Online Prenatal Program
In combination with this 3-day in-studio course, Leah will be offering her Online Prenatal Specialist Program at a discounted rate to Comprehensive Students who sign up to participate in the Hawai`i Postnatal Specialist Program Course. The first opportunity to participate in this course will be in March and we highly recommend that this Online Prenatal Specialist Program be taken before the May 4-6th course so that you can get the most out of your time with Leah. We understand that life happens and that you may not be able to commit to this Online course in March, so Leah will also offer it after the Hawai`i course (TBA). Offer only valid in 2018. If you are interested in the Online Prenatal Program, please contact Leah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
