Our policies are based out of our commitment to small class sizes, for the high quality, personalized class experience that distinguishes Harmony from other providers who are willing to “pack’em in” and reduce individualized attention in order to offer lower prices or increase profit margin.
Last minute cancelations or no-shows leave empty spots other families could have enjoyed, or class fees insufficient for the business and instructor to maintain. In order to ensure the highest quality instructors and offerings, we must respect and value our time and yours.
ChildBirth Prep Classes:
A refund or transfer can be made only if completed at least two weeks prior to the start date of the class in which you are enrolled.
A refund or transfer can be made only if completed at least one week prior to the start date of the class in which you are enrolled.
If we have a waiting list and are able to immediately fill your spot with another family, we will be glad to refund your payment.
We will always refund in the case of pregnancy loss. We ask to be notified as soon as someone is reasonably able, again, so we might accommodate other families if possible.
We are sorry, but we cannot pro-rate the cost of a series if you must miss one or more classes within the session, unless stated otherwise on the specific class page. This is, again, due to ensuring small class sizes and because the costs involved in running a series remain the same regardless of the number of families attending week to week.
How can I know when I’ll give birth??
We understand the uncertainty makes planning a challenge!
Since 37-42 weeks is NORMAL full-term gestation, we recommend making your class choices carefully and in advance. We do not recommend planning any non-refundable classes for after 37-38 weeks of gestation.
Even though MOST first-time moms carry to 41 weeks (on average), no one can predict who will begin labor when, so getting all of your classes done by 36-37 weeks at the latest means you can focus on relaxation, practicing what you’ve learned, and letting yoga, massage, and your other skills help your body and mind to be ready.
If you must plan for a late-term class, just be aware that you may lose your payment if you should begin labor sooner, and we are unable to fill your spot.
Make sure to mark your calendars as soon as you enroll! If you miss your class, we may not have another opening before your due date, so you may miss valuable information, in addition to losing the payment.
