Our Story

We are Calm & Bright. We believe in empowering parents to enable their family with solid sleep.

Eve

Eve: Founder, Sleep Supporter and Mum of Four

People sometimes think the reason I can help families with solid sleep is because my four children are perfect sleepers, but it’s quite the opposite. While 12 solid hours a night is now our norm, it is only because I was once where you might be now (wracked with crippling exhaustion) that I can empower families like yours.

Twelve years ago, I was a first-time mum to a 10-month-old baby who I was determined to raise with the highest level of love and attachment possible. I vowed I would see to her every need, night and day. I would never let her cry and I would never let her struggle.

Gemma: Founder, Sleep Supporter and Mum of Three

When my sister started Calm & Bright she had a vision. She wanted to provide the kind of ‘rescue’ that she herself had been so desperate for. She wanted to help, support and encourage exhausted, sleep-deprived families like her own because she had been on her knees and had guided her own way out of it. Eve has been like this since she was a little girl – always seeing how she can make others feel better.

After witnessing my big sister struggle through years of sleep deprivation, watching her come out the other side was incredible. She was a different person. When I went on to have my own children and suffer my own sleepless nights, Eve was not only there to love me as a sister – she was able to guide me through some of the darkest, toughest moments of my life, because she knew another way.

Lucy

Lucy: paediatric nurse, Sleep Supporter and Mum of Three

Hi I’m Lucy, senior sleep supporter and paediatric nurse from Devon. Gem and I work at the same hospital in Devon. We have even worked on the same team together. I’m an IVF mummy of 3 – two of them twins. Guilty pleasures include online shopping (I love it, my bank account and husband not so much.) I find great pleasure in all things cake-related.

When Eve & Gem found me, they said they were looking for someone with the same philosophy and passion as them. I feel so thankful that they saw in me what they were looking for.  The work we do is so rewarding. It feels a genuine privilege to be part of people’s lives as I support them on their individual journey to solid sleep. I can’t imagine a time where I won’t feel grateful this job and being part of this incredible team of women who I get to call my friends.
