I enjoy a solid relationship with “homeophatic praxis SHI” in Zug. They
offer 24h emergency homeopathic support and I can extend this to you, should you
have strong affinity to or experience of homeopathic medicine and treatment.
Paid consultations by telephone to them are the conduit to finding appropriate
homeopathic solutions and remedies to your ailment. The invoice is then sent
directly to you from them. This
additional offer can be discussed between us at your calling.
I’d be happy to see if there’s a way we can work through or around this. Please call me and we can discuss options.
What a Doula doesn't do:
- I won’t carry out any medical or physical examinations and treatments.
- I will
neither make decisions of any kind for you nor will I speak directly to
the clinical staff (doctor or midwife) regarding any medical issues you face.
- However we will discuss and strategise your wishes and needs before, during and after child birth, and I can support you by attempting to open and deliver to you the emotional and cognitive space and tools you need to make integrated, considered and well-informed decisions with the medical care providers.
Appointments are contractually and fee binding 24hrs prior to appointment and any cancellations made in this period will be billed. In the event that you need to cancel or change the date and time of our meeting, please be so kind as to inform me as soon as possible.
