We would normally recommend that you arrange to have 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.
Usually, it costs £250 but if you are referred to us by a friend or by one of our partnership programmes, this fee is waived.
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 include anyone you like! Most of our clients prefer to attend as a couple, but you are also welcome to include 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 have the following information before we start:
- 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.
We offer tailored advice about what baby kit to choose. Our advice is honest, unbiased and based on experience.
Over the last 25 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!
It's easy. Just contact us and request and introduction to the respective service provider. We will then introduce you directly to make arrangements.
