Class fee is $350. This includes a $100 deposit to hold your place in class, and covers the student workbook, all materials and handouts, and access to extensive lending libraries.
We offer a $50 discount to couples who are planning an out-of-hospital birth with one of our local birthing centers and midwives.
There is a $100 deposit to hold your place in class. Once this deposit is paid, your space is reserved and cannot be sold to another couple. Therefore the deposit itself is non-refundable.
The remainder of class fee is due at the end of class 1, unless other arrangements have been agreed upon.
No refunds are provided after class 2 has ended. The Bradley Method® may not be taught in fewer than 10 weeks, and there would not be time to add a replacement student after this point in the series.
In the event that all couples are in agreement, a class may be able to be rescheduled. In that case, there would obviously be no additional charge. (This is most likely to become an issue around certain holidays).
Class is intended to run 12 weeks on the same night each week. We plan our schedules for this. Therefore make-up classes are not a guaranteed option. If you are personally unable to attend one class, it can often be made up via email. However, some classes really require more interaction than others, and email is not always adequate.
Please discuss your needs with us in advance if you will be missing multiple nights of class or need a one-on-one/make-up session for any other reason, so that we can make arrangements to work with you. Due to the added strain on our family time, we charge $50 per night for an individual/make-up class.
Please understand that we have other demands on our time, so until scheduled and confirmed via email, we cannot and will not guarantee that a make-up class will be possible. It is always best to schedule at least a few weeks in advance if you will need one. We are invested in your positive outcome, so we will always do our best to work with you, but we must reserve the right to decline.
The Bradley Method® is most effective when taught in a 12 week series to a group of 3-6 couples (we find 4 couples to be ideal). However, there are times when a couple is unable to attend class with the group for one reason or another. If you need to request a one-on-one series, the fee is $750.
