If you can't make it to a class or miss a part of one, you can come to any of our other classes and catch up on the information this way. Please inform us if you plan to do this, so we are aware of class numbers. We have put together a DVD with class information, and there is a PDF booklet available for free download on the members page, so information is also available via these means.
We will send out newsletters to you if you have ticked this on the enrollment form. You are welcome to read through previous issues here. We want newsletters to be of help for parents, with articles of interest, and links to services and upcoming events. BirthResources also has a blog, YouTube and Facebook account.
Group Get together for BirthResources Class members
We will set a date and location for a group get together for Birth Resources class members and email out the members contact list for people who wish to keep in contact with others they have met during the class.
