Terms & Conditions

BOOKINGS *FOR HOME PACKAGES ONLY*

Bookings are essential as spots are limited to just 4 women/mothers per month, per location. This is so we can give the best service to our mothers in need.


 

It is a requirement that at time of purchase/booking you will need to specify:

  • if the selected package is for yourself, someone else or a GIFT (see GIFTING section for details); 

  • the desired package start time;

  • the service location area you or the intended package recipient lives within;

  • if gifting, provide their name, email + your gift message to go on card with the first delivery (optional);

  • and baby's estimated due date for our scheduling purposes as places are limited.

If you select 'I'll reach out when baby arrives' for the package start time, it is your full responsibility to notify us when your baby arrives. Only once notified can we schedule your weekly food delivery/ies and/or treatments. While we request for baby's due date, this is merely a guide for us for booking capacity purposes. You are still required to notify us via email at hello@thegoldenmonth.com to officially begin/book your package. If gifted this is up to the gift recipient. See below section on GIFTING for further details.

GIFTING

The gifter will be sent all booking/order confirmation and information to their email address supplied at checkout. It is up to the gifter to pass on all relevant information to the giftee on how to book. An important email with the subject: Your Home Package Order ✨ What's Next? will be email to you immediately after purchase. This email notification details next steps. It is this email which can be forwarded onto the gift recipient. 

Wile we recommend our Home Packages to begin with one week following birth, we also strongly believe it is never too early or too late to nourishing and nurture the mother.

 

Bookings are subject to availability and we will do our best to meet your timing requests. All subject to availability.

PRIVATE HEALTH

Private Health rebates apply and can be claimed with Acupuncture services & herbal medicine products if your provider covers them. Always call your private health provider to make sure they do, before trying to claim.

DOMESTIC DELIVERIES *FROM OUR ONLINE STORE*


We ship all of our products and Care Bundles Australia wide using Australia Post. Due to our products being handmade fresh, our dispatch time after purchase is 2-5 business days. You will receive an email from Australia Post once your order has been dispatched.

We provide free standard postage to Australian on all orders over $150.00 AUD. Any orders between $0.00 and $59.00 AUD will attract a flat rate postage charge of $10.00 AUD and any orders between $60.00 AUD and $150.00 AUD will attract a $15.00 AUD postage fee. Express postage is available at a flat rate of $15.00 AUD.

Delivery times may be extended during busy periods and/or at the time of a promotion/sale. You will receive an email from Australia Post to notify you when your order has been dispatched which includes tracking information.

We use Australia Post postage service for all orders (Standard Shipping and Express Shipping). Please allow 3-6 business days after your order has been dispatched for standard delivery and 2-3 days for express. This timeframe is intended as a guideline only, and orders may take longer at times - particularly if you are located in a regional area.

 

Once shipped the delivery of the parcel is the responsibility of our parcel carrier and not The Golden Month.

We recommend you to direct your order to an address where someone will be available to sign for it during delivery hours. If a mobile number is provided, we offer the customer the choice to provide Australia Post authority to leave the parcel at the property if they are not home or if they would like this delivered to the local post office for collection. This is at your own risk we cannot be held responsible for any missing parcels.

LOST OR DAMAGED PARCELS

Any delays experienced after your order has been dispatched will need to be followed up with our parcel carrier, Australia Post, direct on 13 76 78. You can track your items following the link provided in your dispatch email or by clicking here

In the event of a missing or damaged parcel, an investigation will need to be lodged with Australia Post by the customer by calling 13 76 78 and quoting the tracking number provided. It can take up to 10 business days to receive an initial update on the whereabouts of the parcel, status of the investigation and/or resolution (SLA). During this time The Golden Month cannot be held responsible and therefore offer any replacement or refund (for postage only) until the parcel is located or the investigation is resolved by the parcel being delivered or deemed as 'lost'. 

In the event of a parcel being deemed as 'lost' the customer will need to notify Frankly Eco via email at info@franklyeco.com including the investigation number and proof/confirmation of the 'lost' status from Australia Post. In this instance, a replacement order will be sent via standard postage to the customer. If the customer paid for express postage, Frankly Eco will refund the express postage amount only.

INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
 

We ship worldwide and shipping costs are calculated based on total parcel weight:

  • 0-1kg = $14.95 AUD

  • 1-3kgs = 19.95 AUD

  • 3-8kgs = $49.95 AUD

  • 8+kgs = $99.95 AUD

 

Please allow 5-12 business days for your order to arrive, once it has been shipped. Some countries may incur delays. There may also be delays associated with customs in your local country. The Golden Month will not be liable for such delays.

INTERNATIONAL DUTIES & TAXES
 

The Golden Month will not be responsible for the payment of any customs levies, duties or taxes that may be associated with international delivery in your local country. Customers will be solely responsible for any such fees. We, therefore, ask that you please make yourself aware of them before confirming your order.
