People who took our online class during COVID-19 had this to say:
The time that she took at the end to have a group chat and ask us all to check in. I would highly recommend that she do this with classes in the future. Ask questions and have the group check in. It was really nice to get the feedback and feelings of others in the class.
Erin is amazing at her job, she made the class easy to listen and follow. Her energy brought the class to life, as it was filled with tons of information. It says a lot that it held my husbands full attention throughout ! Great class , great instructor!
Erin was absolutely amazing, very knowledgeable and kept the class interactive even in the online platform. Very helpful at answering questions and gave a lot of great tips.
Great class despite changed format
Aside from all the info provided by the educator, I liked the interaction with other couples
Again thanks for all the work you've done to make the class accessible during this time and to update all the resources.
Before Covid-19, we both had very busy schedules and it was easier for us to sign up for one single day. We’ve also been reading a lot of books in preparation so we felt that a one day session would be ok. It definitely exceeding our expectations. I think my partner is much more ready for when I’m in labour as am I!
Learning about travel, answering questions related to Covid 19, having her demonstrate baby carriers (I was about to give up on mine before this) and just all of the support for caring for a newborn that we would have otherwise not known.
Discussions and candid disclosure of information about various topics
This class was great! She was so well prepared and had wonderful images and props and ways of explaining things that made learning about giving birth very accessible.
My partner and I were both really happy with how easy Zoom was to use. Brandie made it feel like we were really in class!
I had no idea what doing the class over Zoom would be like but Brandie was excellent!
