Funke Afolabi-Brown, MD

Sleep Physician, Speaker, Coach


I am a triple board-certified sleep medicine physician passionate about helping people discover the gift of sleep as a superpower. As a speaker, an educator, a writer, and the founder of RestfulSleepMD, I help busy professional women and their children prioritize sleep to not only achieve their optimal health but also thrive and live to their fullest potential.

As a physician in practice for over a decade and  a mom of two, I fully understand the impact of sleep deprivation on our mental, physical and emotional health. As a result of this, I have dedicated her career to helping professional women be their best selves. I achieve this through speaking, coaching, courses, and programs focused on educating and empowering busy professional women to make sleep a priority as a critical pillar of their health.

I am a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, The American Academy of Pediatrics, and The Amerian Thoracic Society. 

I am a frequent speaker at various conferences, summits, workshops, and association meetings.
