Child Care Policy

Because this is an intensive two-day workshop, we ask that, out of respect for others, participants arrange for childcare (including infants) for education sessions for the How to Start a Birth Center Workshop.

Transfer/Cancellation Policy

During the registration process, you can elect to purchase event insurance (only available to U.S. registrants).  If you purchased event insurance and need to cancel and file a claim, click here to be taken to the refund claim center.  

If you did not purchase event insurance or your reason for cancellation is not eligible for a refund through the event insurance provider, you may apply for a refund through AABC.  To be eligible for a refund from AABC, a notice of cancellation must be received two weeks (10 business days) before the conference by the AABC office (215.234.8068 | A 15% processing fee will be deducted from each refund.

You may elect to transfer your registration to another workshop for a 15% processing fee.  Transfer requests must be received two weeks (10 business days) before the in-person workshop by the AABC office.  

Refund and transfer requests cannot be approved less than two weeks before the workshop, to include no-shows.  Nametag sharing, splitting, and reprints are strictly prohibited.

FRONTIER STUDENTS: FNU students may cancel or transfer for a processing fee of $40.  However, if you cancel or transfer less than two weeks prior to the workshop dates, you will not be refunded any portion of your materials fee and you will need to purchase a $475 student ticket ($415 for members) with your next workshop registration.

Event Cancellation or Postponement

AABC reserves exclusive right to modify, postpone/reschedule or cancel programs for any reason, including but not limited to emergency, inclement weather or other 'acts of God'.  If there is an event cancellation, every attempt will be made to reschedule, and registration fees will be applied to the rescheduled event date.  Any travel, lodging, or incidental expenses incurred related to a cancelled event cannot be refunded under any circumstances.  If a cancelled event cannot be rescheduled, AABC will determine an equitable basis for the refund of a portion or all of the registration fees, after due consideration of circumstances and expenditures.
