Gentle and Trusted Sleep Support

We make sleep easy for you and the little people in your life
so you can focus on all those coveted waking hours together.

Hi, I'm Dr. Denise.

Sleep Specialist. Educator. Mama

I have been where you are. Twice.

Through the all night wakings. The restrictive schedules. The feeding struggles. And the feeling that I must be missing out on some secret magic sauce for making this sleep business a little bit easier.

I trialled allll the sleep training advice and techniques boasted out there (blindly) and put my decade of research expertise into action to try to crack this mystery of baby sleep. And I’ve learned a little something along the way.

I want to save you the headache and pass on to you everything I have uncovered through research, experience and supporting hundreds of families in their sleep journeys.

Don’t worry. There’s nothing prescriptive about it. I value your unique parenting style and the special bond that you have with your baby.

Best Baby Sleep Environment

Science-approved steps to a sleep promoting-environment

Our Philosophy

At MIMC, we understand that baby sleep is both a biological need AND a learned behaviour.

These two driving forces need to align for your baby to transition happily and confidently into the sleep state. Rather than giving you a prescriptive A-B-C to the perfectly sleeping baby, we are all about uncovering the why.

There’s no one way to achieve this alignment. Every parenting style is different. Every baby temperament is different. Every relationship is different.

Why do babies sleep when they do? Why do they need so much of it? Why do they resist sleep when they are clearly tired? And why does sleep change across development?

And then using this as a means of empowering and guiding your choices as a parent.

Tapping in to understand sleep from its core, to really appreciate the internal landscape of your baby, and to let this inform the structures and rhythms that you put in place, allows you to be proactive instead of reactive to your baby’s sleep needs.

All the while preserving that oh-so-important attachment that you have with your little one.

Not your typical "sleep expert"

“I can’t say enough about Denise and MIMC—she’s the superstar sleep whisperer with extensive education, experience and testimonials to prove it. I did my homework, reviewing and even trialing the most popular sleep training plans for months, prior to serendipitously stumbling upon an article Denise wrote. Upon review of her website, I literally had an instant and desperate urge to connect with her—I knew she would be my ticket to weaning the last night feed, which seemed daunting and exhaustingly impossible after 14 months of sleep deprivation! Denise is not your typical “sleep expert.” She isn’t a healthcare-related professional claiming “sleep expert.” Denise is THE PRO, with a PhD in neuroscience. She truly knows all things sleep-related. Not to mention, she is a MOM of two littles with real life and relatable experiences. Yes, she too, has been sleep deprived. She too has spent countless hours on the floor of her baby’s crib, desperate for “just one more hour.” MIMC is affordable, effective, and personal. This is not a typical cookie-cutter, one size-fits-all sleep teaching program. If you want an individualized sleep plan that works for your family, look no further, Denise is your gal!”

– Kohleen, first time mama

Practical and Down to Earth

“Denise helped us navigate some serious sleep struggles with my second born. She was patient, listened and helped make a plan collaboratively, which matched our values and our little guy. Her extensive knowledge helps shed some light on the “why” babies do what they do; however, it’s her practical and down to earth strategies/advice that made navigating these sleep challenges less lonely for both myself and my husband. We now have lots of tricks in our toolbox to help our little guy adapt to new environments and get the sleep he needs. Highly recommend!”

– Dini, mom of two

Support, Reassurance, and Tailored Advice

“After one 60 min chat with Denise, we received the support, reassurance and tailored advice we needed to help our 4-month old smile in his own bed and have improved sleep. I wish had contracted Denise when my first was a baby — a lot of crying and sleepless nights could have been avoided.”

-Ciara, mama of two

Our entire home is healthier and happier

“I was absolutely lost when I began my search for a sleep consultant. My daughter was sleeping relatively well at night, but wouldn’t nap throughout the day, which meant a lot of tear-filled days for both of us. A friend referred me to Denise, and I’m so grateful that she did. Denise was able to find solutions that were comfortable for me to implement, and supported me throughout the entire process. She has a solid understanding of child development and explained everything to me in a very fact-based, straight forward manner, which was excellent for me. Within a couple of weeks my daughter was on a nap schedule, and is now sleeping regularly throughout the day, and sleeping well at night. Our entire home is much healthier and happier because of Denise. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for knowledgeable support.”

-Christina, first time mama

Invest in yourself, your sanity, and your sleep

“Stop reading about Denise and Just. Book. Her. I followed so many sleep consultants on social media and read so many of their blogs, but it was so confusing to try to wade through all of the (often conflicting) information. Even though I have an older kiddo, the second time around didn’t seem any easier on the sleep front.

Fortunately, a mutual friend recommended Denise. Her professional qualifications hooked me immediately, but it was her ability to communicate and her empathy that really sold me on her services. All of those capabilities and skills came through during my time working with her. Within a few days, my 17-week-old baby was going into her crib at night and falling asleep on her own. After a few more days, she was napping independently. And when we hit some trouble with frequent nap wakings, Denise immediately made time to assess the problem and discuss new strategies.

Invest in yourself, your sanity, and your sleep. Book with There’s a Monster in My Closet!”
