The HypnoBirthing® for Parents course is taught in five 3-hour classes. Pregnant women attend the classes with the support person of their choice—husband, life partner, other family member, doula, labor companion, etc. The cost of the course includes: 15 hours of class time; a textbook (which includes an audio CD featuring relaxation and birth rehearsal imagery tracks); many handouts; and the Rainbow Relaxation CD to practice with at home.

Your privacy is very important to me. Regardless of whether you choose to register online or by mail, I will never sell or share your information.


Group Courses: $375, with a $100 deposit due upon registration, in order to hold your space in the course, and the $275 balance due at the first class.

Private Courses: Private classes are available at additional cost. Please contact Lori at (301)365-2428 or moc.gnihtribonpyhhtriblufyojnull@irol for additional information.

Refund Policy: The $100 course deposit is only refundable in situations of pre-term labor prior to the course beginning. The balance of the course fee is due at the first class. Once classes have begun, I am unable to offer refunds if you are unable to complete the series.

Make-up Classes: Make-up classes may be scheduled, if time permits, for an additional $100 per class. I offer make-up classes Monday – Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., or one Saturday morning per month between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – Noon. The Saturday morning time slot fills very quickly and far in advance. If I am teaching two concurrent course series, you may attend the other course, during the same week that you will be missing your class, for free (space permitting).
