Frequently Asked Questions
+ How long will I have access to the course?
Each student receives LIFETIME ACCESS to the course! So go through the modules as often as you need and use them as refreshers at any point during your pregnancy and future pregnancies.
+ Can I use my FSA, HSA or HRA Card?
Yes! Childbirth education courses are eligible for reimbursement through your flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA) or heath reimbursement arrangement (HRA). Just use your card at checkout. For more information on how to receive reimbursement, contact your FSA/HSA/HRA benefits administrator for more information.
+ What if I'm already in my 3rd trimester? Is it too late?
No way! We actually recommend that couples wait to take our course until at least 28 weeks so you won't forget any of the info you learn.
+ What if I've already made up my mind on what type of birth I want (and I really want an epidural)?
Our course will still be super beneficial because even with an epidural, you'll still need to learn how to cope with labor pain. Early labor & the time in triage/waiting for the anesthesiologist will be MISERABLE if you aren't prepared!
+ What if I want a natural birth? Would this course prepare me?
This course is DEFINITELY for you. We cover home birth, birth center birth and natural hospital birth. We also have an entire module just for natural birth - how to cope with labor pain where we train you and your birth partner on everything from relaxation to counter pressure to how to use a birth ball. This course is also good for you because in case something unexpected happens during your labor, you'll be equipped to make decisions because you know the evidence.
+ I live internationally. Will this course work for me?
Yes! Childbirth is one thing that connects women all over the world. There will be some differences (for example when we talk about common hospital policies), but most of what is discussed will apply to you.
You will need to pay in USD at checkout, but you'll need to check with your credit card company for any added fees on their end.
+ What is the time requirement for this course?
You can go through this course literally at any pace. You could binge watch it all in a weekend, or you could do it over the course of many weeks. You can also skip over sections if you want to (although we don't really recommend this because the information we present builds on itself). The course and bonus material played at normal speed takes about 10 hours, which is similar to other comprehensive classes. But you can't complete those others while eating a pint of ice cream in your PJs :)
+ Is there a way to connect with other pregnant couples through your course?
YES! We will have a private facebook group moderated by Ben & Jessica where you can ask any questions you may have, meet other couples virtually, and get additional input about your birth plan.
+What if I don't like the course?
We feel so confidently that you will love it that we offer a 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked! Our only request is that you first complete all the modules.
