People who took our online class during COVID-19 had this to say:
Misty was phenomenal. She is a great instructor and kept our attention all weekend. We appreciated her unbiased and factual approach.
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!
We liked being able to following the course from our home. We also appreciated how flexible and understanding Erin was throughout.
Phenomenal workshop with an equally phenomenal facilitator. Erin was so knowledgeable on ALL topics relating to this course, it was a breath of fresh air to know that we could ask any question and she would reply with personal, professional experiences, or both. My husband and I learned so much in this course, as a couple we feel more confident in preparing for our first baby, and now are aware of many additional resources that are available to us. Amazing experience!
Julia's manner and the information she provided was so reassuring. We feel prepared for the birth and so excited to meet our baby girl. It was a delight to be enrolled in her class.
Easy going, could speak up and ask questions without feeling judged.
Erin's enthusiasm for babies, parenting, and supporting new parents really made the class shine.
The suggestions for community resources were fantastic. It definitely helps to have a starting point to know what to look for and what questions to ask.
Lilly was friendly, engaging, relatable, professional and very knowledgable. We really enjoyed her as our educator!
This course was a great introduction in all things labour. Things are a bit different in Covid-19 times and our instructor made a point of keeping us up to date with what to expect while being very empathetic with the challenges this situation brings to labour and tricks to get through it positively.
Lilly was great at fostering a community environment through the screen! She was always available for questions and encouraged group atmosphere in an unprecedented new learning environment!
Very fun and informative! Lily made online learning more community like than we thought possible! It was great to experience online learning from the comfort of our own home!
