Getting It Right from Day One

Learn how to keep your baby safe in their car seat during their first year of life. Presented by Holly Choi, nationally-certified Child Passenger Safety Technician-Instructor (CPST-I)

Becoming a parent for the first time is challenging and often confusing; with all sorts of contradictory information being given between the government, health care providers, friends and family. Though installing car seats shouldn’t be complicated, it can be an extremely daunting task for new parents, experienced parents and other caregivers. This course is designed to help you de-mystify installing your car seat, clarify best practices and get you to a place of confidence regarding your child’s safety in your vehicle.

Supporting Neonatal Resuscitation

Designed specifically for birth doulas to upgrade their knowledge and support their clients

“Supporting Neonatal Resuscitation” helps doulas understand procedures of neonatal resuscitation and the NICU so they can confidently support their clients through unforeseen or complex birth outcomes. This course operates from within the boundaries of a doula’s scope of practice to offer skills to understand the environment and empathize with their clients as well as care for themselves during and after critical incidents.

What our students are saying

Don't wait! Dive in - there's always more to learn and this team educates with patience and clarity, imparting wisdom and confidence. These are invaluable, lifesaving skills that every care provider should know. While I've worked as a care provider for quite some time, these courses offered new perspectives with clarity and non-judgment further building upon my skills.
