Childbirth Education Classes

My complete private in-home childbirth classes afford you the flexibility to arrange class times around your busy schedule or childcare issues. Daytime, evening, and weekend times are available, scheduling four separate sessions for your ten hour course at a cost of $375. I also offer single sessions focused on your specific interest for $75 (2 hours). I’m happy to discuss options for providing you with a customized education package. Private childbirth classes can be provided using American Sign Language (ASL). I travel to homes in the Tampa, Wesley Chapel, and Clearwater, Florida area.
