Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions


You will be asked whether you consent to be contacted by Your Hypnobirthing Midwives when you sign up to a course with us. You also agree with the following terms and conditions before booking a place on a Your Hypnobirthing Midwives Course.

1. Availability if courses

Courses must be booked in advance.

2. Orders

A booking does not constitute the creation of a contract and Your Hypnobirthing Midwives reserves the right to decline to process a booking for any reason whatsoever. If the booking is not able to be fulfilled Your Hypnobirthing Midwives will promptly refund all monies.

3. VAT

VAT is not applicable.

4. Participant cancellation and exchange

The fee will be repaid promptly and in full if your baby arrives before the course starts, or in the very unlikely event of the course being cancelled. These are the only circumstances under which a refund will be made. – In the event that an individual session is missed, please contact Your Hypnobirthing Midwives to see if you can catch up via a phone session or a paid private face-to-face session. – It is possible to exchange a group course for an earlier course (e.g. from May to April) if there is availability. – It is possible to exchange a course for a later course (e.g. from April to May) if 30 days notice is given before the start of the original course booked.

5. Course amendment or cancellation

Course dates and times may be changed in exceptional circumstances. If the new time and date is not convenient to you, Your Hypnobirthing Midwives will try to offer an alternative course but if one is not available you will be given a refund for the session or sessions changed. – Any session cancelled will be rescheduled if possible. If this is not possible or if alternative dates cannot be agreed, all monies paid by the client for sessions not yet taken will be refunded and no further payments will be owed to Your Hypnobirthing Midwives. The price refunded per session not yet taken will be calculated as half the full course fee. No refund will be made for sessions already taken. In the event that your normal hypnobirthing teacher is unexpectedly unavailable to teach all or part of the course a suitably trained and qualified hypnobirthing instructor will be provided, and in such circumstances a refund will NOT be given.
