Doula and Certified Sleep Coach, Anna Roch Deus is founder of MyMamaDreams and a native of Barcelona. She provides support services to expectant mothers and their families through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Whether through online consultations or in the comfort of your own home, she also provides support services to alleviate parental concerns and help babies and young children to sleep better. Having lived in London for a number of years, Anna is now back in her hometown of Barcelona. She finds immense satisfaction in supporting women and their families through the beautiful and transformative journey of welcoming a new baby into their lives.
Anna offers 3 stage doula support: preparing you and your partner for an active birth in which you are aware of your choices and in charge of your decisions, accompanying you and your partner to the birth itself, and providing active support during the first weeks after your baby’s arrival.
Anna also recognises the crucial role sleep plays in a child’s development and the well-being of parents. That’s why Anna specialises in guiding families through the developmental sleep phases their little ones experience, employing gentle and evidence-based practices. Anna has accreditation from OCN London and the Child Sleep Institute in the US. She has a comprehensive understanding of the enchanting and intricate biological dynamics involved in an infant’s sleep.
Quality sleep plays a pivotal role in the holistic development of every child, and it’s equally vital for the well-being of parents. With a gentle and nurturing approach to sleep practices, Anna’s focus lies in fostering a strong bond between the infant and caregiver, as this connection can have a profound positive impact on sleep. By recognising the significance of this relationship and its influence on sleep patterns, Anna aims to create a harmonious and restful environment for both the child and their caregivers.
“Through personal experience with my own child’s recurring fevers and their profound effect on sleep, I was motivated to acquire specialised knowledge by seeking guidance from reputable sleep clinics and experts. From personal experience as a new mama and as an expat living in London, I understand the unique challenges that come with becoming a parent while being away from home. I know first-hand how valuable the support of an expert can be, and now aim to help others have the best possible experience in their journey into parenthood. “
