Terms & Conditions

Booking
A booking does not constitute the creation of a contract and teacher reserves the right to decline to process a booking for any reason whatsoever. If the booking is not able to be fulfilled the teacher will promptly refund all monies.

Upon sending your booking, The Hampshire Birthing Company will contact you for payment of a £50 non-refundable booking deposit to secure your place. The rest of the fee is due one week before the course starts. Payment is taken via bank transfer (BACS).


Participant Cancellation
The fee will be repaid promptly and in full if your baby arrives before the course or in the very unlikely event of the course being cancelled. These are the only circumstances under which a refund will be made.


Course Cancellation
The teacher reserves the right to amend or cancel any course, course times, dates or published prices. Changes to course prices, times and dates will be advised before the course start date and any course already paid in full will not be subject to any price increase.
