Please share: how much do you charge for classes and how much do you make annually?

I charge $50-150/couple for childbirth classes. I only teach a few times a year, so the income from that is negligible.

Is the class a one-time thing? Or multiple sessions?

Is that per hour or per class?

 Curious...

I teach Birth Boot Camp classes, 10 sessions that are 2+ hours plus they get materials.  I charge $300 per couple.  It is comparable to other classes of the same length/depth in my geographical area.  I think it's pretty standard.  It's hard to get established depending on how big your birth community is and your connections.  I've taught 2 series this year, a total of 3 couples.  So I "made" $900.  But most of that was gone to pay for the teaching space and marketing.
