In the birth of a child, the whole community is born anew; it is renewed, it is revived and revitalized." ~J.S. Mbiti
Parenthood does not come with a handbook, but is rather an experience shaped by the life cycle of both the parents, resulting in a cumulative experience for the child. The impending arrival of a child is highly regarded as a time of excitement, as mothers and partners fall in love with their new baby and experience the pleasure of becoming a family. We recognize that you are a unique woman, giving birth with your own unique experiences, preferences and coping styles.
Mamatoto Village provides a variety of classes that can assist you in almost every aspect of the pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. Sharing information in small class settings, our instructors are certified, knowledgeable and experienced. More than just a useful source of evidence based information, Mamatoto Village Childbirth Classes provide a source of preparation, learning, relaxation, discovery and support.
Pre-registration is recommended for all classes with the exception of drop-in classes or groups.
* Prepare * Learn * Relax * Discover *
Our instructors devote quite a bit of time and energy into preparing for their classes and workshops. Please take the time to let us know in advance if there is a reason you are unable to attend a class for which you are registered.
In the event that you need to cancel, our policy is as follows:
If you cancel with at least seven days notice before a class begins, you will receive a credit in the amount that you paid for the class. Our classes are semi-private (limited to 6 pregnant people with 1 support person) and so we do not offer refunds. No credit will be given for any cancellation with less than 48 hours notice.
In the event that we cancel, our policy is as follows:
In the unlikely event that we need to cancel a class we will refund all monies paid in full within 30 days, except in unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, such as war or the threat of war, riots, terrorist activity, civil strife, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, flood or adverse weather conditions. In those cases every possible attempt will be made to reschedule the class at a day/time that fits best with the schedule of the majority of registrants. Notification of our cancellation will be made via either a telephone call, text message or an e-mail to you prior to the beginning of a class.
