Terms & Conditions
TERMS & CONDITIONS - Positively Pregnant Hypnobirthing workshop
IN PERSON / LIVE WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
A non-refundable deposit of 50% of your total course is due on booking in order to reserve your place on either a private or group workshop date. The Remaining balance for your workshop will be due no later than 3 weeks prior to your workshop date if using a payment plan option.
The balance fee will be repaid in full if your baby arrives before the course. This is the only circumstance under which a full refund will be made.
The 50% deposit for your course is non-refundable in any other circumstances.
The full fee is 100% due should you need to cancel or amend the course date that you are booked onto when less than 6 weeks before the course start.
Should you cancel your booking, and you have already received your MP3 bundle (value £10) or your Online Workshop materials package (value £20) the costs of these materials will be deducted from your refund.
Where possible Positively Pregnant will endeavour to amend your course date if you absolutely need to change dates. Any date amendment made with more than four weeks to your course date will incur a £20.00 administration charge.
Cancellation due to a change in personal circumstances or a change of mind will not be accepted, and the balance will remain due in full.
Cancelation by Positively Pregnant
In the very unlikely circumstance in which Positively Pregnant is in a position where your workshop is unable to go ahead, your workshop will in the first instance be re-arranged at your earliest convenience, or a full and prompt reimbursement will be made within 30 days of your Workshop date.
In the event that your ‘In Person’ workshop needs to be changed to a virtual/ video workshop due to Health and Safety reasons, or due to the Covid19 Pandemic, you will be given this opportunity in the first instance.
If you choose not to accept this virtual option for your workshop, a refund minus your non-refundable deposit will be made within 30 days of your Workshop date.
