If you have had a natural birth but have never taken Birth Boot Camp I teach 2 classes (each 2-3 hrs) $100
*These refresher courses are not condensed version of Birth Boot Camp. The Refresher class includes a comprehensive workbook with relaxation exercises. If you have not taken an in depth childbirth class a natural birth please enroll in the 10 week course.
Birth Boot Camp offers online classes in addition to live classes. A live class is always preferred over the online option. However, if your schedule is just too hectic to accommodate a live class OR you live too far away, but would still love to have the amazing Birth Boot Camp education this is a great option!
