Service Description

This is an in person, face to face consultation, or virtual live session: you decide which. The price includes travel within 30 minutes of Southsea, Portsmouth. Please ask for a quote if you live further afield. A zoom link is automatically created upon booking, however this does not have to be used. The 1.5 hour consultation is ideal if you're new to baby carrying and you would like one to one, in-depth support and information. It will be uniquely adapted to your needs. In any Doula Sophy carrying consultations babywearing/sling use safety information will always be covered. If you already own a sling/carrier you will be assisted to use it comfortably and safely. The consultation will include demonstrations and information on the different slings you may be interested in, only if you so wish of course, showing you a range of suitable options. The pros and cons of the options available to you will also be explored, allowing you to make informed choices. If this service has to be remote it is possible to split the time in two. One 45 minute session prior to you hiring or purchasing a sling/carrier, or prior to your baby's (or babies') arrival and another 45 minute session, for you to try the item on with me on hand to assist and troubleshoot. All carrying consultations offer, optional hire is available at £30 for four weeks (the most popular option), £20 for two weeks or £10 for one week. I do not take a deposit for in person collections. If I am posting the item out to you a deposit may be required and you will need to pay for postage. The opportunity to purchase slings/carriers is also available during the service. LOCATION: During the COVID 19 pandemic remote working may be required and you may not have the option to request in person assistance with carrying consultations. Generally, the service can take place at your home. Additional travel cost may be required for consultations at your home - if you live further than 30 minutes from Southsea - I charge 45p/mile. Please feel free to pop your preference in the comments box of the booking form.
