Cancellation of booking for a class

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the need to cancel or reschedule it is necessary that appropriate communication be given to Elaine Smallwood.

A deposit of $190 is required to secure your position in the classes. The balance is paid when you attend the class by cash. If you do not attend, your deposit is not refunded. The amount of $90 of the $190 deposit will be refunded for cancellations for class bookings which take place at least 4 weeks before the class date.

If the booking is cancelled within 4 weeks of the class date, this same amount will be reimbursed only if the cancelled place is filled before the class date, otherwise the full deposit will be retained. Lotuscalmbirth® will endeavour to find a replacement for the class. The balance withheld cover costs of bank and administration charges incurred with cancellation and re advertising the couples place in the class. The $90 will be reimbursed via an internet deposit to the cancelled couples bank account. Please take every care to attend to the course on the day you are booked in. I respect difficult circumstances can arise and will extend kindness and assistance wherever possible to enable you to attend.

Lotuscalmbirth® will ensure you have a confirmation email, including directions when registering for a class. A reminder email will be sent one week prior to the class. It is solely your responsibility to remember your course dates and details and to follow up on any concerns or queries. You are most welcome to email lainey@lotuscalmbirth.com if you have any questions.
