Meet Jessica Begley, MPH

Founder, Principal Certified Child Sleep Consultant, Certified Lactation Counselor

I’ve been that tired mom…
When I had my first child, I didn’t realize how important a healthy foundation for sleep was. Like so many families, we struggled with early morning wake ups, frequent night wakings, and sleep terrors. I read numerous sleep books by the most popular, well-regarded sleep experts. The varying opinions were overwhelming. I was sleep deprived and just couldn’t make sense of it all. What I really wanted was someone to hold my hand and guide me through the process. I realized that there was nowhere in Maine to turn for this type of personalized attention.

I created The Baby Sleep Geek to change this…
Since then I have become trained as a child sleep consultant through the Family Sleep Institute. This evidence-based training has given me the knowledge to help your entire family get better rested. I also have a master’s degree in public health with a concentration in maternal and child health and am a certified lactation counselor. I have spent the past 13 years teaching childbirth education, infant care, and breastfeeding. Simply stated, helping new families thrive is my passion.
