Who provides the courses?
I faciliate all the courses. I am passionate about providing childbirth education that is evidenced based (not biased) information Guest speakers such as parenting experts are occasionally invited to the parenting afternoon.
How do I pay?
All payment details will be sent to you on completion of the booking form. Receipt will be issued on receipt of payment.
Can I claim a rebate from my Health Fund?
Yes. I am registered with many health funds. Most health funds offer a rebate for antenatal classes although it will depend on the type of cover you have. It is recommended that you enquire with your health fund directly to check if you will be rebated for attending classes.
Does my partner need to come – can I attend any of the courses by myself?
Yes, you can attend by yourself. Ideally it would be beneficial for partners to attend the courses but sometimes partners are unable to attend, therefore women are very welcome to attend by themselves. A single payment would apply if coming by your self, or if bringing a friend/support person the cost would be as per couple.
Where are the courses held?
Saturday courses are held in the Newlands Room at St Johns Uniting Church, Yeo Street, Neutral Bay. The room is air conditioned and comfortable. Bean bags and mats are there for your extra comfort. Private birth courses and the evening calmbirth® courses are held in Frenchs Forest.
What do I need to bring?
It is encouraged that women wear comfortable clothing that is suitable for relaxing (as well as getting out of bean bags should you use one).
