Classes are small (minimum of 2 couples, maximum of 4), creating an intimate setting and allowing lots of time for individual attention.
Classes are usually a total of 15 hours, and meet on a weeknight from 6-9pm (5 consecutive weeks). Weekend classes are also occasionally offered. Note: Each class must have a minimum of two couples registered. $175/couple
No group classes are currently scheduled. Please contact my partner, Ann Kaplan, for her group class schedule. Contact me for info on private classes.
Designed for parents who've already experienced birth, this class is a condensed version of the full class.
Additional topics covered will be tailored to the individual students. Want this birth to go differently than the last one? Had trouble breastfeeding your last baby? We'll discuss how to stack the cards in your favor.
Classes are usually approximately 6 hours, but we can add or subtract time depending on what topics we cover. $20/hour
Childbirth Refresher classes are only offered privately.
