*We are not currently able to offer our classes in person due to COVID-19 restrictions. We do offer an online course which you can take anytime.

We look forward to hopefully being able to gather with you in person again in the near future.

Upon registration you will immediately receive an email with all of the finer details of the class, i.e. address, parking, break times, etc.

We highly recommend purchasing a copy of The Birth Partner 5th Edition – this book is the foundation of our class. Although it isn’t necessary, it is a wonderful supplementation to your in person education
