Retreat Terms and Conditions

Registration Process and Payment Methods

This event is hosted Evidence Based Birth (hereby known as “Host”)

Retreat registrations will not be confirmed until all forms are completed and the correct payment is received and processed.

Registrants should obtain confirmation before committing to other travel arrangements. The Host will NOT be responsible for any travel or accommodation costs or reimbursements.

Host cannot be responsible for your spam filters blocking your confirmation email or other important email messages about the event.

If you choose to stay on-site, your retreat registration fee DOES INCLUDE MEALS AND LODGING for Friday evening through Sunday at noon. If you would like to stay overnight Sunday, you must choose the “Stay an additional night” option and pay for that night accordingly.

Your retreat registration fee DOES NOT INCLUDE TRAVEL (Airfare, etc.) costs. Attendees are responsible for making their own transportation arrangements, as well as arranging and paying for extra expenses and meals on the days before and after the 2-day retreat.

We will make every attempt to help provide rides to people who arrive to Chicago O’Hare on Friday between 12 noon and 6 PM, but we cannot guarantee that a ride will be there in a timely manner. Transportation will be present at the airport roughly every two hours during that time frame.

If you would like to bring a family member with you (spouse, partner, etc.), and they will be staying with you on site, you must register for a “roommate” room, notify EBB of your intent to bring a family member, and pay a family member registration fee of $120 per family member per night. This family member fee will cover their meals and hotel stay.
