"The Masterclass in Labour and Delivery was perfect for our busy schedules. The flexibility of being able to watch the videos when it was convenient for us sold us on taking this course, and the content was exactly what we were looking for! We would highly recommend this course to anyone having a baby."

Why This Course?
I remember going into the birth of my son, anxious and scared at what might happen, while being so excited to meet him! It is such a scary and joyous time! Even though it did not go as I had hoped, I felt prepared going in and was able to come out proud and strong with a healthy little boy in my arms! I was luckier than most, as I had the medical knowledge to prepare me for the decisions I had to make.
- Dr. Alicia
The delivery of my second son was a scary experience. His heart rate was abnormal and I ended up needing an operative vaginal delivery. This could have been a traumatic experience if I hadn't had the knowledge and wisdom I had from my training and experience doing obstetrics and delivering babies.
- Dr. Sarah
We understand that most women do not have the knowledge and experience that we do from our training and the work we do day to day helping families bring new babies into this world.
That's why we created this course; to share our collective knowledge from our years of training and working with women and their families helping to bring new life into this world as well as the wisdom we've gained through our own birth and postpartum experiences.

"This course is really good! I learned a ton, and considering that this is going to be my number two...that is saying something!"
"A very in-depth course from two personable and experienced doctors. They take you all the way from packing your hospital bag to how to swaddle your newborn, and when it's ok to exercise post-partum! Along with all the in-depth medical info and options for the actual birthing process. A highly valuable resource! I'm sure I'll review it several times over the next few months leading up to my delivery."
