Receive free infant and parent sleep information!

Here at the Woolcock Institute, we're offering a novel sleep program to a random half of participants and booklets with similar information to the other half. We are interested in whether this program and/or these booklets will improve mothers’ sleep quality and management of the changes and challenges in their sleep in the postpartum period. We would also like to determine whether improved sleep management can reduce one’s risk of postnatal depression. For participants who receive the program, they will be asked to attend the Woolcock Institute (Glebe) on 2 occasions for 1.5hrs each.
The sleep program and booklets offer information about infant sleep patterns and cycles, settling strategies, strategies to help sleep onset after night waking for the baby as well as how to re-develop healthy sleep patterns later down the track. The program and booklets are free of charge, but all participants will be asked to complete questionnaires prior to giving birth as well as 6 weeks, 4 months and 10months postnatally. These questionnaires can be completed online from home so there is no obligatory face to face contact in the postnatal period.

Participants are eligible if they're in the second or third trimester of pregnancy with their first baby. If you'd like to find out more or would like to enroll, please feel free to contact us on 9114 0495 or

Thanks! Hope to see some of you!
