People who took our online class during COVID-19 had this to say:
Discussions and candid disclosure of information about various topics
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!
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.
I had no idea what doing the class over Zoom would be like but Brandie was excellent!
Again thanks for all the work you've done to make the class accessible during this time and to update all the resources.
Aside from all the info provided by the educator, I liked the interaction with other couples
Comfort of my own home :)
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.
Easy going, could speak up and ask questions without feeling judged.
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
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!
