wearthemwithlove will have been trading for 3 years in April, and in that time I have never changed my pricing. The pricing as you see it today on my website is based on market research that I did when I started my business in Shropshire in 2013.
In those 3 years I have gone on to complete 3 more babywearing training courses with Trageschule UK. I have supported countless families through sling libraries, over 100 parents/carers in 1-2-1 consultations and many more in group workshops plus trained 11 healthcare professionals and 6 babywearing peer supporters. I have also given away a lot of my time and expertise for free in my after-care follow-up emails to clients and at local baby and toddler groups, and in many other informal settings.
The training I have undertaken, my knowledge and experience (even before I became a Babywearing Consultant) shapes the way I work. I pride myself in enabling families to carry their baby safely, comfortably and with confidence and am always proud of the excellent results we (i.e. my client/s and I) achieve.
With this is mind, 2017 is the year of pricing changes for wearthemwithlove. From 1st February I am increasing the pricing of the services I offer to reflect the quality of the support, advice, tuition/training and after care my clients receive. Here are my new prices:
- Bump-to-baby package, £90
- One-to-one/family consultation, £60
- Quick fix consultation, £30
- Group workshop, £25 per person
So, if you have been wondering whether to book some bespoke support… now is the time to do it! For appointments in January I will still hold the current prices and these are the savings you will benefit from:
I have very limited availability for the rest of January so don’t miss out, you can book your session by emailing me: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important to me that I am absolutely transparent about why I am increasing my prices. This is essential to ensure that my business is viable and that the prices take into account:
- My level of training, experience and ongoing continuing professional development.
- The actual time spent on each session (i.e. preparation time, the session itself and the after-care service).
- Travel time and costs up to a 20-mile radius to deliver support in my clients’ own home right where it is needed.
Some things will remain the same…
My sling hire fees for families wishing to try out a sling/carrier in the local area will remain the same at £5 per week or £15 for 4 weeks. I will continue to run RAF Benson Sling Library at a discounted rate of £10 for 4 weeks sling hire and will continue to honour a £10 discount on any of my other services to military families to ensure that they (and the wider community) are supported when facing long periods of separation from loved ones.
