Terms and Conditions
Health and Safety
The health and safety of the babies and parents/carers in our classes is of paramount importance.
Full public liability insurance is provided by UK COACHING and can be viewed at any time during the class. You will be asked to complete a short questionnaire prior to exercising to ensure that you are suitable to participate. You are responsible to keep me informed of any changes to your pregnancy or health during a course. Movement & Bloom pregnancy classes are suitable for all ‘low risk’ pregnancies. Please speak to your midwife, GP or consultant if you are unsure.
All participants must be cleared to exercise by their midwife, GP or consultant prior to attending Movement & Bloom CLASS. If you have had a caesarean section, then you must wait 10-12 weeks before attending a Movement & Bloom exercise class.
Please note that it is your responsibility to inform your class leader if you or your child suffers from a medical condition, which they should be aware of. This information may be recorded however will be kept confidential unless in the event of a medical emergency, where it would be shared with health care professionals.
Every effort will be made by Movement & Bloom to provide a safe and hazard-free zone however, parents are always responsible for the safety and wellbeing of their child. Please ask your class leader if you have any concerns about any activities.
All activities are optional and if at any time you don’t want to take part in a particular activity or element of the class this is absolutely fine. Please make your class leader aware in this situation.
Movement & Bloom are to be undertaken under constant adult supervision at all times. In the unfortunate event of an accident please report this to your class leader as soon as possible who will, where relevant, contact the emergency services and work with them where possible.
Please report even apparently minor accidents to your class leader so they can assist you in filling out the necessary paperwork.
All equipment is carefully checked before and after each use. Should you find anything unsatisfactory please make your class leader aware of this immediately.
Most of our venues have specific nappy changing facilities. In the interest of hygiene, we would ask that you change your baby in the proper nappy changing area and not within the activity area. If you are unsure where this is located, please do ask your class leader.
Movement & Bloom cannot accept any responsibility for the loss or damage of any personal possessions.
Parents are advised not to attend a class if they or their baby has a serious infection and to inform the class leader as to the nature of the infection so that other parents can be alerted.

Refunds/Cancellations of classes
Movement and Bloom is under no obligation to refund or transfer your money in the event that you are unable to attend part or the entirety of the term. If you are aware of any dates on which you will be unable to attend a class (for example holidays, keep in touch days for work, appointments etc) please let us know when you book your course or, if something comes up after you have booked your course, as soon as you become aware of the issue. We may (at our discretion) be able to block out these dates so that they will not count towards the number of classes you have booked.
If you miss a class without having agreed this with us in advance, please contact us as soon as possible as you might be able to join another class on a different day (but this will always be at our discretion and subject to availability). Unfortunately, we cannot allow you to roll-over classes at the end of your course or offer any refund for classes which you miss.
Movement & Bloom have the right to cancel without refund in exceptional circumstances beyond our control (for example, fire, flood, vehicle breakdown, serious illness, treacherous weather etc). We will in these circumstances, wherever possible, run a catch-up class, however, this cannot be guaranteed. Where the class is held in a different location Movement and Bloom is not responsible for any travel expenses occurred.
We regret that (except in exceptional circumstances, which Movement & Bloom will determine at its sole discretion) once the fee has been paid to secure your place, we cannot issue any refunds or credits.
Where you book a course, you are committing to the whole 4- or 6-week course, and we are unfortunately unable to accept any cancellation of your booking. This is because you are reserving a space which could have been offered to another Mama and we may not be able to fill that space if you decide to cancel. Before placing your booking please do check that you will be able to attend the whole course.
We will do our best to avoid cancelling classes, but if we do have to cancel any class, we will give you the choice between moving to another class on a different day (subject to availability) or receiving a refund for the cancelled class.
Please note that once you have booked your place and paid the fee indicated to secure the booking, fees are non-returnable and non-transferable. You will receive an email confirmation once your booking has been confirmed. During the booking process, you will be required to read and agree to Movement & Bloom’s Terms and Conditions. No place is fully guaranteed unless full payment of the term fees is made.
Movement & Bloom allow parents to photograph their own baby/babies during our classes. Whilst we would ask parents to ensure they only photograph their own baby/babies, occasionally your child may be photographed in the background. Movement & Bloom Pre- and Post-natal Fitness does also occasionally photograph/video for promotional purposes i.e., for use on Movement & Bloom Pre- and Post-natal Fitness Play website / Facebook page / promotional material etc. Whenever we are photographing/videoing for this purpose we would make parents aware and ask for their approval. If you would not like your child to be photographed in either or both of the above scenarios, please make your class leader aware.
Yours and your baby’s enjoyment is of upmost importance to us, and we really hope you love our classes. In the event that you are unhappy with any aspect of Movement & Bloom Pre and Post-natal Fitness please do let us know by emailing us at Movementandbloom@gmail.com and we will do our best to resolve any issues.
