  • 5 star review  Holly's 2 hour baby CPR course was excellent. I certified as a lifeguard in my teen's (about 20 years ago), so I thought that I would remember the basic first aid skills required to help in a first aid scenario. However, not only did I not remember some of the important skills, but things have changed(!!). Holly's course covers all of the key skills and allows you to try them out, so you get a sense of what it may be like to do it yourself. The information is useful and practical, and you can ask all the questions. Thanks to Holly, I am feeling much more confident about the pending arrival of our first-born.

    5 star review  My husband and I attended a course tonight and are so glad we did!! We learned so much and feel so much more prepared in case anything happened to our son. It was a warm, open atmosphere that was totally supportive for any of our questions! My husband also commented that he learned the proper techniques that were completely different from we would instinctively think to do for a infant, toddler, or child in distress! Would absolutely recommend to any new parent!

  • Holly was excellent, very knowledgeable and made the two hour class fly by. I feel a lot more confident about my first aid skills for sure.

  • 5 star review  I took the four hour infant/toddler first aid and CPR class and it was awesome! It gave me confidence knowing that if an emergency situation arose with my little ones, I would know what to do (rather than panic!). Thank you!

    5 star review  I took Safe Beginning's First Aid course specifically for doulas over the weekend. Jill is obviously very knowledgeable and relayed her expertise in an easy to follow and practical manner. There was lots of practical skills taught and we also had the opportunity to practice on each other and infant dolls. It was a great course and when I need to recertify, I'll look to Safe Beginnings first!

    5 star review  My husband and I are first time parents and heard great things about Holly. We live in downtown and chose to pick her in north van from the great reviews. We are so happy we got our training from her. She is very knowledgeable and professional and at the same time fun and personable. I particularly loved that she is a mother herself so she gave examples of things in the house we should be aware of and shared examples and stories of things her daughter has done that can be a risk. She flagged little things that we don't think of. I learned so much and feel as prepared as one can welcoming a little one into our world and home. I highly recommend her. Great class for couples and friends to do together.

  • I attended the 2 hour course in Salmon Arm yesterday. I am the Nana of infants and toddlers and was grateful to be able to attend a course in our community. It was most helpful! The course moved at a good pace, with time for questions and practice. Jill was knowledgable, energetic and respectful. I recommend this course.

  • 5 star review  I did a course with Holly this weekend. She is very knowledgeable and the class is very engaging. I really enjoyed myself and left feeling like I had learned a lot. I would definitely recommend the non-certified CPR/choking course to any parents or anyone who will be working or spending a lot of time with kids!

    5 star review  I took Holly's course at BuyBuyBaby in Langley today. What a great course! Holly is a fantastic instructor. She spoke clearly and in a way that everyone could understand. She was very thorough and used real life examples to help us understand what she was teaching. I have children of my own and work with babies/toddlers on a daily basis. I feel confident knowing I could help with CPR or choking on any person now. I also loved how she covered other safety topics like car seat safety and home safety. I highly recommend anyone who's around children to take this course!

  • 5 star review  I took Holly’s 2 hour infant/toddler CPR course this past week and brought my 6 month old son with me. Holly was an amazing instructor that went over repetition and personal stories which helped to make the information memorable. I feel confident that I could help an adult or child who was in need of CPR or choking. Many different scenarios were brought up in the course as well as other safety aspects including prevention of poisoning, burns, baby sleep, car seat safety which I’m thankful to have learnt!

    5 star review  I hosted a private course (4 hour infant and child first aid) and Holly was our instructor. She was phenomenal! The information was highly valuable and I would strongly recommend every parent and caregiver take a course through Safe Beginnings.

  • 5 star review  Took the 2 hr infant/cpr class on March 11th at Nurture Collective in Parksville. The material was comprehensive, taught at a good pace with opportunities for questions, and allowed for lots of repetition and practice to create muscle memory. The teacher was experienced, knowledgeable and able and answer all questions asked. My Mom attended and had physical limitations that required modifications of nearly procedures and advice was provided for each. I would definitely recommend this for caregivers of young children.

    This course was extremely beneficial, and I encourage anyone who spends time around infants & children (all you aunties & uncles & friends) to take this course! Yes for safety for the little ones but honestly for your own peace of mind too! I feel SO much more comfortable knowing that I am now educated enough to be helpful and just know the right steps to take during emergency situations. I learned far more than just cpr - the instructor was so great! Highly recommend!
