Consultations

We would normally recommend that you arrange to come in for your consultation after your 20 week scan and before you are 28 weeks pregnant. This is the ideal time for you to make your important decisions about what to buy for your little one and for us to order all your goodies in time for your baby's arrival.

Yes. If you are on bed rest or you are overseas or just not sure about travelling into London, we will be happy to arrange for you to have a consultation over WhatsApp video, FaceTime or Zoom. Our usual consultation fee will apply.

A private consultation costs £250.

This fee includes:

- exclusive use of our Chelsea showroom giving you the freedom to browse in private

- expert one to one advice from our nursery consultant who will remain with you throughout. Our consultant will spend time getting to know you so that she can advise you on the most relevant equipment for you and your lifestyle

- refreshments and snacks

- a copy of your baby list to take away with you

- admin, handling and storage for your baby list items

- liaison with international shippers, where required

Consultations last around 2 hours, but the timing can vary depending on whether you have already bought certain items and whether this is your first or second baby. We will ask you when you book to provide us with as many details as possible so that we can get the timing right just for you.

You are welcome to bring anyone you like! Most of our clients prefer to come as a couple but many come with friends or relatives. We would recommend keeping numbers to a minimum to give you the best chance to focus on your specific needs. 

It's very useful if you can bring the following:

- width of your front door when open

- dimensions of your nursery

- dimensions of your lift (if you live in an apartment)

- colour swatches so you can match items to your home decor

No, our prices are all set at RRP, which means that anything you buy from us should be the same price as you'd find at any high street retailer. Occasionally, other retailers offer sales and discounts, which we as a small company may not be able to offer or match, but we think that overall, thanks to our valuable advice, you will generally save about 20% on average just by buying the right kit first time!

Yes you can. There is no obligation to buy from us, but there are all kinds of benefits, including sourcing unusual or bespoke items, express delivery of all newborn essentials if baby arrives early, our furniture and buggy assembly service and delivering all your items to you in one go. We can also store your items safely if, for example, you have building works.

Services

We offer tailored advice about what baby kit to choose. Our advice is honest, unbiased and based on experience.

Over the last 24 years, we have found some of the very best people to provide services to new parents and young families from photographers and maternity nurses to sculptors, artists and bespoke rug designers. We can also recommend home safety experts and a wonderful dog trainer

We know that you will love our service providers as much as we do and we couldn't recommend them more highly. We prefer to introduce you individually to ensure that you get the best possible service as an Anita's House client. All you have to do is let us know which service you're interested in and ask us for an introduction.

If the service you are looking for isn't on the list, just send us an email to ask if we can help and we will do our best!
