photo of Gabrielle RussellGabrielle Russell has over 25 years experience in children's services; dealing with sleep disorders, feeding and behavioural issues in babies, toddlers and young children.

As a child professional and mother of two, she identified a staggering need to help parents overcome sleep disorders in babies and children, and provide effective support services and education to parents.

In 2000 Gabrielle established Sleep Rescue offering a range of affordable, highly informative and easily accessible program by way of home and phone consultations. The program offers total support to educate parents in day and night time baby and child routines.

Identification followed by the design, development and highly personalized delivery of a much needed pre and postnatal service, to educate parents in baby and child dynamics and provision of ongoing support, has been the saviour of many sleep deprived parents over the past decade.

Sleep Rescue has a strong and extensive referral network within the medical, hospital, allied health services and selected health fund sectors. This has allowed effective provision of much needed and affordable support services to parents, and close collaboration with doctors and medical specialists.

Gabrielle was recently featured on A Current Affair because of the success of the Parent and Sleep Rescue Programs.

Due to strong public demand from concerned parents and parents-to-be, frustrated at not being able to access information, let alone education, founder Gabrielle Russell, decided to expand the support services portfolio. The outstanding success led to expanding programs and the subsequent forming of Parent Rescue to deliver a range of essential, yet very affordable, educational tools and programs for correct parenting. Programs designed to assist parents and inspire confidence, prior to their baby's arrival and immediately after birth.

Gabrielle has since helped thousands of families. The outstanding success led to expanding programs and services and the subsequent forming of Parent Rescue. As one grateful parent wrote

open quote markHow appropriate that you share your name with an angel, you saved our sanity and probably our marriage. You have our eternal thanks and gratitude and we would recommend you whole heartedly to anyone. In fact we think it should be compulsory for all new parents to have this information prior to the birth of their child. I know I wish I had it for my other children, once again thank you and God Bless.close quote mark (T&N)
