Lauren Heffernan, Founder, Isla-Grace
Certified Holistic Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant, Certified Sleep Educator
Lauren earned a Bachelor of Education at McMaster University and Queensland University of Technology. Four years of teaching Junior Kindergarten through Grade 4 inspired a passion for education and play-based learning.
After giving birth to her first daughter, Grace, Lauren learned the many challenges of navigating motherhood. These included the multitude of books, information, and people with strong opinions on the right way to be a mother. She quickly learned that the best parent to her child was herself and that in trusting her instincts, she would never go wrong.
With this belief, and after certification with the International Maternity and Parenting Institute's Maternity and Child Sleep Consulting Program, and Mohawk College's Breastfeeding Program, Lauren launched Isla-Grace. She provides information and support to women at different stages of motherhood, and walks each one through the personal journey to become a more confident mother.
