How Does Booking Private Classes Work?

  1. Contact me through this site.
  2. I will reach out to you to set up a free phone consultation. In this phone consultation, we will discuss what you think your needs are and I will suggest a customized educational path for you. If you need to develop a class package outside of what is listed above, we can totally do that. Don’t forget to check out this FAQ page before our call. It may answer a lot of your questions!
  3. If you decide to move forward, I will send you dates and times I am available for sessions. We will confirm those dates through Google Calendar invites. Currently, my session availability falls on Monday and Tuesday evenings, as well as 2-3 weekends per month (Saturdays & Sundays).
  4. I will then request a non-refundable deposit for these date confirmations through PayPal. We will confirm how to pay the remainder due (per session or all at once).
  5. Some mileage fees may apply depending on your location around the Kansas City area if we decide to do in-home classes (I will let you know up front).
  6. Childbirth classes usually involve a mother and her birth partner or doula, but sessions for individuals are great as well! I love mentoring all kinds of family structures, so please don’t hesitate to let me know what your needs are.
