Private Consultations

Please note that due to the Covid19 outbreak all our private consultations are temporarily suspended in line with Government recommendations.  In the meantime if you need help with an existing sling or would like to explore what options would be best for you and your family please do consider booking an Online Consultation instead.   

A private consultation is the best way of accessing truly personalised advice, teaching and recommendations.  Perfect for anyone who;

  • is new to babywearing
  • is unsure of what might be the best option for them
  • is feeling overwhelmed by choice
  • has been gifted slings or carriers but are not confident using them
  • wishing to learn to back carry for the first time
  • has additional needs or circumstances that may affect carrying (such as twins and multiples, severe back pain, reduced mobility, or a child who has additional needs such as low muscle tone, low birth weight, reflux, hip dysplasia, talpedes etc).

Your session will be designed completely around you, meaning we will focus in on the options relevant to you and go at a pace that suits you and your baby’s needs ensuring that you leave completely confident using whatever you choose going forward.

Where, When and Cost

Your consultation can take place in your home or mine at any mutually agreeable time, weekends or weekdays during school hours.

A consult in my home in East Sheen (SW14 7HU) costs £15 for the first 30 minutes, then £5 for every additional 10 minutes.  Allowing you to simply pay for the time you need on the day.  E.g. if you need 40 minutes then you pay £20, while 70 minutes would cost £40.  A consultation can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on your needs. Based on the information you provide at booking I will provide a realistic estimation of the time you are likely to need.  As a guide most consultations for parents new to carrying take roughly an hour to 90 minutes depending on confidence level and number of options explored.  While a consultation for a for parents with a preexisting sling looking to gain confidence using that carrier might take just 30 minutes.

A consult in your home costs £55 for upto 90 minutes, provided your address is within a 5 mile radius of SW14.  This includes East Sheen, Barnes, Kew, Richmond, Ham, Twickenham, Teddington, Isleworth, Chiswick, Brentford, Hounslow, Putney, Hammersmith, Fulham, Shepherds Bush, Acton, Ealing, Kingston, and Hampton Wick.  If you live further afield please feel free to ask – I may be able to travel, offer you an online consult or better still I maybe able to put you in touch with another sling consultant closer to you.
