Valuables and Jewellery

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 class leader is aware of your contact number or if your 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 class leader will endeavour 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/emails/community groups 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 proceeded as planned.

Exclusion of Liability

In the absence of any proven negligence, lack of due diligence or breach of duty by the class leader, Yemaya Birth, Baby & Wellbeing 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.

 

Medical Conditions

It is vital that you inform your teacher of any medical conditions that you or your baby may have which might affect their time in class. All information is treated sensitively and in confidence.

Such conditions may be (for mum) 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 praevia, back or hip issues.

Such conditions (for baby) may be pre-existing medical conditions which include, but are not limited to: Hip Dysplasia, Hearing/Eye sight issues, Down Syndrome/Spina Bifida, Reflux, Colic, Torticollis.

It is your responsibility to keep your class leader up to date with any conditions you may have and advise them of any new conditions or complications.

If you or your baby 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 mums and babies in class and advise if you should attend or not. You may be asked to consult a GP before coming to class.

Never bring your baby to class with an infectious disease such as conjunctivitis or chicken pox. In the instance of sickness and diarrhoea your child must be clear from all symptoms for at least 48 hours.

 

Nappies and Changing your Baby

Always change your baby on the floor using a suitable changing mat. Do not use raised surfaces (unless it is a purpose fitted baby changing table). Please take all nappies away with you unless a clearly marked bin has been provided. Never leave nappies in an open bin and never place these in a Sanitary Towel disposal unit.

 

Recommended Starting Age

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.

You are welcome to attend our Tinies baby classes from newborn however we recommend you wait until around 4-6 weeks postnatal so that you have had time to heal from the birth/had postnatal checks.

Reporting Complaints to your Instructor

Any queries, concerns of complaints should be directed to your class leader at Yemaya Birth, Baby & Wellbeing.
