Petra certified Gentle Sleep Coach


I am Petra Čubretović and I am a certified Gentle Sleep Coach® for babies, toddlers, and children up to 6 years old. As a mom of three beautiful girls, a passion for sleep, a wealth of international experience, and being trained by the founder of Gentle Sleep Coaching - Kim West, also known as the Sleep Lady - I feel confident to say that I can help you to get your nights back and let your little ones and yourself thrive again personally and professionally - with more and better sleep.  

I believe that parenting doesn’t have to go hand in hand with sleepless nights for an unforeseen period of time. I help parents like you to transition from feeling utterly exhausted and desperate to getting your sanity and your nights back, and your little ones thriving and happy - with a 95% success rate

I hope to be able to guide and support you, and give you direction and confidence on your journey to understanding sleep and knowing how to turn your exhaustion into blissful nights while feeling happier and healthier. 

Can’t wait to hear from you!


Petra ❤

sleep philosophy

I am dedicated to supporting you while your child learns one of the most valuable life skills: SLEEP. As a Gentle Sleep Coach®, I don’t train your child personally. Instead, I will be coaching you, the parent, to become your child’s coach as he/she gradually learns the new skill of falling asleep and staying asleep on his own (if age and developmentally appropriate). In turn, you can enjoy parenthood and life without stress and overwhelm again.


I will work with you to create a fully personalised, step-by-step holistic and evidence-based sleep plan that will factor in your parenting philosophy, your child’s age, health and temperament, mom’s and dad’s well-being, and the related family dynamics. And most importantly I will support and coach you through the process from beginning to end, with as few tears as possible.


It is important to me that we do it gently, and gradually, and that we honour your family’s needs. If, for example, you would like to continue breastfeeding or co-sleeping, then that's okay too!


The Gentle Sleep Coach Program

The first and most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available. The program involves a strict selection procedure and over 80 hours of training with a faculty panel that includes medical doctors, a psychologist, an attorney, lactation counsellor, postpartum doulas and a family therapist. Each coach must pass exams and participate in case mentorship with Kim West, LCSW-C (also known as the “the Sleep Lady”) who has been helping tired parents for over 25 years.
