Irene Gouge

Irene Gouge, founder of Loving Lessons Sleep Consulting & Postpartum Doula Solutions
Irene was one of the first 50 graduates of The Gentle Sleep Coaching Program under Kim West (AKA the Sleep Lady) –currently the most extensive and professional sleep certification program available.  In her earlier years, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Illinois State University, worked for The Walt Disney World Company, taught elementary and middle school, and ran a home daycare. 
Her decision to found Loving Lessons Sleep Consulting & Postpartum Doula Solutions was based on her belief that everything is learnable–even sleep. Since then, she has empowered hundreds of tired parents to implement gentle sleep solutions and positive parenting strategies for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.   Known for fostering love, trust, and a secure attachment between parent and child, Irene endorses a loving, compassionate, and non-judgmental approach to parenting. Her goal is to make sleep-filled nights and sweet dreams a reality for families. 
A resident of Holly Springs since 2004, Irene enjoys spending time with her husband, Keith, and her two sons, Connor and Bailey.  She loves reading, drinking coffee, listening to podcasts, and supporting women in their businesses.
