    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  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  This was a wonderful course! There was a lot of information to learn in two hours but Holly made it easy to understand and fun. I feel much more confident starting solids with my baby now! Holly also checked my car seat for me after the class and discovered it has a recalled part! I’m very happy I took this course.

Thanks also for the theory, visual demos, and hands-on practice - you made sure we got it right before we left! Always a great teacher, thanks so much! 🙂

    5 star review  We wanted to learn some basic first aid skills before the arrival of our first baby, and Holly and Safe Beginnings First Aid class was exactly what we were looking for. She covers the basics from CPR to safe preventative practices around the house, and has excellent cues and descriptions to help you remember the tips, skills and techniques. I would recommend this to anyone with kids, expecting children, or wanting a refresher on first aid skills.

    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 took the course this past week at Buy Buy Baby in Langley. Holly was very personable and professional and covered a lot of relevant information in the 2 hours. I found her very knowledgable, often citing current research and standards while also drawing on her own experience as a mom. I had re-taken my WorkSafe BC OFA Level 1 last year but wanted something more focused on infant care as we are expecting our first soon. I'm really glad we took this course. I found the explanations really resonated for me and the practicality was appreciated. Holly went over and above, we received an email info package before the course so I didn't feel pressure to take notes and remember everything. I would definitely recommend taking this course!

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  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.

    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.
