Consultation Packages

It is my goal to be able to offer consultation packages that meet your needs.  Consultations are held in either my home  or a predetermined location such as a conference room at the Rochester Public Library, although I am able to travel if required.  More details are available by phone, 515-441-4905 or email  Most packages also include a minimum 2-week carrier rental from my personal lending library.

Standard Consultation-$45

90-minute appointment ($30 for 1 hour). This is designed for 1 baby and their parent(s) [non-parent caregivers are welcome, but maximum 2 adults please].  We will cover the benefits of babywearing and go over safety before demo-ing carriers.  You will get to practice with either your baby or a weighted doll.  At the end of your session you will be able to select one carrier from the library to take home for a 2 week period (deposit fee required, refundable) If during this period you find the carrier is not right for you, you may swap it for a different carrier (if it is made available).

Group Consultation-$60

90 minutes.  This consultation type is designed for a small group with similar aged babies (up to 4 babies + caregivers).  The price includes 2 carrier rentals; additional carriers may be added for $15, up to 4 per group.  Content of the session is outlined in the Standard Consultation description.

Follow Up Consultation

$20 for up to an hour.  This appointment is for people who have previously participated in a Standard or Group Consultation and would like additional support, practice, etc.  It includes an additional 2-week sling rental.

Carrier Demo

$15 for up to 45 minutes.  This appointment is aimed at those looking to learn about different carriers.  Maybe you are an expectant parent or grandmother who is interested by the thought of babywearing but do not know where to begin before baby arrives.  During this consultation I will briefly explain the benefits of wearing, show you different types of carriers and how they work. This does not include a carrier rental.

Carrier Clinic-$20

Up to an hour.  If you already own a carrier but want to learn how to use it, this is the appointment for you. This does not include a carrier rental.

Nine In, Nine Out Package-$60.

This package includes 3 separate consultations and would be ideal as a gift to expecting parents or for parent/caregivers wanting to get very familiar with carriers from the start.  The package includes a 30 minute Demo Session, before baby arrives.  Once your little tummy dweller has made his/her arrival we will do a 90 Standard Consultation, I can come to you to allow for easy feeding and changing etc. You will get to select the carrier you felt most comfortable with to take for an extended 4-week rental period. The final meeting will be a Follow Up Consultation.  This can take place right after the 4-week rental or any time in the next 6 month, and includes an additional 2-week rental of the sling of your choice.


These will be announced on our Facebook page, they cost $5 per person and all funds will go towards growing the local lending library for Rochester and SE MN Babywearers.
