Refunds and Cancellations
Mama Blossom is under no obligation to refund or transfer your money in the event that you are unable to attend part of or the entire course. They are not obliged to guarantee an alternative class for missed lessons (unless this is due to them cancelling class).
If mum has baby early or during a course a pro rata refund will be given or credited towards baby classes if they run locally.
In the unfortunate event you should suffer a miscarriage, please inform Mama Blossom and we will arrange a FULL refund.
Video & Photography
Pregnancy Classes: To respect the 'open and honest' nature of classes no observers, family members, partners or friends are permitted in Yoga based Birthing classes or nurturing baby massage & yoga classes in any circumstances.
We have a no photography policy in class to protect the privacy of the mums unless you gain permission from your class teacher and have written consent from all of the mums photographed in class. Such images are not to shared via any public platform such as facebook or other internet sites unless you have written permission from your teacher and the mums which feature in the picture.
Mama Blossom forbids the right to film, reproduce or share any part of the lessons in any form (i.e. you-tube, internet sites, DVDs, photography etc) and anyone suspected of continually filming, observing or photographing the lessons for this purpose will be asked to leave the course.
Mama Blossom cannot be held liable for the actions of third parties.
Valuables and Jewellery
All property taken to class is left at your own risk. Mama Blossom accepts no responsibility for the loss or damage of any personal possessions before, during or after class.
Withdrawal of service
Mama Blossom may at their discretion refuse entry to a client onto its courses.
Health and Safety
Whilst you are waiting for your class please keep noise to a minimum so that all lessons can take place in a calm atmosphere. Do not enter the studio whilst the current class is in progress; please wait to be invited in by your teacher.
Please be respectful of other mums in your class by ensuring that any personal belongings are neatly stored at the side of the room so that they are not a trip hazard and please make sure your mobile phone is on silent.
Please ensure your Mama Blossom is aware if your contact number or emergency contact number changes. They can only notify you in the event of a cancelled class, if they have up-to-date contact information for you.
Cancelled Sessions — Illness or Bad Weather
Your local provider will endeavor to ensure your scheduled class always runs. However, from time to time unforeseen circumstances will prevent this. They will ALWAYS attempt to make contact with you if class is cancelled, either via phone, text or email. Please ensure you always check your phone prior to leaving for class.
If your class teacher has deemed the weather fit to travel and has still run the class but you personally have decided not to attend then no refund will be given if the class was run.
Exclusion of Liability
In the absence of any proven negligence, lack of due diligence or breach of duty by the instructor, Mama Blossom, the participation of you, your partner, your baby or your child or those in whose care you have placed your baby/child for the purpose of attending class, is done so entirely at your and their own risk.
Such conditions may be pre existing medical conditions or conditions which arise during pregnancy which include, but are not limited to: high blood pressure, low blood pressure, bleeding, spotting, history of miscarriage, placenta previa, back or hip issues.
It is your responsibility to keep them up to date with any conditions you may have and advise them of any new conditions or complications.
If you are unwell or if you are unsure whether to attend a class or not you must inform your teacher BEFORE you come to class so that they can assess any risks to the other women in class and advise if you should attend or not.
Recommended Starting Stage
For pregnancy, whilst some research shows exercise and movement can be beneficial in helping to prevent miscarriage, we suggest you wait until week 14 of your pregnancy before starting classes. If you choose to begin sessions sooner, this is a decision taken at your own risk.
