Parents are saying...

Easy, convenient and comfortable

by Carrie

Easy, convenient and comfortable from my own home.

a human connection

Eric

The WeeHuman courses are planned and presented by instructors who care deeply about children and who really look forward to making a human connection with the class attendees. During the pandemic, it felt like our local hospital system was struggling to catch up in moving their educational resources into an online format; WeeHuman was already there and ready, working with parents-to-be from all over North America with a mix of on-camera sessions and PDF/video format material. They're already standing head and shoulders above a lot of the conventional neonatal/postpartum care education resources.

Nice job

Erika

good tidbits of information. Easy to absorb in bite size pieces. nice job

Very helpful

Melissa

Overall very helpful! Lots of information was covered and it was easy to follow along and understand. The lessons were time efficient and effective in conveying the information across.

Great information for informed choices

Tina

Lots of great information to help you make informed decisions during your birthing journey

Great source of calm information and guidance

Shannen

The Newborn Care class was amazing for me and my husband! Kelly was a great instructor and the class had a solid mix of educational information and practical advice. The blend of live (Zoom) sessions and at your own pace lessons made it easy to fit the class into our increasingly busy schedule. We felt much more confident and prepared for our first baby after this class. Kelly and all the folks at WeeHuman are incredibly responsive to questions in between live sessions. I loved the first class I took so much that I didn’t hesitate to sign up for the Breastfeeding class (which is also great and I would highly recommend). Especially in these uncertain times, WeeHuman has been a great source of calm information and guidance!

helpful video lessons, and links to many resources to explore

Julietta

Kelly at WeeHuman did an excellent job of providing newborn care education for us! The newborn care class included helpful video lessons, and links to many resources to explore; it was easy to use the materials to practice swaddling and other skills on a doll.

More relaxed and prepared now

WeeHuman Parent

I'm very thankful to all of you for getting this program out there, especially with all the covid stuff and classes being cancelled. This was amazing to get creditable information about what to expect for a first time mom! I feel a bit more relaxed and prepared now.

Loved it!
