Consultation and Fees

The parent-child visit fee is $125 for a 1.5 hour session at my home office. ($150 for a visit to your home.)  This fee covers  Jan ‘s review of your history form, the 1.5 hour visit and a  followup phone consultation. Some parent concerns may require additional visits.

Before the consultation parents are sent a history form to capture important family, prenatal and birth history, as well as current parenting concerns. Jan will carefully review this material before the parent-child visit. Both parents or significant others are encouraged to attend the visit. Jan welcomes the family to invite their doula, nurse, lactation consultant, or midwife to attend the consultation, if they desire.
