Personalized Consultations

With each new stage of your child’s life comes so much joy, but also new questions and concerns. I combine the expertise of a nurse, with the care and concern of a mom to partner with you on this wonderful, yet at times confusing and exhausting, parenting adventure.

Infant Basics and Toddler Training offers completely custom family plans through the following consultation options.

In-Home Consult   //  Virtual Consult (phone/facetime)  //   Email Consult

All three packages include 3 months of UNLIMITED email support and encouragement to guide you through the many transitions and developmental changes that happen with your little one. When you register for a consult, I will send you a questionnaire to assist me in getting to know your family and tailoring your support so you feel comfortable and confident in our plan.

If you feel like you don’t need a full consult with follow up support and encouragement then check out my Mini Consults: $2/min on phone or $30 for 3 questions through email. This is great if you have just a few questions and don’t need a full consult.
