Mothers placed on complete bed rest may make-up the class when released from bed rest or make arrangements for a private in home class. (Additional fees will be charged for an in home class). Please have a letter from your doctor to allow you to take a class or be more mobile.

Due to the nature of our business where a baby may arrive early, we will try and help you in any way we can, however the refund policy is without exception.
