TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Client Terms & Conditions
Courses must be booked and paid for at the point of booking unless otherwise agreed.
A booking does not constitute the creation of a contract and Better Birth reserves the right to decline to process a booking for any reason whatsoever. If the booking is not able to be fulfilled Better Birth will promptly refund all monies. VAT is not applicable.
Better Birth reserves the right to amend or cancel any course, course times, dates or publishes prices. Changes to course prices, times and dates will be advised before the course start date and any course already paid in full will not be subject to the increased prices. Should Better Birth need to cancel part of a course, a refund will only be given for the part of the course not yet delivered minus the cost of course materials.
In the case of cancellation by a client, £150 is non-refundable. Further to that, the following cancellation charges will apply:
Days before course start date Cancellation charge
30 or more No further cancellation charge
14 – 29 days 50% of course fee
13 days or less 100% of course fee
However in the unlikely event the course date you have chosen is cancelled by me, you will be offered an alternative date, if you cannot attend this date, I will refund your full course fee.
Any recordings or written material included as part of this course are the sole property of Better Birth and may not be used or copied other than for the personal use of the participant without obtaining prior written permission from Better Birth.
The participant also agrees that Better Birth shall hold your details on file and on computer and, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. You are able to view your individual file by giving not less than seven days written notice.
Using Hypnobirthing techniques is not a substitute for the advice or presence during birth or any part of your pregnancy or labour of a qualified medical practitioner, midwife or obstetrician. It does not represent in fact or otherwise an alternative to appropriate medical care or for professional medical advice in any way shape or form. Better Birth accepts no responsibility for the inappropriate use of Hypnobirthing techniques or complications or harm to any third party resulting from the use of Hypnobirthing techniques as a substitute for medical advice. Hypnobirthing is intended solely as an ‘aid’ to ‘help’ increase the comfort of labour and birth and is not in any way a guarantee or promise of expected, imagined or actual outcome of the labour or birth in any way, shape or form. Participation in Hypnobirthing classes in any part or in total by any person or third party is undertaken with the understanding by any persons or third party that no litigation or legal action whatsoever will be initiated or that no form of compensation or reimbursement or refund will be claimed or applied for at any time now or in the future against Better Birth and its representatives under any circumstances whatsoever.
Any booking of a Hypnobirthing class assumes full and informed compliance to and agreement with all of these terms and conditions of sale. In the event of a dispute, English law pertains.
