at night.
I really can’t thank you enough. Our life has changed completely.
Kate and her husband with their son (6 months)
We arrived at Sacha’s door step (so to speak) exhausted and nearly broken. Our baby was waking up multiple times at night wanting to be fed and the only way to get him back to sleep seemed to be to comply. Thankfully after just the first session Sacha supported us to understand that feeding to sleep was not helping our baby have good quality sleep, and in fact it was even contributing to the frequent waking. She then guided us through two weeks of sleep training, where we taught baby how to put himself to sleep. It was a game changer. Now our 6.5 month old sleeps a solid 9 hours straight most nights, and goes down for naps without any sleep props; goodbye dummy! Was it easy? No. but was it worthwhile, absolutely. And with Sacha in your corner it is totally doable. Her emotional strength and authority around babies is a welcome relief for tired parents. She is never far away (even though we did it all over skype and phone!) and had lots of suggestions along the journey. For my next baby I certainly won’t be waiting so long before getting support! Thanks so much Sacha. Kate (Sydney)
Briony and Cam, with Vivian (11 months)
We were at our wits end with sleep, having tried everything we could think of. We always had an excuse for poor sleep – teething, developmental leaps, daycare etc, but it never seemed to get better. We had an almost 12 month old who would only contact nap during the day, and would wake 4-6 times overnight. We were both exhausted and it was starting to impact every aspect of our lives. We reached out to Sacha because her approach resonated with our goals and values. I was very hesitant at first, but with her wonderful support I was able to overcome some significant fears and hesitations around sleep training. We saw some really fantastic improvements within a couple of days, but then our little one got sick. Sacha was, again, very supportive of us pausing the program while we managed this. We emerged after 2 weeks and were able to progress with amazing results. Now our daughter takes independent naps during the day in her cot, and is sleeping through more often than not. She is far happier during the days, and we have noticed she is much more engaged and content in everything we do. She even takes 2 naps at daycare now! We are all so much happier, and, most importantly, confident in our approach to sleep and parenting. Sacha has been an amazing support throughout the entire process. I cannot recommend her program highly enough. Thank you so much!
E and S with their daughter (15 months)
At eight months old our little girl was still waking four or more times a night, catnapping throughout the day, and only settling by feeding. We had tried sleep books, phone consults and a variety of routines but were unable to find anything that was effective, sustainable and nurturing. By the time our daughter was 15 months we were all desperate for more solid sleep – her included. We tried Sacha’s approach and instantly had results. She taught us how and when to respond to our daughters cues and enabled us to feel empowered in an area where we feeling completely lost as parents. By the third night we were all sleeping through the night, which was a huge relief. What’s more, we have gained so much joy from seeing our daughter’s true personality shine through now she’s no longer overtired from broken sleep. Sacha is thoughtful, caring, wholistic and structured in her approach. We found her routine super easy to follow and it got us quick results.
Emily and Tom with William & Evelyn (6 months and 3 years)
I recently signed up to Sacha from Settle and Flow’s sleep program. I have a 3 year old who was taking more than 2 hours to settle and go to sleep with us sitting in the room with her. And a 6 month old that was cat napping for 10-45 mins three times a day and waking every 2 hours through the night. Myself and my husband were so exhausted. Sacha is such an incredible support. What I loved about this program was that Sacha came to our home, supported us with our rhythm as a family with an individually tailored plan for each child. She worked so beautifully with both of the kids, my husband and myself without the strict traditional “cry it out sleep school mentality” that people so often complain about! With 4 kids of her own, she could totally relate to our experience and the patterns we were experiencing. She had a wealth of knowledge to draw on which has been so helpful.
Since having Sacha’s support, our baby is settling himself and sleeping for 2 – 3 hour stretches, 2 to 3 times during the day. And only waking once or twice at night. We can now leave the room before our daughter is asleep and it only takes her about 20 mins to fall asleep by herself and she sleeps from 7:30pm to 7am.
It has changed our whole life. We have a happy content little baby who’s not whinging to be held every time we put him down, we are less anxious about what he needs, less overwhelmed overall and have so much more time for my toddler during the day. And in the evening, my husband and I even have time for a cup of tea and hang out together without the kids! Oh, and extra bonus.. more sleep for all of us! It’s been so great and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Jacquie and Dylan, with Sebastian (4 months)
Sacha was always very professional and knowledgeable so we felt reassured the
program was going to work from the beginning. We felt Sacha could relate to what we were experiencing, especially with her midwifery background and four of her own children. Sacha was encouraging, supportive and very understanding of our concerns. During the follow up period we always felt listened to and Sacha reassured us and helped us stay consistent whilst providing suggestions along the way. Our greatest challenge were naps; it was taking 30mins for us to put Sebastian down for a nap by rocking or patting. Since doing the program, Sebastian now self-settles for his naps usually on his first put down and rarely needs to be picked up, which has taken the stress out of naps at home and given us more time.
Jordan and Brad, with Jamie (11 months)
Mahli and Karl, with Freddy (7 months)
We felt like we were slowly falling into some bad habits as a result having more and more broken sleep through the nights, combined with catnapping through the days. We were a bit lost as to how to help our almost 7 month old. After our program with Sacha we are all having much more consolidated sleep! Our baby is happy and content in his cot, and often needs no help to happily fall asleep. Thank you Sacha!
