Full refunds will only be given for unexpected early births (provided you are less than 36 weeks pregnant at the start of the course) or if we need to cancel the course.

If presenters have any COVID-19 symptoms, to keep everyone safe they will stay home & we will do our best to arrange another presenter to teach the course.
