The History of Let Mommy Sleep
Let Mommy Sleep has been providing nurturing, overnight care to newborns and evidence based education to their parents since 2010.
Let Mommy Sleep's CEO, Denise Stern, had twin girls in 2009. As if that wasn't busy enough, she also had a one-year-old son, a husband without paternity leave, and birth complications that left her in very fragile health. Out of this personal experience and with a background in small-business, Let Mommy Sleep was born.
Denise started the Washington DC location in 2010. The concept quickly gained momentum as the country’s leading baby nurse and postpartum care service. Denise is now the CEO of Let Mommy Sleep Franchising, helping others open locations around the US.
After experiencing the incredibly positive impact postpartum care had on the health of families, Stern launched the 501c3 non-profit, Mission: Sleep in 2012. The charity delivers free overnight care to military and first-responder families whose newborns arrive when a parent is deployed, wounded, or deceased.
Let Mommy Sleep has received national acclaim since 2011, after only one year in business. Franchisees are also known as postpartum care experts in their local markets.
A partnership with INOVA Health and a government contract to teach newborn care have created a solid foundation for Let Mommy Sleep to start franchising nationwide. New franchise locations around the country are the first steps to bringing life-changing care to newborns and their families.
Stern’s ultimate goal is to revolutionize postpartum care in America, making it a national norm and aggregating a currently unregulated industry.
