Private Classes

We believe group interaction is helps not only solidify the information, but also makes learning more fun. However, we offer private classes in our childbirth class locations or your home for those who aren't able to make one of the regularly scheduled sessions. Private sessions are shorter than the group classes, and can often be tailored to meet your specific informational needs. Email info@alaboroflove.org for details about the private class of your interest.
