Please ensure your local provider is aware of your contact number or 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 local provider 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 prior to leaving for class. If the weather is bad, please also check your local group as created and faciliated by your teacher – this may be a facebook group, WhatsApp etc. 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 was run. Exclusion of Liability In the absence of any proven negligence, lack of due diligence or breach of duty by the instructor, Nurture the Borders and its local providers or employees, 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, your baby or tot may have which might affect their time in class.

It is your responsibility to keep them up to date with any conditions you may have and advise them of any new conditions or complications. If you, your baby or tot is 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 asses 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 or tot 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. We recommend you wait until 6 weeks postnatal before commencing our Baby programme.
