For expectant families who have special needs that would be better met by one-on-one instruction, we offer several classes on a private basis. Private instruction can generally be completed in a shorter time period. Private classes are held at Foothills Hospital. If there is a medical reason that prevents you from traveling to the hospital, private classes can then be held in the privacy of your home.
The following classes are available for private instruction:
Childbirth Preparation (4-5 hours depending on need)
Sibling Preparation for Attending a Birth (2 hours)
Preparing for a Cesarean Birth (1.5 hours including a tour of the surgical suite when possible)
Magical Beginnings Enchanted Lives (4-8 hours depending on the needs of the family)
Fee: $50.00/hour - Class time can be increased or decreased with a fee adjustment with instructor's approval.
