Common Scheduling Questions
How soon can I make an appointment? Doula Mae schedules appointments during weekdays between 9am and 7pm with occasional weekend hours upon request. We do our best to accommodate everyone and make it a simple process, if our schedules are conflicting you will be put in contact with another CPST.
How long does an appointment take? It varies. Some people just need the reassurance and the check is speedy, while others have never used a car seat before and need a bit more hands on education. However, a typical education and installation check of one seat takes approximately 30 minutes. With that being said once your intake is submitted Doula Mae will inform you of the amount of time being scheduled to ensure there education and installation is complete.
Should I bring anything to my appointment? YES! We ask that you please bring your vehicle manual, the car seat manual, and the installed car seat. Looking at the car seat and it's manual prior to our appointment will help you better understand the education given to you. *NOTE: manuals can often be found online or by contacting the manufacturer .
Disclaimer: The education provided here on the website and in-person should be used along with specific instructions from your vehicle owner's manual and car seat instruction manual.
