This agreement will terminate one month after the date of your consultation, daytime or overnight booking. Any continuing support packages may be purchased separately and will be subject to the same terms and conditions explained in this contract, thus extending the agreement length.


Any changes made to these Terms and Conditions must be made in writing and signed by all parties. You may cancel this agreement, in writing, for any reason. If any services are cancelled after payment has been made, refunds are limited to any unearned fees, less a £30 processing fee, up to one month before the scheduled booking.

If you need to reschedule, you must give notice at least 48 hours in advance. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request though this will be at the discretion and availability of Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting.

Acts of God

If an ‘Act of God’, such as a fire, flood, earthquake, or other natural calamity causes you to need to cancel my services, Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting will require payment only for the time actually already spent sleep coaching. This is only applicable to sleep coaching services within the client’s home.

Health Concerns and Medical Conditions

Both parties (Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting and yourselves) will work together on the understanding that my role will be that of a professional Sleep Coach (Consultant) and you agree that none of the advice that Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting provides shall be considered medical advice, nor should it be relied upon by you as medical advice.
You understand that you should always seek the advice of your GP, Health Visitor or Midwife and should consult with any of these, or your child’s Paediatrician if they have one, if you have any healthcare related questions or concerns generally, before embarking on a new sleep program, or if you are concerned about any risks to your baby/child’s health or well-being that may result from your participation in Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting’s services. If a medical issue appears or persists, do not disregard or delay seeking medical advice from your GP or other qualified healthcare provider.
You agree to disclose any medical condition to Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting that you are aware of or suspect your child has. Failure to do so could affect your child’s health and wellbeing and may result in termination of the contract with Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting without notice. No cancellation refund will be offered in such circumstances.
You agree to follow safe sleeping practices in line with SIDS recommendations. For further information on this and best practice to protect the safety of your child , please visit https://

Guarantees of Results

Results of your sleep coaching are entirely dependent on the commitment from you (and any other caregivers) to consistently follow your sleep plan or advice given to you by Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting. There can be no full guarantee of positive results, as many things can impact sleep at various times, including but not limited to: reflux or food allergies, temporary illness, teething, inconsistent sleep environment, reinforcement of unwanted sleep associations, developmental changes, growth spurts, and neurological developments and differences including undiagnosed (or known) additional needs. However, the assessment process and Sleep Plan is comprehensive and tailored to your child's needs and family parenting styles. Following the advice given, unless there are underlying unidentified medical issues, you should see an improvement to your child's sleep patterns and habits if followed consistently.


During the course of my work with you it is possible that I could become aware of sensitive information about your family, career or personal situation. It is understood that this information would remain completely CONFIDENTIAL at all times and never disclosed to anyone without written consent, or a court order. In a similar manner I expect my clients to retain confidentiality also and not to share, duplicate (except for personal use), or plagiarise any documents that I send to you, and to keep these for your family’s personal use only, and that of any caregivers.

Response Times

Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting will endeavour to answer emails, social media messages, correspondence and phone calls within 24 hours maximum except for Sundays. During the support period, as part of your package, I will endeavour to respond to you within 6 hours, or as immediately as possible during the hours of 9am -7pm.
By booking an appointment with me or contracting my services in any way, either directly or through my booking system, you are giving your specific and explicit consent for Dawn Grey Infant Sleep Consulting or Dawn Grey Newborn Consulting to hold the personal data outlined above and for its use as laid out in this policy, and acknowledge that you have fully read and understand this document, and also agree to the terms and conditions above.

I very much look forward to working with you and your family!
