The Reassurance Package - 0 to 12 weeks
The transition into parenthood is more that just the birth of a baby ... it is the birth of parents as well.  And the first few weeks of life lay the most important foundations for the attachment and bonding process between parents and their baby.

Whilst the first few days and weeks after bringing home your new baby can be the most joyful time of your life, it can also be the most overwhelming.

As parents begin the task of developing a loving and connected relationship with their new baby, and make adjustments to their new role, it can also be a time when huge psychological and emotional changes are occurring both for parents and baby.  New parents often feel the need to be nurtured and cared for, especially as they process their birthing experience, and their new role as a parents.

And as their new baby's intense needs create their own series of challenges, parents are often bombarded with a plethora of parenting information and conflicting parenting theories and advice - some of which can have a detrimental effect on a newborn's overall developmental and emotional well-being.

It is not surprising then that many new parents become confused about, or are offered unrealistic expectations about how they or their newborn might behave.  Trying to force their 'square' baby into the 'round' holes of advice offered by well-meaning family and friends about sleep, feeding, crying, bonding, etc, can leave new parents feeling overwhelmed, stressed and anxious ... all of which can transfer directly to their newborn!

One way to avoid this scenario, and be assured that you are launching into parenthood with stedfast confidence and research-based know-how, is to experience The Baby Calmer's Reassurance or Reassurance PLUS Package.

The Baby Calmer knows the value and importance of early parenting support, education, counselling and mentoring in assuring a secure attachment and bonding process between a newborn and its parents.

The Baby Calmer is also deeply passionate about and committed to delivering services that are safe, holistic, research-based, emotion-focused and therapeutically nurturing to parents and their newborns.  As such, the aim of The Baby Calmer's Reassurance and Reassurance PLUS Packages is to provide safe, nurturing support, research-based education, therapeutic counselling and emotion-focused mentoring to new parents during the first twelve weeks of their parenting journey.

During your three hour "Newborn Reassurance In-home MINI Consultation" or your six hour "Newborn Reassurance In-Home MAXI Consultation" you will be invited to ask The Baby Calmer anything you like about newborn sleep, feeding, crying, bonding, trusting your motherly instincts ... as well as how to support and strengthen your existing knowledge and newly developing parenting skills; anything you can think of really, in relation to your new parenting role.  You may even wish to debrief your birth experience, or talk over how you are feeling as you adjust to your new parenting role.  Whatever you and your baby need is what's important.  You and your baby set the agenda ... but if you need some ideas as to what is possible and how The Baby Calmer might be able to help, please feel free to ask!

Booking Process: Your Newborn Reassurance consultation with The Baby Calmer can be booked by telephone or email.

Prior to the commencement of your Newborn Reassurance consultation with The Baby Calmer, you will be required to complete a detailed questionnaire, which will be emailed to you upon booking your consultation, and must be returned to The Baby Calmer 48 hours prior to your consultation.

Pre-payment is Essential -

All Newborn Reassurance consultations are confirmed upon the receipt of a non-refundable, pre-payment. 

Upon receipt of your non-reundable pre-payment, your appointment period is specifically set aside for you, and confirmed.

Payment Terms and Conditions -

  • A non-refundable, pre-payment (in full) is required to confirm all Newborn Reassurance Consultations (via credit card or direct deposit).  Credit card payments (via Paypal) or direct deposit payments must be received by close of business, on the same day the appointment for the initial session was made.  If confirmation is not received by close of business on the same day that the appointment was made, the reserved appointment will be automatically cancelled, and another appointment time will need to be booked.  I do not send out reminders for initial consultation payments. 

  • If, due to an emergency situation or unexpected illness, a Newborn Reassurance Consultation needs to be rescheduled, I offer one rescheduling without any forfeiting of the non-refundable prepayment.  A rescheduled consultation must be re-booked and attended within 30 days of the original session date.  From time to time, there may be extenuating circumstances where I may allow a longer period for rescheduling, and that decision will be at my discretion.  However, no refund will be provided.
