Group classes are held with other women and their birthing partners. 

Each class is approximately 2.5 hours long and are run over five consecutive sessions.

Group classes can be a great way of meeting other couples that are having a baby (or babies)  at a similar time to you.

It is important for the birthing partner to attend all the sessions too, if possible. Please bring only one (and ideally the same) birthing partner/support person to the class.

Starting the classes anywhere from when you are 20-30weeks pregnant is a great time.

Private classes are one-on-one with Gemma and the birthing couple. They can be delivered online (over zoom) or in a class room setting, oscassionally they can be done in the comfort of your own home (location dependent). Classes can be offered over a shorter duration (rather than five sessions) & tailored to your learning needs.

Refresher classes, for those that have done a group class with me in the past come under a private class too.

For the location, time and cost please enquire directly.
