In addition to all that this blog encompasses, Modern Alternative Mama (Kate) is also available for both private consultations and speaking engagements.
If you have a personal situation involving switching your family to a better diet or seeking to live more naturally, Modern Alternative Mama can help. Medical questions in general are not appropriate as MAM is not a certified health practitioner in any way — please seek a qualified health practitioner in your area.
However, questions in the following areas can be answered:
- Helping reluctant family members to embrace real food
- Addressing potential allergies/how to feed allergic family members
- Finding resources for allergy-friendly foods, building your allergy-friendly pantry
- Finding health practitioners who can best serve your family’s needs
- Changing over to more sustainable/reusable materials in your home
- Learning to cook traditional foods
- Breastfeeding help
- …and more!
Brief questions can be asked on our Facebook page, but lengthier answers, or if you want to hear specifically from MAM and not the community can be asked privately through a consultations.
Consultations are charged a flat fee that may vary depending on complexity. For rates and more information, please email us. Include some details about your question so that we can assess if we can best help you (or guide you towards another resource if needed) and let you know up front what we’ll charge. Payment for consultations is due prior to beginning. Consultations may be either via email or phone, or for those who are local, in person.
**The reason consultations are fee-based is because MAM’s time is very limited and her experience and knowledge are extensive. It is sadly no longer possible to give each reader a personalized, in-depth response for free. Readers who wish for free advice may post to our forum or Facebook page to get the community’s feedback.
Modern Alternative Mama has become a major resource in the areas of natural living, real food/traditional food, natural health, homemaking, homeschooling young children, and more. In addition to all her research into this blog, Kate also is a member of Toastmaster’s International, where she is learning to become a professional speaker and leader.
Kate is available for speaking engagements in and around the Central, OH area. This includes at mom’s groups, club meetings, preschools, homeschool groups, and more. Suggested topics are:
- Feeding your baby and toddler
- Feeding older kids well
- Helping families transition to real foods
- Allergy-friendly cooking
- GAPS diet
- Home birth/natural birth
- Cloth diapering
- Using sustainable/reusable products in your home
- …and more!
