I can offer a range of different consultations to suit. Either in your own home or by arrangement at my home in Port Seton. Whether you are just looking to get some help with a sling you already have, or are completely new to carrying. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable enviroment for you to learn a new skill. Each consultation allows you to try a few different slings with either your own child or my lovely demonstration baby Jemima.
If there is not a package that you like, please drop me an email and we can discuss something suitable. I can offer consultions covering tandem and twin carrying, additional needs, as well as an introduction to woven wraps. I am happy to tailor consults to you and your childs needs.
I do work almost full time so my availability for consultations is generally Tuesday/Saturday/Sunday and some evenings during the week.
Newbie Consultation - £55 for 2 hours across 2 sessions (Home Visit £60)
This is a great opportunity to get to know about slings before baby arrives. The first session takes place before baby arrives and the second session after baby is here. The first session will cover safety and help you choose a sling and the second session will be for troubleshooting and fitting. This is for two sessions totalling 2 hours and includes 2 week hire of a chosen sling.
Rookie Consultation - £35 for 1.5hr ( Home Visit £45)
This is an introduction to basic safety and babywearing. Ideal for those who are new to babywearing with children of any age. I can cover the different kinds of slings available and go through how to safely carry your child. There is the opportunity to try on a variety of slings and see what you feel comfortable with. This includes a months hire of your chosen sling.
Moving on Up - £25 for 1hr ( Home Visit £35)
If you have been using a carrier for your newborn and are ready to move up on to something else then this is the consultation for you. As you have a good understanding of carrying your child we can go straight to looking at what will be the right carrier for you. We can also go over back carrying your child, and the different ways to safely get them up on your back. This includes a months hire of your chosen sling.
Basic/Troubleshooting £15 for 30mins (£25 including hire of sling)
A fit and hire appointment allows you the opportunity to try one or two different carriers before hiring. It can also be used if you need any help with your own sling.
Doorstop Hire £15
If you are an experienced baby wearer and are looking to just try out a sling then you can arrange to pick up a sling out of hours.
GROUP CONSULTATIONS - £20 per person ( min 3 ) for 1.5 hrs
These can be arranged to suit each individual group. I can pop along to your home and go over it with a group of friends. You can let me know the ages of your children and I can bring along slings to suit.
