General Statement

By using the services of Eyre Lactation and Midwifery, you are agreeing to and accepting the terms and conditions displayed on this website.

Eyre Lactation and Midwifery reserves the right to, from time to time, change these terms and conditions without notice. Whilst we will do our best to keep current clients informed of any changes, by using our service, you agree to be bound by the revised terms, whether or not you have reviewed them.

Eyre Lactation & Midwifery advises you to check this page regularly.

Payment terms

Fees are payable in full on the day at the end of a consultation. Cash or EFT (surcharge 1.9%). A receipt will be provided at payment, to assist with claims to private health care.

Travel costs apply for over 20km from Port Lincoln. Each kilometer is a charge of $1.10 per/km thereafter.

Note: if more than one visit per location price of travel will be negotiated between parties.

Medicare rebate for consultations with Katie

As an endorsed midwife, you are given the opportunity to claim Medicare rebates for lactation/midwifery services.

Katie’s collaboration with Dr Kris Bascomb provides her the ability to provide these services therefore if there are any issues or concerns, collaboration will occur. Claiming through Medicare can occur following full payment at consultation and the rebate amount will be deposited back into your nominated Medicare account.

Please note the Medicare rebate can only occur from pregnancy up until 6 weeks 6 days post birth.

Following 6 weeks and 6 days post birth (when Medicare rebates conclude), some private health rebates still continue.

However, not all private health funds cover lactation and midwifery services. Please check with your fund if our services are covered by your fund.

Cancellation Policy

In the event of having to cancel or change your booking, our cancellation policy is as follows:

  • Cancelled booking more than 48 hours prior to the scheduled time, no charge payable by you.
  • Cancelled booking less than 48 hours prior to the scheduled time, 50% of the consultation fee payable at the time of cancellation.

If given appropriate notice, we are more than happy to reschedule. Only one rescheduled appointment will occur at no cost to you. If you have rescheduled once already and you cancel the second time, this is considered a cancellation and fees will apply at the time of cancellation.

Reversal of monies paid will incur a 3% administration fee (regardless of reasons for cancellation).

We reserve the right to use our discretion depending on circumstances. If an appointment is cancelled at the last minute, another client may have been turned away.

Gift Certificates

Gift vouchers are NOT eligible for Medicare Rebate, non-transferable, not redeemable for cash and must be used by expiry date.
