In relation to my doula package work, with sufficient notice of engagement, you will receive a personalised written contract that we will agree upon. Paying your deposit payment makes this a binding contract.
In relation to my consultations and any services bookable from this website without any initial chat; these services are non-refundable e.g. A Standard 1.5 hour Carrying Consultation. Please see the terms and conditions of each specific service. If you pre-book a block of my hours, these may only be cancelled and potentially, partially refunded if it becomes apparent that a client and I are unable to work together directly after the ‘initial free chat’.
I welcome feedback on the services I provide. I aim to send out a feedback evaluation form to all clients after providing services, this is anonymised. You are also welcome to leave reviews and any recommendations on the Doula Sophy social media Facebook and Instagram platforms, as well as Google business ratings and reviews.
