Our workshops for student midwives are always in high demand, booking out with waitlists, which means invariably keen students miss out on coming.  As a result, we've had to introduce a strict refund/cancellation policy as below:

 

Bookings are only confirmed upon payment of course fees (non-refundable). Our administration team will then forward you a confirmation email containing important information about the classes. If you wish to book but have any concerns or questions, please email hayley@midwivesandmothers.com.au BEFORE paying your course fees.

Please note your course fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. You can transfer your booking to another participant by emailing hayley@midwivesandmothers.com.au with details PRIOR to the date of the workshop. 

 

You may also request to transfer your booking to another workshop (pending availability) by emailing hayley@midwivesandmothers.com.au PRIOR to the date of the workshop you've booked into.

You are only entitled to 1 booking transfer. In the event you are unable to make the 2nd workshop you've booked into, course fees are forfeited.
