Nichole Clayholt

It’s finally come true… I am officially a Certified Sleep Expert and a Certified Lactation Counsellor (Registered in good standing with Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice)!! This is a wonderful dual certification and I am beyond excited at the new services I am able to offer our Sleepwell families. Parenthood can be a wild journey, but consider me a compassionate, dedicated and knowledgable co-pilot for wherever your journey takes you:)
A little about me….Wow! How far you can come in a short period of time! Before the arrival of my daughter I had very idealistic dreams about how sleep would go in our household, and never before have I been so wrong. I was in absolute awe how one tiny 5 lb. human could cause so much havoc in so little time. We struggled a great deal with colic, reflux, breastfeeding challenges and of course sleep. The old adage….what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, rings so true! The road to parenthood, was a steep learning curve, but I am grateful for every lesson in hindsight. We worked with Sleepwell as clients and I was overwhelmed with the extraordinary transition we made, suddenly I had a fun-loving, happy baby, simply because she was getting the sleep she needed.
It didn’t take me very long to realize that this profession, was also a wonderful place in the world for me. I love waking up each day to make someone else’s day just a little brighter. I have a true passion for helping children learn the skill of independent sleep, because I have seen first-hand the incredible difference it can make for the entire family. I believe that helping children learn to sleep is a gift we give them for the rest of their lives, and one that will always treat them well. As I am preparing to have baby number 2 I have developed a specific passion for helping families welcome brand new little ones into their lives. I believe wholeheartedly in the information and guidance we provide in the Getting Ready for Baby package- confidence stems from starting out on the right foot.
When I am not chasing my sleep consultant/ lactation counsellor dreams, I am busy farming with my daughter and my husband in east-central Alberta. In my “spare-time” I enjoy gardening, cooking, baking and am forever tackling a “project.” My husband and I are very blessed both of our families are close by, and our daughter is already the best combine riding/cow checking/potato digging one year old in the area!
The process of learning independent sleep is often a big decision for families and I promise to work closely with you to help you meet your sleep goals. I have a great passion for this profession, and it spills over into excitement, encouragement and dedication to your family’s success.
