What our participants are saying
"Jenna is an excellent instructor and we found the classes engaging and informative."
"A job well done for organizing the online classes in the midst of a pandemic! Well done! My partner and I are thankful the classes continued online and found the new format still great! It was nice in that some more awkward questions did come up more often as people weren’t shy typing them in!"
"We were very impressed. The online classes exceeded our expectation. Christine, in particular, was amazing. She gave information in a way that was not overwhelming or scary, and also was very entertaining. We really looked forward to Thursday evenings."
"Kortney was a fantastic instructor, very engaging and knowledgeable! We learned a lot and so glad we signed up for Douglas College Pre-Natal Class. Kudos!!"
"I would also like to take the time to mention how amazing it is that you offer this program to new parents; before we got surprised by the early arrival of our son, it was one of the few beacons of light during this pandemic that gave us hope and made us feel like we had a chance at being adequately prepared. So even if I don't get to enjoy it, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this."
“The prenatal classes have been really useful and the instructor has been great at making herself available after the course too.
The breastfeeding café has also been great during these times – The way the cafés have been run has made it possible to get to know other mums. It’s so helpful to have a group of mums who are so supportive and in the same situation so I didn’t feel like I lost the social side.
I will definitely be recommending Douglas College based on this resource which really does set you apart from any other prenatal course. Thank you for adding this to the course and for allowing access to continue postpartum!”
