There are circumstances that make pregnancy special. Often particularly exhausting for the mother-to-be. Prescribed bed rest, relatives you care for, single parents, a premature baby, expecting multiples or just a partner who has to work a lot and can’t be with you.

You are not alone in this situation and help and support are particularly important. It doesn’t matter whether it’s talks or I’ll do the administrative work for you.

Frequently Asked

I don’t have a midwife yet – what can I do?

Finding a midwife has become very difficult. Contact me as early as possible in your pregnancy so that I have a better chance of referring you.

From which month of pregnancy does a consultation make sense?

The sooner the better!

There is a lot to organize and do. The more time we have for it, the more relaxed it is. But don’t worry if you’re running late. We can do this together!

Can my partner/husband join our consultation?

Yes – if you have booked one of the consulting packages or individual consulting, your partner/husband can join for free.

For the wokshops online your partner/husband can also join for free. For inhouse workshops I offer to charge a reduced ticket since the spots are limited.

Is there a free trial available?

Yes, a free consultation of 15 minutes is available here. We can check if I can help with your questions and support you the way you need it.

Does the health care provider pay or refund Baby Planner consulting services?

The advice and workshops are unfortunately not covered by the health insurance companies.

But it’s worth it!

– You save the time of research and organization.

– You only buy what your baby really needs.

– With the right forms we can get the most money out of you as a family!

With regard to the advice and acupuncture by the midwife, costs may be covered if necessary. We will of course check this for you.

Can I upgrade my packet later?

Yes, you can update your package for free! Sometimes many questions come up during the process and need more time and consulting.

Can I cancel my plan at any time?

If you a very unhappy with our services, please contact us directly and we will a solution. The payment though is upfront.

How do you provide your services? Inhouse or online?

Online support is available via video calls, WhatsApp, Email or phone.

Inhouse support is available for Koblenz, Bonn and Franfurt/Main. Further cities are charged by distance.

Where do the Workshops take place?

The inhouse workshops will take place in Koblenz at a midwife clinic, as soon as the Covid regulations allow it again. Unfortunately, the workshops are in German (so far). I am working on an English version.
