    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  Holly did an awesome job teaching CPR and safety at the BuyBuyBaby in Langley. She was professional, yet friendly, and very thorough despite the class only being the 2 hour session. My husband and I walked away with a wealth of new knowledge and now feel comfortable in case of an emergency with young children and infants. Well worth the money.

    5 star review  We organized for a private class for 16 (mixture of new parents, expectant parents, & grandparents) and after having some difficulty getting an indoor space large enough we decided to hold it outside under some canopies in our yard. Holly was very responsive throughout the whole planning process on email, arrived on time, and was very personable and professional. Our group had a great time, learned tons, and came away feeling much more confident in our abilities to handle an emergency whether it was for an infant or an adult. I'd highly recommend Holly and Safe Beginnings. For us, booking a private session for a larger group made it much more cost effective for everyone.

  • positive review  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!

    5 star review  I just finished the Safe Beginnings First Aid corse with Jill. She was clear and concise. The corse was easy to follow. Enough practice was done throughout the class to allow for memory of the content to form.

    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 attended this course a few months ago and found it very interesting. I learned a lot and was even able to bring my 5 month old along. Today my daughter ended up choking on some food and it surpised me at how easily I was able to stay calm pick her up and do what I was taught. The food was out in seconds and she was a littlw shook up but okay. I dont even want to think about what would have happened if I did not part take in this class. I always thought Iwas supposed to just tap their backs, thankfully I was taught the proper way. So again thankyou, tonight you helped me save my daughter. ♡

    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  Great course. I've taken a lot of first aid courses over the years and found Holly's teaching style to be much more memorable and relevant. The way she explains things and breaks it down is straight forward, tangible and appeals to your common sense, she also gives you cues to help you remember! Loved the course and even better loved that it was at home with friends!

  • 5 star review  My husband and I attended the infant/toddler CPR course and found it extremely helpful. Holly was a wealth of knowledge and covered a variety of topics. I felt well-informed rather than overwhelmed. I would highly recommend the course to any couple with young children and/or caregivers. Worth every penny!

    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!

  • 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  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.

    5 star review  This course was so great! And it couldn't have come at a better time for us. After the course, we hadn't been home for more than 10 minutes, when someone started banging on our door...my husband rushed to answer and there on our doorstep was a neighbour...and she was choking!!! My husband immediately put to use the choking technique that Holly literally just taught us and was able to dislodge the item. He saved her life! Our neighbour was home alone and started choking so she ran outside and was banging on all the doors on our floor hoping someone was home. He said if she had come the day before he wouldn't have had the confidence to help her. Thank you Holly!!! From us AND our neighbour!!
