Consultation and Support in English
Coaching for Infant Care, Baby Wearing & Cloth Diapers
Beside individual infant care support I am also a babywearing and Cloth diaper educator. You can visit my workshops, gaining a lot of experience wrapping and diapering the Babys in love.
In many cases home-consultation is the most effective way for me to observe both parents and child. During the home-consultation I will ask a wide range of questions in order to assess the situation and propose a fit-for-purpose recommendation. This will be based on your specific request for help and ultimately you decide how you want to feed, diaper or carry your baby.
An average initial home consultation takes about an hour-and-a-half and includes an aftercare check via telephone or a brief email exchange. After my visit you will receive a report of my findings and recommendations.
Many health insurance policies cover parts of the costs of infant care workshops. To find out what your plan will cover specifically, contact your insurance provider directly. I do not bill your insurance company but I do provide a bill for you to submit claim directly to your insurance company. Some insurance companies require a written referral from either a GP, gynecologist or paediatric doctor!
The rate for a home consultation is 60,-€/ hour for infant care.
The first consultation takes 90 minutes, after this accurate quarterly account.
For consultations at weekends, late evening or holidays and for house visits an additional cost will apply.
After the first home visit/appointment, contact via telephone or e-mail will be charged separately.
