Registration Information

Pre-registration is required for all classes

Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis; last-minute registrations may be accepted, space permitting. You can use our secure online payment system to register and pay in full for classes with a VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express card.

Discount for Multiple Classes

Sign up online for two or more classes for expectant parents at the same time and you will receive an automatic 5% off your total. You must register and pay in full for classes at the same time in order to receive the discount. The discount applies to any combination of two or more onsite and online classes.

Refund Policy

A full refund, minus a $25 cancellation fee will be provided upon request up until one week before a class begins. After that time, refunds will not be issued, though you may transfer your registration to another class. Once we are within 24 hours of a class beginning, no refunds or credit transfers will be permitted. 

Flex Accounts, Medical Savings Accounts & Insurance

Flex accounts and various other types of medical savings and reimbursement accounts may cover the cost of childbirth preparation, breastfeeding, and newborn care classes. Please check with your plan provider prior to registering to see if you qualify. Some plans allow direct debit access, while others will require you to submit your receipt for reimbursement. We are not set up to accept any insurance directly, including Medicaid.
