The cost of the introductory session only is $50 per couple.

After the Introductory Class you will be guided by the instructor on next steps!

Follow-up classes

Including introductory session, the total cost of instruction is $175.00. This covers all visits for the first year.

For couples new to NFP, there is a minimum of 3 classes. This varies for couples who are transferring from another method or just want a refresher.

If the couple wants to schedule a visit after the first year (perhaps after a baby for example) the cost per visit is $40. A receipt can be given for submission to the insurance companies as NFP cost is often reimbursable.
