A note from Jenny Claire: Thank you for your interest in my classes. Due to a loss in my family, I am taking a break from teaching until further notice. I will update the class schedule when I feel ready again to provide the quality of childbirth education that families deserve in preparing to welcome a new little one. I wish you all the best with your pregnancy and birth!
