Class Delivery during covid-19

We're staying home, and we want to support you to stay home too.

We know that preparation for birth still matters to all of you. With that in mind, we are transitioning all of our classes scheduled for the upcoming months to live online classes. If you're already registered for a class, you will have received an email update (check your spam folder!). Prior to each class start date, specific access details will be sent to you too.

Accessing your Prenatal Class

This part is easy: we're using Zoom, and its working really well for us. You need an account, and you can download the app to your phone or tablet, or use it on your desktop. You don't need to pay for a membership: we've bought an upgraded account which allows us to host group meetings, at no added cost for you. Get yourself set up here, and familiarize yourself with Zoom before your class starts.

Flexibility of Access

Online classes mean you can access our courses from anywhere. And, if your partner isn't home with you during your scheduled class time, you can each login from different locations. Let us know if you need any additional support, we're here for you and so grateful for your continued business during this time of change. 

What's not Changing

We're still keeping our classes small, and interactive. Every class is live, with opportunities and time for questions, and connection. We know you come to us not just to hear what we know, but to ask your personal questions and to connect within a group. We'll do our very best to ensure that is still possible.
