Services I Offer
This is a free consultation to see if we are a match! This will give us time to get acquainted and for me to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding my services. This also allows us time to meet the whole family. During this consultation, we will also discuss our next meeting which will involve your prenatal services and meal prep and planning services if you choose these services.
